Getting Out and About
Staying active and maintaining our social connections are good for all of us and should be part of a healthy routine, however getting out and about safely on your own can become more challenging when living with dementia and you can lose your confidence.
We have developed a suite of guidance to support Safer Walking, which you can download from links on this page.
If you haven't already done so, please consider downloading and creating a profile on Purple Alert, which is an app we created to help build a community of support around families if someone with dementia is missing. It gives eyes and ears on the ground and was co-designed alongside people living with dementia and the emergency services.
Have a look down the page for some things that might help you with getting out and about, with reviews from families living with dementia.
