According to the Alzheimer’s Association, more than 60% of people who suffer from dementia may wander, become disoriented and get lost as a result of their illness. A Caregiver’s Guide to Wandering is a program that educates caregivers on this one aspect of dementia in order to provide peace of mind and enable dementia sufferers to stay at home longer, more securely and more affordably.
At the heart of A Caregiver’s Guide to Wandering is a 12-page book that helps families create an action plan to protect their loved one from leaving without warning. A personal data section holds a photo, physical description, fingerprints, DNA, medical information and emergency phone numbers that can be stored on a smartphone for immediate access.
