Alzheimer’s assistance initiative

An Alzheimer’s assistance initiative has been developed by the Grantham Police Department to assist families and caregivers of Grantham residents who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, as well as elderly individuals who tend to wander or become lost. The intent of this initiative is to have a photo of the person with Alzheimer’s along with current information, so officers will have easy access to the information should the person become lost.

By contacting the Grantham Police Department and completing a simple form, the information is entered into the computer system so they are able to rapidly respond should the need arise. The form provides all necessary information and would help officers easily identify the missing person. It is necessary to provide a recent photograph to assist in search efforts. If such a photograph is not readily available, one can be taken by the police. The photograph can instantly be sent to all the patrol cruisers’ computers. In addition to the computer information, a poster will be generated and copies given to all emergency contact people listed.

The form with additional information can be picked up at the Grantham Police Department in the Grantham Town Hall.
