Safe Return

Safe Return program has been decommissioned in February 2020

The Safe Return was a joint initiative between Dementia Australia South Australia and the South Australia Police to help ensure the safety of people at risk of becoming lost. The program enabled the rapid identification and return home of people who become lost by using a unique ID code engraved on a secure bracelet. The details of the person at risk of becoming lost are accessible only by you and the SA Police.

Talk with me

Talk with me! Good communication tips for talking to people with dementia

These are principles of communication that people living with dementia have told us would make a difference to their lives.

TALK WITH ME
Please talk with me, not my carer, family member or friend. Don’t prejudge my level of understanding.

PLEASE SPEAK CLEARLY
Make eye contact and speak clearly. Use short sentences, with one idea at a time. Avoid jargon, as I might misunderstand.
