I hope they find her. Most who wander off who are not found within a few hours are not found safe.

Sounds like a lawsuit coming against the retirement home. Stupid employees!

why not put gps bracelets on the Alzheimer suffers, we could just cut the county commissioners salary ten percent that would easily cover the cost.

I'm sure she's dead by now. Maybe they should only look in ditches and alleys

OK, I'm just curious why she was seen walking away and no one stopped her.

I am commenting here on the cat mutilation story as the Sad Sentinel did not leave a comment section attached to that story. Unlike a good paper, such as the Herald, they did not even post a picture of the plick who did it. Quite a contrast as they had huge stories every day regarding the incidents. Right up until the kid was caught. Now they peter out. Go figure.

No, she is not 106 years old. What would lead you to believe she is gay? Bigot.

I just wanted to let everyone know I am safe and aware of my surroundings.

Margate Facility discontinued the bingo events, stopped giving me my nightly scotch, and forced us unwillingly to toss around a big inflatable beach ball while a strange looking man in the corner played Jimmy Buffet tunes.

So yes I walked away. Wouldn't you?

Now if only I could remember who I am...

yeah, that's what i was thinking ...

sure doesn't speak well for this facility that she's there because she has Alzheimers and their level of care allows her to roam off.

she's very lucky to be alive and safe. unfortunately she can't even realize how lucky.
