This breaks my heart; I work in a skilled living facility and I work with all Dementia Residents. We have so many that try to get out and they where wonder guards to protect them. They need to find her fast the harsh cold is coming this afternoon.

Thank God Joyce has been found and without injury! May God also comfort her daughter at this time of the terror and guilt she must have felt. I am a nurse that has cared for dementia clients for many years. This tramatic incident is unfortunately another example of how those caring for an Alzheimer's victum must learn all they can about the disease; use this information to get the items and incorporate the techniques to help keep your loved one safe. Although nothing is 100% effective, you can decrease the chances of harm to the loved one and gain more confidence in your caregiving role. Today's incident ended well; some have not been so lucky.
Thanks to all that lead the search to find Joyce!
