Safe Return Card
People with Alzheimer's or a related disease are no different than anyone else. They want to be able to move about freely and live as independently as possible. Changes in the brain can lead to a person with the disease becoming confused in unfamiliar places and forgetting the way to get home safely.
Registering yourself or the person you are caring for with this, would aid in giving you the peace of mind that this person can continue living as independently and for as long as possible.
If the time comes when becoming lost is a worry, you will have the comfort of knowing that help is at hand. Planning ahead now can make it easier to manage a difficult situation later.
The Safe Return Card is an identification card to protect and help persons with dementia. The card provides a source of identification when they are lost and gives caregivers a sense of security and ease of mind when person with dementia is unaccompanied outside of their home.
