As a caregiver, you will face a numerous challenges with the progress of dementia in your loved one. One of them is the habit of wandering. What this means is that as a person’s dementia progresses, they slowly lose the familiarity they have with their surroundings and become unable to recognize people. As such, you can have situations where a loved one may decide to go for a walk alone, but not be able to find their way back. To put it simply, they get lost, even in a setting that is supposed to be familiar to them.
