Bring Me Back Home Registry

    Bring Me Back Home (BMBH) is a new registry for Connecticut residents to assist in the recovery of missing or wandering persons whose cognitive challenges may lead to confusion and disorientation such as those with dementia or autism.  The information you provide is confidential and secure and can only be accessed by law enforcement personnel in the event of an emergency.

    After registering your loved one with cognitive challenges in the Bring Me Back Home program, the information is then part of the statewide registry accessible by law enforcement personnel if an emergency occurs.  If your loved one wanders or is missing, individuals should call 911 immediately and indicate that they are registered with the Bring Me Back Home program.
