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 will continue to provide high quality health services for people with dementia and their carers in the local area.

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