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 want to create a social space in town designed for people living with dementia to come and visit. This will be a cafe that can be used by all but will be designed to be dementia-friendly.

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

  • Ensuring the design and layout of fit for purpose
  • Formation of a committee to advise and support
  • Finding expert advisers to assist with planning and design

2. Actions

  • Dementia/Disability friendly tea room

    We have a property in Leamington that we are going to transform into a dementia-friendly tea room.
