Keeping Seniors with Dementia Safe
Ontario is helping families and caregivers in Markham-Stouffville - and in communities across the province - recognize the risks of dementia, be prepared for incidents, and better ensure that seniors can live safely in their communities.

About 125,000 seniors in our province living with dementia are at risk of wandering and going missing each year. That is why, on September 18th, Ontario announced it is putting safety first by providing nearly $600,000 to the Alzheimer Society of Ontario to deliver the Finding Your Way program.

Finding Your Way is a multicultural wandering prevention program that provides practical tools and advice for individuals, caregivers and the community to recognize and reduce the risk of someone with dementia wandering and going missing, while supporting a quick, safe return should an incident occur.

This new funding will help to locate missing seniors living with dementia by working with police to promote Finding Your Way program resources in their communities, and by delivering seminars for individuals, caregivers and front-line officers that educate and promote awareness.
