Seventy three year old missing Savannah woman found safe by Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police (SCMP). Carol Gardner, a patient with dementia and multiple sclerosis, lost her way back home after a walk and never returned.
SCMP along with Chatham County Emergency Management Agency were on the look-out for Gardner.
The search came to an end, when they found Carol Gardner in the apartment adjacent to the one she lives.
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.
