Dementia Friendly Southampton (Southampton DAA)

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 will raise our own awareness of dementia to ensure that our customers who may be affected by the condition feel supported and able to keep visiting us.

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

We may struggle to find time to become Dementia Friends but can use the online video version of the session to overcome this.
