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 offerall available treatment options to all patients.  We offer all patients individually tailored treatments specific to their needs. We help patients to live pain and dental disease free. Leaflets are provided with a plethora or written information to all our patients. We value and act upon reasonabe feedback. We offer a valued service to our local community. Shold there be an oppourtunity towards further research we wuld be more than happy to liase on this matter. 

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

Time pressures form the UDA system with an ever increasing geriatric population means that the time we need to devote to such patients can be difficult to achienve and sometimes need to utilise the referral pathway where needed.
