Managing Risks Of Disappearance In Persons Living With Dementia


The Managing Risks of Disappearance in Persons Living with Dementia (MRDPD) project builds capacities, partnerships and coordination of search and rescue (SAR) personnel, first responders, and communities to manage risks of going missing among persons living with dementia. With partners, we will implement and evaluate:

  1. Dementia Friendly Resources for First Responders in 6 provinces beyond Ontario, which include two Indigenous communities
  2. Toolkits for communities
  3. A guideline for return home interviews to prevent missing incidents
  4. Data collection approaches to monitor this issue
