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?

We would like to make a difference to those living with dementia and their carers. By making our facilities’ dementia friendly we hope to be more welcoming.

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

Making sure all staff get the Dementia Friends training. We have a lot of lifeguards / sports coaches who are casual.
