Book Description

Each year there are an estimated 125,000 people with Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia who leave the safety of their homes and families, unable to find their way back. Because families may find it difficult to believe anything so terrible could happen to them, they often do not prepare for it. Wandering is the skeleton in the Alzheimer's closet, the lurking danger and topic that is never discussed- until it is too late. In workbook form, In Search of the Alzheimer's Wanderer outlines steps that families can take to find their loved ones if they are one day discovered missing. This book is an invaluable tool providing answers that could save lives
