Description

Unexplained absences of residential aged care residents, often referred to as absconding, eloping and wandering, or leave without notification is one of the most challenging issues related to the care of older people. 

The issue of “to lock or not” poses challenges for the care provider when trying to balance safety with independence.  

Understanding how to manage leave without notification of residential aged care residents will become more acute as the population ages. Which is worse, the psychological impact of being locked in versus the physical risk of leaving?
