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?

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

Ensuring that we are providing something useful and that we are able to support people with dementia who come to our sites in a way that will be beneficial.  Also getting everyone trained as dementia friends with the constraints we have in place.
