How can you prevent your elderly loved ones from ending up on the missing persons report?
The statistics are harsh. Every year over thirty thousand people with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia are reported missing.Â Many are found within 24 hours – but for those still missing after 24 hours, the chances of survival fall to 46%.
If you are caring for a loved one with a cognitive disorder, there is always a chance that he or she may wander away. Even if they’ve never done so before. That’s why we recommend a GPS tracking device that can help you stop wandering before it goes to far.
Over 60% of Alzheimer’s victims will wander off.Â That’s why we recommend that you install an alarm in the home – to stop the wanderer before they get lost on the streets.
