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 are a diverse group catering for all, including those living with dementia and their carers. We are a friendly arts and craft group and wish to learn more about what we can do to support people living with dementia in our community.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
As we have a range of people with various needs it is difficult to know what difficulties people within the group face but we will try and make our activities suitable for all.
