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 theycan make an informed decision.

We offer patient centred treatment.

We help our patients to live pain and dental disease free.

We have patient information leaflets available and give patient written treatment plans.

We collect and value patient feedback and act upon reasonable suggestions.

We offer a valuable service to the local community.

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

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

When patients move onto later stage Dementia we would have to refer them onto specialised services
