Missing Alzheimer's Disease Patient Assistance Program

This program provides funds for projects that aid in the protection and location of missing persons living with Alzheimer?s disease and related dementias and other missing elderly individuals.

It is currently estimated that more than 5 million people in the United States alone are living with
Alzheimer?s disease or some form of dementia.

Over 60 percent (nearly 3.1 million individuals) of those with dementia are at risk of wandering at some point.

More than 50 percent of those who wander become lost and separated from their loved ones or caregivers.

Law enforcement agencies often expend resources searching for missing persons with Alzheimer?s disease, and if not found quickly, they are at high risk of serious injury or even death.

In addition, law enforcement officers may not be trained or equipped to handle the special needs of those with Alzheimer?s, once they are found.

Agency - Department of Justice

The Department of Justice enforces the law and defends the interest of the United States, ensuring public safety against threats foreign and domestic; providing Federal leadership in preventing and controlling crime; seeking just punishment for those guilty of unlawful pursuits; and ensuring fair and impartial administration of justice for all Americans.
