Persons with Dementia or a related-disease are no different than anyone else. They want to be able to move about freely and live as independently as possible. Changes in the brain can lead to a person with the disease becoming confused in unfamiliar places and forgetting the way to get home safely.
Registering yourself or the person you are caring for with this service, would aid in giving you the peace of mind that this person can continue living as independently as possible.
The Safe Return Card is an identification card to protect and help persons with dementia. The card provides a source of identification when they are lost, and gives caregivers a sense of security and ease of mind when person with dementia is unaccompanied outside of their home.
Planning ahead now can make it easier to manage a difficult situation later. Please apply for the Safe Return Card now. Various discount schemes are also organised by NCSS for holders of this useful card.
