Hopefully they will find this gentleman very soon, safe and well. On the local news last week a lady went misssing from her home, thankfully she was found the next morning not far from her home. She had apparently got disorientated and wandered into a open paddock she fell over and was covered by the long grass. She was suffering from hypothermia and a broken arm.The spokesperson from the state emerengcy services, said that, it was quite common to find missing dementia persons close to home. Pray for a good outcome. Taffy.I can't begin to imagine what his family and friends must be going through.
I'm not sure it's always possible to prevent someone with dementia from wandering, Karen.Tender Face said:If this is the first time of 'going missing' I have nothing but sympathy .... if it was known it might happen or could have been prevented .... then I wonder, not only is there anxiety for the missing person but what may possibly have been done by those responsible for him to have avoided the situation arising in the first instance.
Quite! That's why I was making the distinction ( or trying to) about 'first time' it happens and subsequent 'wanders' ......Skye said:I'm not sure it's always possible to prevent someone with dementia from wandering, Karen.
Hi,jenniferpa said:This poor man went missing on the 18th. The problem is, good news doesn't always get reported, although bad news always seems to.
