Caregiver Dealing with Dementia Wandering Issues

Although, wandering is a major concern for a caregiver, wandering requires addressing only if it presents safety issues or is causing distress. Using an identification bracelet can be helpful – see the Alzheimer’s Association website.

Wandering in a person with dementia can be:

• Coping with stress

• Making sense of their environment

• Seeking something or someone recognizable

• Wanting to go their childhood “home.”
