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?

To have a place where carers and their cared for feel safe, not isolated and have a network of support

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

The main challenge would be the loss of venue and car parking facilities.  The venue has 2 areas where carers can be separated from their cared for for a few hours to give respite and a chance to speak freely

2. Actions
