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?

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

 The challenges for providing the signage will be:

 a)    Funding

b)    Sourcing the appropriate signs required

 We will overcome the above challenges by using available funding to improve services for patients and liaise with Dementia Friends around suitable signage.
