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?

Treatment options given and recorded so patients can make imformed decions about their treatment. We offer patient centred care.We support patients and follow preventative pathways.We give printed treatment plans and relevant patient leaflets.We collect and act upon reasonable patient feedbackWe offer a valuable service to our patents and community.If there is an opportunity to get involved in research we would be happy to do this.

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

As patients move towards later stage dementia we would have to consider referring on to speccialist services.
