YES! I am in Wisconsin and have worked in nursing homes and now work at a day services center (day care-like). I wish this was adopted as the norm!

This would be perfect for my Dad, he is a 'wanderer' , so he could wander safely. This really is the way forward,

It is a place where we separate out the wheat from the chaffe, the important articles & videos from each week’s river of news. With a new post on Alzheimer’s or dementia appearing on the internet every 7 minutes, the site’s focus on the best information has been a help to many over the past 15 years. Thanks to our many subscribers for your supportive feedback.

The site is dedicated to all those preserving the dignity of the community of people living with dementia.
