By providing care and support to our customers living with dementia, in order for them to remain part of our local community.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Ensuring that as many Partners as possible in our store attend a Dementia Friends session in order to provide the support during our opening hours.
