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 treat a lot of patients with dementia and would like to help to create a better environment to carry out dental treatment for people living with dementia.

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

The challenges to delivering outcomes include making sure we have the appropriate amount of time to meet the needs of each patient with dementia, making sure our practice environment can make all patients feel at ease and keeping up with the best communication between patients, staff and carers.

2. Actions

  • We will continue to treat all patients with dignity and respect. We have become aware of the difficulties people with dementia through the dementia friends campaigns and we have now completed a dementia friendly audit.

    We have completed our audit and have already begun to make changes through the practice in order to become more dementia friendly.
