Professionals and family caregivers need to know that there are preventive measures available to create safer environments that maximize autonomy while minimizing risk for people with dementia in their care. Authors Silverstein, Flaherty, and Tobin focus on specific responses to wandering behavior, and describe ways to create a safe environment in the home, community, and care facility. Written in a clear and accessible style, this book draws attention to a life-threatening problem facing an estimated two to four million Americans.
