Wandering is a common problem associated with Dementia, Alzheimer’s, and Autism. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, 60% of people with dementia will wander at some point while a study by the Interactive Autism Network found that 49% of children with autism will engage in wandering behavior. While the clear majority of these individuals are recovered, wandering cases can end in tragedy.
