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 follow the NICE guidelines for caring for our patients with Dementia and always try and follow an individualized plan of care to fit with each patients needs.
We look after a local Nursing home with a high prevalence of Dementia and work closely with 'Old Peoples Mental Health'.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Lack of support, and long waits to see 'Old Peoples Mental Health Team'.
