Learn more about dementia, when the Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Community Roadshow comes to the Milton Keynes Argos store in Grafton Gate West on Friday (August 12).

The event will run from 11am-4pm, and is designed to increase local awareness and understanding of the condition.

Only 45 per cent of people living with dementia in Milton Keynes have had a diagnosis; the roadshow will offer free information and advice to anyone with queries about the condition, as well as helping to promote the benefits of an early diagnosis.

Amy Whidburn, head of corporate responsibility for the Home Retail Group, said: “We’re proud to host the Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Community Roadshow and offer our customers the opportunity to talk about their concerns with an expert.”
