The Senior Resource Alliance – Area Agency on Aging of Central Florida, Inc. will utilize grant funds to establish and operate a holistic, locally based, proactive program to locate or prevent the wandering of individuals with forms of dementia such as alzheimer’s disease or developmental disabilities such as autism, who due to their condition, wander from safe environments. The proposed Bringing the Lost Home Project will assist local emergency personnel in improving the search performance for locating missing residents, especially these populations that have a high propensity to wander. The Bringing the Lost Home Project utilizes non-restrictive interventions in preparing individuals and families, and in responding to individuals who have wandered from safe environments.
