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 provide a range of interventions which aim to provide people with access to different types of therapies that support the symptoms of dementia. These interventions aim to support people to manage the difficult feelings and emotions that occur because of the impact of cognitive functioning and attempts to improve self-esteem and self-worth.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Reassuring local communities that the service we provide will have positive results.
Increase Awareness of Care Visions Dementia Therapy Programme
To approach local community organisations to work in partnership allowing maximum visibility of our organisation and the therapies that we provide.
