Wandering is a significant issue for people living with Alzheimer’s disease and their loved ones. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, three of five people with Alzheimer’s disease will wander. If not found within 24 hours, up to half of individuals who wander will suffer serious injury or death. Register for this web seminar to learn how Home Instead Senior Care is extending its support to this important area of Alzheimer’s education through a new web service designed to help family caregivers locate individuals with a dementia illness who become lost.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Get the facts about the risks of wandering and what families need to know;
  • Identify the triggers for wandering; and,
  • Learn more about potentially life-saving solutions.
