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?

Binfield Surgery have joined the Dementia Action Alliance so that staff have a better understanding of Dementia and are aware how to support patients and their carers who have a diagnosis of dementia.

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

The action plan will be reviewed in the monthly team meetings to ensure that actions are up to date and relevant.

  • Dementia Friendly Environmental Review

    In association with people with dementia and their carers we will organise a walkabout at the surgery to review the internal environment and implement any suggestions made. 

    We will ask our own patients who have a diagnosis of dementia if they would like to be involved in the walkabout and suggest any changes to be made.
