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 Ealing Carers Service supports carers of loved ones with dementia to access appropriate peer support, training, health and fitness classes, information and advice services. We aim to be carer-led and host a regular carers forum and consultative events so that servises are user-designed. Our work addresses 6 outcomes directly as we are not currently engaged in research.

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

Carers often find it difficult to find the time, space and energy to care for themselves. Wherever possible we aim to provide respite for events so that a carer is free to engage with services but there can be many barriers to carers accessing services in the community.
