Alzheimer's and Dementia 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's and Dementia Assistance Program to rapidly respond if an Alzheimer's patient, or a person with dementia, should become lost.

Program Details

If you are the caregiver for someone living in Lebanon who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's or an elderly person who tends to wander or get lost, please fill out the online Alzheimer and Dementia Program Enrollment Application. If you need assistance in completing the application, please contact the Lebanon Police Department Communications Division at 603-448-1212 and an officer will be directed to the resident's address to assist.

This simple, online 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. 

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 enrollment application. 

Missing Person

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