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?

WOPF itself does not deliver services. We are primarily an advocacy organisation of behalf of older people and consequently our focus will be on promoting awareness of dementia activities among our members and partners, and providing appropriate support to them to deliver their actions.

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

No major obstacles 

2. Actions

  • Survey of members and partners

    We will survey members and partners to identify which have dementia action plans and which do not. This will be an annual survey.
