The retailer already has a number of employees who have become Dementia Champions which enables them to hold the information sessions.

A number of other mobility dealers have been making the most of Dementia Action Week, with Snowdrop Independent Living in Penarth, near Cardiff, joining a campaign led by a local Dementia Friendly Steering Group and newspaper.
