Preventing Wandering In Loved Ones With Alzheimer's Disease
My husband is 85 and has Alzheimer's disease and I am his primary caregiver. It’s getting more difficult for me as his disease progresses but I want to continue for as long as I can, in order to preserve our money for as long as possible. My biggest issue is that I’m afraid he will get up in the middle of the night, or at a time when I’m not as alert as necessary and wander off. Up to now I’ve been able to manage but we’re having more and more incidents and feel as though I’m running on luck. I have researched GPS tracking systems and am curious what you think of them, and other suggestions you may have. Lorraine G., New York, New York
