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?

Why : So that more people are aware of the condition, recognise the signs and learn how to handle difficult situations.

Establish what is important – talk and listen to people.

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

Getting people to agree to attend a meeting around their work timetable.

Putting what they learn into practice.
