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 think it would be useful to be a  DAA member in order to interact with other members and liase about their experiences with dementia. We already work closely with a lot of clients within our community living with dementia. We can find out whats important to them by talking to our clients and their families and acting on their feedback.

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

People living with dementia are sometimes reluctant to accept help and may not always actively seek the help that it available to them.
