“Someday there will be a cure for Alzheimer’s Disease. Until that day, continue with your dementia education. They deserve your best!”
Sandra Stimson NCCDP CEO


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.

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.
