Working together to tackle Dementia


Kirti DAA pi

Mednet are proud to be associated with the Dementia Action Alliance (DAA), a social movement of thousands of member organisations. These organisations are committed to delivering the seven outcomes in the National Dementia Declaration, in order to create a common vision of a better world for people with dementia and their carers.

2015 will hopefully prove to be another important year for Mednet, as we endeavour to improve the quality of life for people living with dementia and their carers. Our pipeline activities for 2015 have been listed in the DAA annual report which is available to view using the link below:

We will continue to develop educational resources for those affected by dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). Our plan also includes developing e-learning applications to train healthcare professionals (HCPs) to recognise DLB symptoms in line with the needs of an ageing population.

In addition to this, we are aiming to take the Butterfly Scheme’s evaluative mechanism for hospital staff to the next level. The scheme supports patients living with dementia, and we are developing this and the evaluative mechanism with an integrated approach encompassing more stakeholders.

Finally, Mednet are developing and enhancing various elements of the existing patient experience programme, by providing personalised care, adherence support and education to the patients and carers of those affected by Alzheimer’s disease (AD).
