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 offer all our patients all available treatment options so that they can make informed decisions.

We offer patient centred care.

We support patients to live pain and dental disease free.

We have patient information leaflets and provide written treatment plans.

We collect patient feedback and act upon reasonable suggestions.

We offer a valued service to the local community.

Should there be an oppurtunity to contribute towards research we would be happy to participate. 

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

We understand that as patients with Dementia move towards later stages we may have to refer onto specialist services.
