Never assume wandering isn't an issue
Assuming that wandering is a lesser problem when at home is a huge mistake for any caregiver. It is easy for a patient to leave a place unnoticed. Plus, the disorientation and the confusion associated with the diseases can make someone get lost in a just a matter of few minutes.
One of the safest things an individual can do is to provide the patient with a tracking device that can be accessed by any immediate family members. There are numerous devices available on the market nowadays, and they tend to be the most convenient way of locating a patient and keeping him/her safe from any harm. Furthermore, there are also agencies and support groups that are ready to help in case of a lost loved one with Alzheimer’s disease.
