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?

1. Using musical sound and our unique approach and equipment to provide stimulating mental exercise to those living with dementia

2. Work with the DAA to monitor the progress and affects of this work

3. Attending the dementia friends session

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

We wish to utilise and apply our approaches specifically to those living with Dementia. We are not specialists in this field so will require some support from the people working and supporting in the local area. This has already commenced with the help and support of Sarah Williams-Martin. The second phase will be to monitor and track the (hopefully) positive outcomes of our interventions.
