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 give all of our patients available treatment options. We offer patient centred care. We help our patients live pain and dental disease free. We have patient leaflets available and give patients a written treatment plan. We listen to patient comments and act upon feedback. We are a valued part of the local community. If the opportunity arises we would be happy to contribute towards research. 

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

Some challenges are that if patients dementia become more advanced we may have to refer the patient on to specialised services. We are aware that the polouation is growing older and more of our patients may develop dementia.
