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 have been working on a number of projects for several years now building our relationships with people with dementia and their families.  This will continue.
  • Continue consulting and having a dialogue with people living with dementia on all projects that may directly or indirectly relate to them

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

  • Keeping it at the top of our agenda - We are appointing an expert with experience to help us remain focused.
