Ontario expands protection for people with dementia who may go missing

The Alzheimer Society of Ontario, in partnership with the Government of Ontario, is expanding the groundbreaking Finding Your Way TM program, a multicultural safety awareness initiative for people with dementia who go missing or become lost.

The program will help prevent people with dementia from “wandering” and going missing, and help caregivers and other family members prepare for such incidents, if they occur. 
The program has added resources in ItalianPortuguese and Spanish  to reach more Ontarians whose first language may not be English or French. Other languages already available across the province are EnglishFrenchCantoneseMandarin and Punjabi.
