Wandering from Dementia

Wandering From Dementia

It can be terrifying when a loved one first starts wandering from Dementia. They might just go for a walk, not come for hours, and then be found even later still after a search. Typically this can involve family members, neighbours or friends, and frequently the police too.

wandering from dementiaWandering from Dementia is unfortunately a situation that a lot of people aren't particularly aware or never experience. So when it happens to a parent for example whose memory has been taken for granted for so many years, it can be quite an unexpected shock. It can seem unimaginable, bringing sudden anxieties of wandering, what else they might do or forget, and of course planning and strategising for various possibilities.

    Awareness of Dementia Wanders Can Save Lives

    Also of course, the public often aren't aware enough to spot a potentially vulnerable person who might have wandered from dementia to check on them - but lives have been saved when they do.

    One customer first got in touch after a taxi driver had spotted his father wandering from dementia, out alone at night, and had the good sense to check on him. He was able to find his address on him, and took him home for free - much to the surprise and absolute delight of the family who had been out searching. The elderly gentlemen had recently been diagnosed with Dementia, was under-dressed and cold - a little longer and he could have easily collapsed.

    There are already over 850,000 people diagnosed with a form of Dementia in the UK, two-thirds of which will wander at least once. If not found within 24 hours, up to half can suffer serious injury or death.

    Knowing when someone has wandered from Dementia, as soon as possible, is essential. It can save lives, save time, offer peace of mind and reassurance, and ultimately support a loved one's continued freedom to walk.
