The Alzheimer Society of Sarnia-Lambton is once again partnering with the Sarnia Police Service to help register loved ones living with dementia.
Three out of five people living with dementia will go missing at some point in their dementia journey, which is a serious safety risk. If not found within 24 hours, half of them will have a serious injury or die. Statistics have proven that anyone living with dementia is at risk for going missing.
That is why on
Saturday, February 1, 2020,
the Alzheimer’s Society of Sarnia-Lambton have partnered with the Sarnia Police Service to provide an opportunity for individuals living with dementia to be registered as someone at risk of going missing. Registration will take place between 10am and 2pm at the Sarnia Police Station located at 555 Christina Street North, Sarnia, ON. Refreshments will be provided. Caregivers are asked to bring a current photo of their loved one along proper identification and health information.
Our hope is for those with dementia to live well and safely within our community. Let’s make this another successful “Living Safely with Dementia: Registration Day.”
