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?

Warriors are hoping to provide a special awareness day for Dementia, whereby persons living with Dementia attend the match and are looked after by Dementia Friends Champions for a period prior to the match and during the match. During this time their carers will be given an opportunity to watch the match along with other carers or have a respite session, depending on choices and needs.

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

There would be health and safety implications which would be met. Having enough people to ensure a safe environment for the persons living with dementia.
