Temporary Shelters for Wandering Adults

Taxonomy Code: BH-1800.1500-850

Programs that provide temporary shelter in a supervised setting for memory-impaired adults (many of them with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of senility or dementia) who have wandered away from their homes or group living environments and whose caregivers cannot be immediately identified or contacted. Included are permanent facilities that specialize in helping this population and programs, sometimes provided by law enforcement, that coordinate placement of adult wanderers in facilities such as behavioral centers and hospitals that have agreed to be called at any time and accept wanderers until they can be identified and returned to their homes.
