Dementia Continues to Rise
According to the Alzheimer Society of Canada, there are an estimated 564,000 Canadians living with dementia and 25,000 new cases diagnosed every year. Canada’s health-care system is ill-equipped to deal with the staggering costs and suitable care¹.
In conclusion, the majority of individuals suffering with dementia or Alzheimer’s are considered a high risk for wandering often leading to severe consequences. Not to mention, 3/5 people living with dementia will wander, more than half of those will be injured if not found within 24 hours. SafeTracks offers freedom and independence to the elderly as well as provide their family members reassurance in knowing their loved ones are safe.
