The search came to an end, when they found Carol Gardner in the apartment adjacent to the one she lives.

Metropolitan Police authorities appreciated everyone who volunteered in the search and said, "Gardner is safe and currently receiving medical treatment".

Dementia is a symptom, not a disease which is common among older adults. People with dementia suffer from memory loss and become unaware of time and place. A compassionate society will alleviate the existence of the affected individuals and ensure that they lead safer lives.
