My grandmother passed away from Alzheimer's. Years ago, she left home and was lost for hours before a policeman found her. She didn't understand English. Please record a video about your loved one using Flipgrid,and create a QR code bracelet for them. It could make a difference.
2. Create a grid and a topic for your loved one. By creating a topic, you will be able to record and upload multiple videos. You can hide old videos and update as often as you need to.
3. Allow topic guest access so anyone with the guest code can view videos in the topic. Turn off the "Allow Recording" option.
4. Download the Topic Guest QR code and use this code to create jewelry, zipper pulls, and labels to locate your loved one. You can also share the QR code and the link through email, social media, posters, and flyers.
5. When someone finds your loved one they scan your QR code and will have access to your grid, the topic, and all of the video responses.
