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?

The Tamworth Branch has 5 Dementia Champions and will shortly start to run dementia friends sessions for all 100 partners .  It is important for our customers living with dementia should feel happy and relaxed when shopping with us. We all have a part to play in making this so.

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

Time restraints and attendance when running dementia information sessions to everyone in branch.  

Continued support from Partners. 

2. Actions
