In Australia in 2019 there are an estimated 447, 115 Australians living with dementia and an estimated 27 247 people with younger onset dementia, with these figures set to rise. It’s estimated that 1.5 million people in Australia are involved in the care of someone living with dementia. (https://www.dementia.org.au/files/documents/2019-Dementia-Key-facts-stats.pdf)
Around 60% of those living with dementia have a tendency to wander. Most are found within the first 12 hours, however 7% not found, over 25% suffer serious injury or death.
