It is very important that individuals with intellectual disabilities including seniors with Alzheimer’s/dementia who are ambulatory and can roam or wander. There are many instances where vulnerable adults get confused or lost and end up putting themselves in very stressful and dangerous situations where they attempt to cross busy traffic or bodies of water, etc. without appreciating the danger.
