Since last year, “Simulation training for protecting wandereres” has also been offered in Iruma City this year.From this year on, the name of this training is changed to the “Training for saying something to anyone wandering away.” The training was given in two areas of Kaneko and Higashimachi under the new name. The training was hosted by “Committee for creating a town with the safety net for those who wandered away, and was implemented with the participation of the staff of Elderly Welfare Department of Iruma City and Sayama Police Station seemingly in an organized way.Moreover, the junior high school students in both areas also were participating. We considered it important to watch for the safety of dementia wanderers with the participation of as many people as possible from the region as a whole.
Be careful about three types of “Don’t” in saying something to the wanderers.
- Do not surprise
- Do not rush
- Do not hurt one’s pride.
