Alzheimer's
Associaton Safe Return



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.
