The Council On Aging (COA) and the Melrose Police Department have joined to create a recovery plan designed to provide rapid response in locating cognitively impaired residents (of any age) who have been reported missing.

Residents with a loved one suffering from a serious cognitive impairment are encouraged to come learn more about this free program and to register their loved one.  Registration forms may be downloaded at

Please submit the completed registration form to the Melrose Police Department by mail or in person at 56 West Foster Street, Melrose MA 02176.
