Safe Return

The Safe Return is 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 enables 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.

Safe Return offers peace of mind to anyone who cares for a person at risk of becoming lost (person of concern). The Safe Return program supports the South Australia Police to rapidly and accurately identify a person of concern and to support their safe return home.

The Safe Return program can help:

  • People with dementia
  • People with intellectual disability
  • Residential Aged Care Providers
  • People with Autism Spectrum Disorder
