Palm Harbor, Florida (PRWEB) November 05, 2012
Time is of the Essence when individuals with Alzheimer’s and other cognitive disorders wander off or become lost. Statistics show that at least 50% of those with Alzheimer’s will wander, and up to 70% of wanderers will do so repeatedly. Approximately 50% of those who wander away will suffer serious injury or death if not found within 24 hours
National Silver Alert, provider of the National Silver Alert Program, a free, national online registration program for all individuals with cognitive disorders, will be hosting its first on-site registration event on Sunday, November 11, 2012, from 11 AM – 4:00 PM.
Representatives from the National Silver Alert Program will be conducting the on-site registration at Fountains Plaza, 34824 US Highway 19 North, Palm Harbor FL, 34684.
The National Silver Alert Program is a secure, online registration program that allows caregivers to store vital personal, medical, health and caregiver information that can be easily accessed in the event of an emergency.
Neil Arfmann, CEO of National Silver Alert said, “Wandering is the major reason for missing person alerts, particularly in persons with cognitive disorders. Having this information available to law enforcement officers, hospitals and emergency responders minimizes the time in which a person is missing and reduces the potential health risks. The goal is to register as many of these people in the event they become lost or missing. This program speaks for them in the event they cannot.”
National Silver Alert, Inc. is recognized as the most reliable organization in the industry for providing this essential service.
