    I am glad this man was found safe and has returned to his family. Families can help prevent this kind of problem by buying shoes with GPS in them. These are made specifically for people with dementia so that family can quickly locate them.

    Lil, good information thank you for that! We just lost our sister-in-law three weeks ago to dementia. A horrific illness and any help you can find is essential.

    This is good news! I am especially glad because of the rude and insensitive comment left on the previous article. This shows that not everyone in FF looks alike, doofus. Anyway... glad he's back with his family.
