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?

Our free and flexible delivery service is a great help to people who would forget or become confused when picking up their medication.

Talking through medication with patients.

Working closely with the surgery across the road so patients don't have to go far.

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

We are still learning how to recognise dementia and how to help. We will continue to watch videos and discuss with each other how to improve our knowledge.
