WANDERERS AND MISSING PERSONS RESOURCES AND SERVICES QUESTIONNAIRE

On February 28, 2017, the County of Los Angeles Board of Supervisors adopted a motion to establish a Countywide response system to expedite the recovery of individuals who wander from their families and caregivers, such as individuals with Dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease, or Autism.  The Board Motion can be accessed at: http://file.lacounty.gov/SDSInter/bos/supdocs/111874.pdf.

Workforce Development, Aging and Community Services was tasked with launching the “Bringing Our Loved Ones Home” (BOLOH) Task Force to explore options and develop recommendations for the Board to mitigate the escalating wandering crisis.  The inaugural Task Force meeting on April 6, 2017 brought together many key stakeholders and decided on conducting this survey to gather information about existing systems and first responder training programs within the County or neighboring areas.  Your input and suggestions will help create a countywide inventory of resources and services as well as assist in the development of recommendations for the Board of Supervisors.  Please provide us with your feedback by completing the following survey.  (Tip: you can copy and paste your response from a Word text into each of the questionnaire items in this survey)
