Alzheimer's disease destroys brain cells responsible for memory, thinking, and behavior. As a result, people living with Alzheimer's or a related disorder may become disoriented and lost, even in their own neighborhood or places that are familiar to them, known as wandering. In fact, More than 60 percent of those with Alzheimer's or another form of dementia will wander, and if a person is not found within 24 hours, up to half of individuals who wander will suffer serious injury or death. Learn steps caregivers can take to reduce the risk of wandering by visiting the Alzheimer's Association's website, ALZ.org.
