Wandering: A New DVD Explains It All
New DVD Explains Wandering
Given that an estimated 60 percent of individuals with Alzheimer's disease will wander at some point during the progression of the disease, the Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA) has just released a step-by-step educational DVD about wandering.
The newest DVD, called "Wandering...What It Is and What to Do About It," is part of AFA's "Your Time to Care" series and is designed to help family and professional caregivers understand this behavior and take steps to ensure the safety of individuals with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. It is specifically geared to the home setting.
In the 43-minute DVD, experts and family caregivers address the difference between wandering and becoming lost, prevention strategies and measures to take when a crisis occurs. For more information and to purchase the DVD, visit www.alzfdn.org/estore or call toll-free 866.AFA.8484.
