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 aim to provide the higest standards of healthcare and make sure our services are accessible for people living with dementia and carers in the local area.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Organise for a Dementia Champion to deliver a Dementia Friends session to practice staff to help our staff further understand the complexities of dementia and the importance of person-centered approaches.
