Got the PHPD Nixle alert. We called PHPD, hubby and I both think we saw the gentleman, or someone who certainly looked like him; walking hunched over and w limp this afternoon in Walnut Creek, walking westbound along Olympic between North Main and California (near Cheesecake Factory),.

Oh no! nothing worse than a code green elopement! I worked for a senior care community and we always had to on our toes. I hope they find him soon! how long has he been missing? I know there is the Safeway on the corner and several little shops so hopefully he will be found wandering around….and soon!

Dementia at 63, that is terrifying. Sounds like he was found though…

what noone is going lambast these adult children taking care of their elderly parents and not watching them every second?
But neglient parents who let their children do childrenly things and get hurt, get tarred and feathers?

1911 oak park is a convalescent home I believe. So it’s the “nurses” fault

Is anyone else disturbed by all of the recent dementia patients who have gone ‘missing’ recently in the area? It seems like every few days I hear about another one. Fortunately they are all found safe. Just seems like we didn’t use to hear about them very often until recently…..

A 63 year old doesn’t get dementia, so it most likely was a typo. Maybe 73 or 83?

1911 Oak Park is the Windsor Rosewood Care Center:

On their website, they boast:

“Wanderguard™ Security System”

My thought, possibly dementia is increasing at earlier ages for the current population. Not sure what causes dementia, (environmental or hereditary), but if its environmental, we may all find ourselves dealing with this issue.

I read somewhere it’s related to the use and absorbtion in the body/brain of aluminium.
Everything frm contrails to soda cans, food trays, even anti-persperant.
We (baby boomers and sooner) are going to get dementia, Alhemizers, and other brain/memory age related illnesses like never before.
