Wandering is a significant issue for people living with Alzheimer's disease and their loved ones.  According to the Alzheimer's Association, three out of five people with Alzheimer's disease will wander.  If not found within 24 hours, up to half of the individuals who wander will suffer serious injury or death.  Christine Shaw of Home Instead Senior Care leads this informative session that will help you:

  • Identify potential signs and triggers of wandering;
  • Understand why individuals with Alzheimer's disease or other dementias might wander;
  • Identify ways to help prepare the home to prevent wandering; and,
  • Learn what to do if a person with Alzheimer's goes missing.
