Alzheimer’s San Diego and the San Diego Sheriff’s Department have teamed up for the Take Me Home program.
What is Take Me Home?
Take Me Home was designed to help at-risk San Diegans get home safely. Getting lost is scary and can be dangerous – especially for someone living with dementia, autism, or other developmental disabilities. Download a brochure in English here, and in Spanish here.
Ask yourself: What would my person do if they were not able to communicate their name or address if they were lost? Take Me Home is designed to be a safeguard if a person becomes disoriented or confused, and unable to identify how to get back home.

Here’s how it works: Simply register online by clicking here, or by filling out a paper application. (Download an application in Spanish here.) You’ll submit a headshot photo of the person at risk of wandering, basic information (such as a nickname or favorite place to go), and who to contact – then you’re done! The application takes about 15-20 minutes to complete. This information is confidential, and can only be accessed by law enforcement in an emergency if that person is missing.
