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?

All staff attend a Dementia Friends Information Session.

Staff to have access to the Guide for Customer Facing Staff information booklet.

Practice already has a disabled access on the ground floor surgery. Clear signage for surgeries at various points, and patients are collected from the waiting room and escorted back to reception by the practitioners.

Posters advertising 'working to become dementia friendly' to be put in waiting room areas with information leaflets in a holder for patients with dementia and their carers about local support services.

Quiet surgeries can be available where TVs and music is turned off to prevent background noise.

Information about practice working to become dementia friendly to be put on the website.

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

Due to the large number of staff working within the organisation we aim to make sure everybody has access to the information and training.
