Highlighting unsafe mobility for people with dementia who may leave their place of care
Thought-provoking films, aimed at healthcare professionals, emergency services, carers and health and social care staff, to raise awareness of the issues faced by a person with dementia who may wander from their care setting including their own home.
The films have an associated workbook and teaching slides which are available to download from the associated documents below.
All the materials provide reflective learning on wandering (also recognised as walking) as behaviour that can become a risk for those with dementia both pre and post formal diagnosis. We become more aware about how it feels to be a person with dementia, and how vital it is to get professionals and relatives on board to help the person with dementia cope.
It raises reflective learning to improve caring, compassion and good communication should the person become a Missing Person and the appropriate actions of emergency services, health professionals and families.
