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 a duty of care to all of our patients within the surgery.

We want to continue to diagnose Dementia in a timely way, to avoid families going into Crisis.

 

Prevent well – we continue to promote Healthy living.

Diagnose well – diagnose in a timely manner, include yearly checks and reviews.

Support well – to work with outside agencies that provide extra support.

Living well – to encourage independent living and to be active in the community.

Dying well – to actively encourage early participation in End of life plans and patient centred care planning.

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

 

To get all staff to undertake a Dementia Friends session – due to staff rotation, sickness and time constraints.
