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?
Electoral Services interacts with residents across the borough in delivering elections and the registration of electors. Electoral registration canvassers are sent to those addresses that have not responded to the household enquiry form and residents visit over 100 polling stations on election day.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Canvassers and polling station staff are casuals.
Increase awareness of dementia amongst staff.
