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?

If conventional gyms and health clubs give you a phobia, then Gymophobics is the place for you.

Members feel very comfortable at Gymophobics; There are no mirrors, no pictures of the 'ideal' body and no distracting TV screens or blaring dance tunes. The women-only concept is also very appealing, as is the amount of personal attention that our staff offer each and every member.

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