SCRAM Presentation - Topic - A Caregiver's Guide to Wandering

Thursday, April 26, 2018

Are you a caregiver? Or do you know someone else who is a caregiver? If so, we have created a comprehensive guide to help caregiver’s keep their loved one at home for as long as possible. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, more than 60% of people who have dementia may wander, become disoriented, and get lost. If not found within 24 hours, up to half of those lost will suffer serious injury or even death. Finding them quickly is critical. The Caregiver’s Guide to Wandering was created so you will have quick and easy access to your loved one’s identification information in case they wander. You will be able to collect their fingerprints, DNA, and medical information that the police will need to help identify your loved one in case of an emergency.
