One of the things we hear many care partners discuss is their loved one attempting to (sometimes successfully) leave the house. Often this happens during the night, putting the person at risk and causing enormous stress to the care partners.
The Alzheimer’s Support Network and the Collier County Sheriff’s Office have partnered to bring an enhanced version of the Wanderer’s Identification Program to collier
county for those who suffer from memory disorders and have a tendency to wander away.
The program requires an application be completed, a current photograph, the use of an identification bracelet or necklace, and a release signed by the caregiver.
Participating in the Wanderer’s Identification Program will enable your loved one to be easily identified and returned home. This program has helped hundreds of families in Collier County and there is no charge.
At The Network, we understand that caring for a loved one with dementia can be a complex and challenging journey. Our goal is to provide you with the resources, support, and information you need to navigate this journey with confidence and compassion.
If you would like to learn more about us and the services we offer, give us a call. We look forward to supporting you and your family.
