Living Safely With Dementia

If you or a person you are caring for has dementia, these resources will help to inform, educate and ensure that you and your caregiving team are prepared in case something happens. In this section we offer an ID Kit, an Incident Response Checklist, and a Post-Incident Checklist – tools that are important to have on hand in case a person with dementia goes missing. We also offer simple tipsheets for both people with dementia and individuals supporting a person with dementia – these documents are easy to read and summarize a few key points that are important to keep in mind.
