Wandering and Dementia

Wandering and Dementia

Tuesday, December 12, 2023 @ 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM

This is an in-person class in our Wasilla office.

There will be an online webinar version of this class available statewide on December 11—attend the one that best fits your schedule.

Most of us can relate with wanting to take a walk, wanting to get out and about. People living with dementia are no different. Walking is not the problem in itself – walking can help to relieve stress and boredom and is good exercise. However, for those living with dementia, walking or wandering can put them at risk for injury or getting lost.

Join us to develop an understanding of this common behavior and explore options that support individual autonomy while easing safety concerns.

Free to attend! No registration required.
