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?
Barnet Clinical Commissioning Group (BCCG) is committed to supporting people with dementia to live a full and active life, enabling them to live at home for longer and ensuring that carers are empowered and supported in their daily lives. The BCCG, together with Barnet Council,(LBB) commission dementia support services focusing on early and timely diagnosis, improving information and supporting people with dementia and their carers in the early stages.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
It is estimated that there are over 4,300 people with dementia living in Barnet and by 2021 this figure is expected to increase by 24%. Dementia presents a significant health and social care challenge to the borough.
