Risk of Elders Wandering at Home
Do you know an elder who lives at home that has cognitive impairment and wanders? If so, you are likely concerned for their safety. If they do not have someone with them at all times they should either move to a Memory Support facility or have 24/7 care at home. If they do stay at home with care here’s a tip to make it easier on the Caregiver. Use a battery operated door alarm on all doors so the Caregiver is aware of when they are trying to leave the house.
