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?

First and foremost getting to know the individual as a person and working with them on a daily basis as appropriately as possible. By engaging them directly in their care, by involving loved ones that have known them most of their lives.

 

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

The necessary resources to enable, accessing other sources of support

The ongoing changing needs of the individuals, staff training, involving other professionals and support groups

Regular reviews of individuals needs addressing them accordingly
