For their safety, for your peace of mind
Alzheimer's disease robs 4 million Americans of their ability to recognize
familiar places and faces. Many cannot remember their own names and
addresses. They may become disoriented and lost, in their own neighborhoods
or far from home.
To enable police and private citizens to identify people with Alzheimer's
disease and help them return home, the
ALZHEIMER'S ASSOCIATION created the Safe Return program.
