Caregiver Magazine Urges Preventive Measures Against Wandering, Falls, Abuse
Date:2/6/2008

Release Coincides With National and Local News on these Issues

NEW YORK, Feb. 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --- When Elda Jackson of Fonthill, Ontario got a call from the police that her husband had tried to enter a house that he mistakenly thought was his own, she knew she had to take action. Her husband, LaVern, had gone missing several times since he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2004, but this time the situation had really gotten out of control.

The magazine, now in its fourth year of publication, is available by free subscription to caregivers and distributed to doctors' offices, long-term care facilities, K-Mart pharmacies and other venues. To subscribe, visit http://www.afacareadvantage.org or call 866-232-8484.
