Mine is 16 and he doesn’t seem to have the best sense of smell left….I think that is a big part of the problem since they use smell to get around.  Poor old things

Thanks, Marya! I'm glad it's not just mine. I was hoping it wasn't dementia or something. He's 17.


I'm sorry your senior gets lost. I feel so bad for them when they do.


Someone suggested I tie a little sleigh bell to my shoe so Max could find me wherever I am in the house. But it'd probably wake everyone else up. Lol. I don't know. I've read you can use certain smells to mark certain spots, like the stairs too. But I haven't tried it.



Thanks for responding!

Anna, Max and Cocoa

YES!  I have a blind senior who gets lost a lot.  It seems he gets worse as he gets older.
