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?

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

Ensuring that training and regular updates are available to all staff – due to staff rotas and working hours this could be difficult to organise.

Considering dementia patients when making any changes – may need to approach a local charity for guidance any changes that can be made.

We are in an old building in need of modernisation therefore the cost and time required to undertake the necessary changes to ensure the surgery is Dementia friendly could be significant.

Time constraints.
