Alzheimer's Program

Purpose


As part of our mission to protect life and to assist the public-at-large in a manner consistent with the rights and dignity of all persons, the Lebanon Police Department has developed an Alzheimer Assistance Program to rapidly respond in the event that an Alzheimer patient should become lost.

Program Details


If you are the caregiver for someone living in Lebanon who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer or an elderly person who tends to wander or get lost, please fill out the Alzheimer Assistance Program Information Sheet (PDF) and contact the Lebanon Police Department at 603-448-1212. Advise the Communications Specialist that you would like to have someone included in the Alzheimer Assistance Program. An officer will be directed to the resident's address and will assist you in filling out an Alzheimer Assistance Program Information Sheet (PDF).

This simple, 1-page, form includes information that will help us identify the person, such as height, weight, hair and eye color, as well as provide names of emergency contact people and medical information such as preferred hospital, primary care physician, allergies, and medications. It is necessary to have a photograph of the person. The officer will take a photograph if a recent one is not readily available.

All of the information you provide will be entered into our computer system along with the photograph and an Information Poster will be generated. A copy of this poster will be given to all of the emergency contact people listed on the Alzheimer Patient Information Sheet.

Missing Person


If the Alzheimer Patient becomes lost, call the Lebanon Police Department immediately and advise the Communications Specialist that answers that the lost person is a participant in the Alzheimer Assistance Program. An officer will be dispatched to locate the missing person.
