60% of people living with Alzheimer's Disease wander
70% will wander repeatedly
Watch this video from a former law enforcement officer who lived through a 22 year journey through Alzheimer's with his wife who wandered repeatedly. http://video.nytimes.com/video/2010/05/04/us/1247467677831/lessons-from-the-lost.html
Don’t be caught in a situation where you realize that someone with Alzheimer’s has wandered off and you don’t have any idea where they are.
