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 dementia friends employed by the surgery with a dementia champion leading the way.  We are currently providing space for a Alzheimers UK to meet with patients and carers.

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

 

The organisation needs to be accessible to all walks of life.  Often time limiting on telephones and reception staff make it difficult to spend the  time we would like with all patients
