DENNIS – The Dennis Police Department is coordinating with Yarmouth and the Town of Duxbury to expand a program designed to reunite dementia patients with loved ones if the patient wanders away from a safe environment.
Dennis Police Victim Services Coordinator Deborah Thompson says the program is good protection.
“You just never know when your loved one will wander. It’s particularly difficult for our summer residents who may not register with us since they aren’t here forever.”
Registration in the Silver Alert Program is as easy as going to police headquarters with a picture of the afflicted loved one.
