RESOURCES FOR SENIORS
Resource Guide for Older Adults at Risk of Going Missing
This resource guide was developed by The Calgary Missing Older Adult Resource Network (CMOARN). For more information, click the link here: https://missingseniors.ca/
This resource guide is a tool to support vulnerable older adults who may be at risk of going missing. The guide incorporates prevention tips, preparedness in the event someone does go missing, available resources and tips forcommunity members if they find someone that has gone missing. The guide has been translated into a number of different languages.
The guide is designed for individuals and caregivers of older adults who have dementia, mental illness, or brain injury, or any other reason that makes them vulnerable. Users are encouraged to refer to the sections that are relevant to their specific situation. Someone going missing is a very stressful situation and being prepared for potential missing “incidents” may help relieve that stress and give a better sense of control for individuals and caregivers. In addition, having information about the missing person readily available can better support responders starting a search.
Guide will be available in different languages soon.
