Caregiver Nightmare Scenario: Missing Person With Alzheimer’s

One snowflake fallsMissing man with Alzheimer’s found dead. Oh how I hate to read these kinds of headlines, but unfortunately this is usually the way things turn out when someone suffering from dementia wanders off, especially in the winter. I had been following this sad Alzheimer’s disappearance since it happened so close to me in Peoria, and I was really praying for the best. My condolences to all those grieving the loss of John Garrett. This story shows just how difficult it is to be a caregiver for someone with dementia, and how you really can’t let your guard down for one minute unfortunately.
