Dementia is everyone's business. Here in Powys there are estimated to be as many as 2,500 people living with dementia, and that number is set to increase to more than 3,750. Many people with dementia consider shopping to be one of their favourite activities but often no longer feel confident shopping alone as their dementia progresses.
