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?

We have many patients with a diagnosis of dementia or who are caring for someone with dementia.  It is important that these patients and their carers get the best care and quality of life they can and we want to do everything we can to support them.

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

Feedback from the DAA Coordinator and wider group around the implementation of the action plan is key.

2. Actions

  • Use Technology To Raise Awareness

    Using websites and electronic display screens to promote awareness of dementia, listing symptoms and inviting patients to attend for screening to establish early diagnosis if they are worried about their memory.
