Finding Your Way® helps people living with dementia, their families, caregivers and communities to recognize the risk of going missing, be prepared for incidents of going missing, and ensure that people with dementia can live safely in the community.
60 percent of people with dementia-related memory problems become lost at some point. Below, we outline the ways Finding Your Way can help.
Important: If you know someone with dementia who has gone missing, please call 911 immediately.
Would you know what to do if you encountered someone in public who was lost or confused? Take our quiz to see if you would know how to help.
Knowing the risks is important, but people with dementia and their families can still live well in the community. If you have dementia, or are caring for a person with dementia, Finding Your Way has information and resources to help you be prepared and stay safe.
We all have a responsibility to help people with dementia to live safely in the community.
Finding Your Way offers important educational resources to help you know what to do if you encounter someone that is lost or confused. If you work with the public, especially with seniors or missing persons, knowing how to make our communities safe for people with dementia is especially important.
