Council on Aging and Milton Police Department announce Silver Alert Program for adults afflicted with memory impairments

We are pleased to announce the Council on Aging is partnering with the Milton Police Department on the implementation of a Silver Alert Program for the Town of Milton.

The Silver Alert Program provides support to family members caring for adults afflicted with serious memory impairments such as Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease who are “At Risk” for wandering. The Silver Alert Program provides the Milton Police Department with vital information about potential “At Risk” residents in the Town who may wander, or have the potential for getting lost. This program takes a proactive approach toward protecting some of Milton’s most vulnerable citizens who suffer from serious cognitive impairments.

The Silver Alert Program is a partnership between the Milton Police Department and the Milton Council on Aging.

To participate in the Silver Alert program please complete the registration form and provide a current photo of the registrant. This personal and medical information will be entered into a confidential database at the Milton Police Department and will be utilized in a recovery plan should the need arise. Having this key data will reduce police response time, and in turn, may save lives.

Registration forms are available at the Milton Police Station, Milton Council on Aging or online at www.townofmilton.org/police or www.townofmilton.org/coa . Please return the completed form and photo to either the Milton Police Department at 40 Highland St. Milton, Ma. 02186 or the Milton Council on Aging at 10 Walnut St. Milton, Ma. 02186. Please write attention to Officer Patty Mandeville.

If you have any questions please contact Milton Police Elder Affairs Officer Patty Mandeville at 617-698-3800.

If there is a LOST or MISSING person, please call 911
