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?

Consistency of training across Practice staff who work across different shift patterns.
Additional cost of implementing a Dementia Friendly environment.
Identification of those who are providing care for patients with dementia.

What difficulties might you face, and how will you overcome them?
To overcome consistency of training we will hold refresher training sessions for new starters or those who have missed out on previous training.

To overcome additional costs we will apply for funding for signage and approach our patient groups to see whether they would help raise funds and approach local businesses such as retailers who have an interest in the community.

To help identify those who providing care for patients we will ask them to contact reception to understand what help or signposting we can offer.
