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 PAFCCG action plan includes the development of services for the mental health needs of both Service personnel and Veterans. It seeks to raise awareness of the need for access to the most appropriate support and to link a wide support network of providers to begin to share expertise.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Challenges include the wide range of third sector partners who may be approached by clients to support such needs, including their link up with the National Health Service mechanisms. Linking and networking these potential partners requires considerable focus.
Many Service personnel make regular geographical moves that impact upon their ability to access care and support and to support their relatives who may have mental health issues.
Raise their own dementia awareness
The group will raise their own awareness of issues linked to dementia, both for suffers and carers.
Discussions linked to mental health
As part of the PAFCCG action plan, detailed discussions linked to mental health will take place with a view to achieving the statements in section 1 (above).
