PURPLE ALERT APP
Alzheimer Scotland along with Police Scotland, Social Work, Dementia Friends Scotland, HSCP, Carers and telecare services designed Purple Alert App, a free app helping to trace those living with dementia who are prone to wandering.
The aim of the app is to keep people who have dementia in the community safe. An estimated six in ten people with dementia are at risk of wandering and finding themselves lost.
WHO IS THE APP FOR?
1. Carers of people who are living with dementia – the app means that they may be able to trace people quickly with the help of the community.
2. Members of the community who want to help people who are living with dementia. The Purple Alert App gives them the opportunity to do this.
