Wandering

Wandering can put an individual's safety in jeopardy. More than 60 percent of those with dementia will wander, and if a person is not found within 24 hours, up to half of individuals who wander will suffer serious injury or death.

Be aware of the risk factors for wandering, and enroll in the MedicAlert + Alzheimer's Association Safe Return®, a nationwide identification program designed to assist in the return of those who wander and become lost, or use Comfort Zone® to try and prevent wandering.

 

Comfort Zone®

Comfort Zone® is a comprehensive web-based location management service. Families can remotely monitor a person with Alzheimer’s by receiving automated alerts throughout the day and night when a person has travelled beyond a preset zone.  Click here to learn more.

Comfort Zone is intended to provide freedom and independence to those living with Alzheimer's, while offering protection against getting lost. Comfort Zone is the first location management system designed specifically with people with Alzheimer's in mind.

If you have any questions, please contact HELPLINE at 800-272-3900. 

 

 

 

Medic Alert® + Alzheimer's Association Safe Return® Identification Program

 The Alzheimer's Association, Southeast Florida Chapter is working to save lives through its Medic Alert® + Alzheimer's Association Safe Return® Program.  This program assists in the safe return of individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia who wander from safety into harm’s way.  

Each registrant will be provided with an identification bracelet and 24-hour support service.  If the registered person becomes lost, the caregiver calls the national 1-800 number to activate an effective local search and rescue plan that involves the local authorities, the local Alzheimer’s Association chapter, the local press and the national Association.  An electronic flier with a photo is generated within minutes, and contact with the caregiver is constant. Click here for more details.

Please register your loved one today for the Safe Return® Program.  If you have any questions, please contact HELPLINE at 800-272-3900.
