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?

Key role in delivering care to those living with and those caring for those with dementia. Contact through GP, Receptionists, Nurses etc.
