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?
As a GP surgery we want our staff to empower patients, families and carers in decision making regarding health and social care.
We want to ensure that our environment is a dementia friendly place and meets the needs of our patients.
We want to be at the front line of delivering optimised care to dementia patients, which works to remove the diagnosis of dementia defining them as an individual.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Lack of understanding of dementia.
Lack of knowledge in management of challenging patients with dementia Not knowing how to improve the IT system so dementia patient's can be highlighted and their care tailored towards their specific needs Lack of information regarding supporting services in the community
