Carers role in the search for missing people living with dementia (by Dr. Karen Shalev-Greene, Prof. Charlotte Clarke, Prof. Francis Pakes, Lucy Holmes)

Dementia is a word used to describe a group of symptoms including memory loss, confusion, mood changes and difficulty with day-to-day tasks. Dementia is progressive, which means the symptoms will gradually get worse. The aim of this presentation is to explore patterns of reporting missing episodes to the police by those who care for people living with dementia and to critically assess the decisions, search patterns and strategies by carers of people who live with dementia when someone with dementia goes missing. This is a result of a study from 2014-2015 involving 16 interviews with carers of people living with dementia in England.
