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.
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.
