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 ask our patients how they feel our surgery could be made more dementia friendly.

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

We will review the effectiveness of our actions by discussing feedback at team meetings.

We will arrange Dementia Friends sessions on different days of the week so that all can attend.
