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?
BICSA operate a memory cafe once a month to bring people together for a social gathering. Each month different games, songs and gentle activities are on offer with free tea, coffee and cake.
Every month we also try to information share as knowing where to get support and from whom is important.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Support for the volunteers who run the project is a challenge also for those staff to know where to get help.
