Why the system is needed
Why the Safe Return Home system
Peace of mind and safety are important
concerns for all carers. The Safe Return Home program, developed by
Applied Age Care Solutions
(AACS), aims to help support families and carers by
providing an efficient, secure, and up to date professional internet
database service to facilitate the speedy recovery of lost or
disorientated ’at risk’ people.
To gain some appreciation for the extent of
this problem, it is estimated that up to 25% of all people with
memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease are at risk of becoming lost or
disorientated (Wandering and
Dementia. Report to the Health Department of Victoria, Australia 1998).
The Safe Return Home system can be used by interested parties to help identify and locate missing people with memory loss, confusion and/or disorientation.
