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?

Working with other organisations within the locality, and our own church community, to ensure that we provide a welcoming and supportive environment for people with dementia and their carers. Ensuring our activities (where appropriate) better meet the needs of people with dementia and their carers is something we are working on.

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

Our premises are a mix of Victorian and 1960s vintages so making them friendly for people living with dementia is a challenge we are seeking to meet within the constraints of finance and structure. Similarly, ensuring our activities (where appropriate) better meet the needs of people with dementia and their carers is something will require continued training.
