1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

We will provide Dementia Awareness Training for all our staff to enable them to better understand, respect and work with clients who might be dealing with dementia.

Our offices will become dementia friendly.

We seek to have a better understanding of the Mental Capacity Act.

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

Our key challenge will be to understand the scope of advice that we are able to provide as a client has cognition issues or appears to be passing through stages of dementia.
