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 available treatment options so that patients can make an informed decision. We offer patient centred care. We support patients to live pain and dental disease free. We have patient information leaflets available and give written treatment plans. We value patients opinions and act upon reasonable patient feedback. We offer a valuable service to the local community. Should there be an opportunity to contribute to research we would be happy to contribute.

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

We understand that the population is living longer, patients are keeping their teeth but in the future the cases of Dementia will increase. As patients move towards later stages of Dementia we have to refer patients onto specialised services.
