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?

The Centre offers a range of information and advice on health, education and legal services which can assist people on their dementia journey.

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

Language is a barrier to people understanding dementia and receiving a diagnosis
