How to Stop Wandering in Elderly with Dementia?

A very interesting perspective on how to prevent wandering. People with dementia are known to wander off and get lost, hurt and even killed. The normal response is that of “prevention.” Make it harder for the person suffering from Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia to “get out.” Hang up stop signs, mount alarms on doors and place GPS devices on them.
