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 would like to make our children more aware of Dementia and its devastating effects.  We would like to make our children a Dementia Friendly Generation.

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

  • Children’s understanding of the illness
  • Emotional wellbeing of those who have been effected 
  • Communication with wider community

2. Actions
