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?

Right at Home Guildford & Farnham are passionate about supporting people living with dementia and their families to live a better life. They already run a regular singing group in Farnham for people with dementia and also a Sunflower Cafe. As a founding member of the dementia action alliance we aim to work with the other members to maximise the benefits for those affected by dementia in the area.

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

The challenges for this are the time commitment it takes.
