(b) You have a recent documented history of falls.

(a) You have a recent documented history of short-term memory loss; and a recent documented history of wandering with exit seeking behavior; or
(b) A recent documented history of getting lost in a familiar surrounding and being unaware of the need or unable to ask for assistance; and
(c) In addition, if you are under the age of 12, there must be information presented at your assessment that due to your disability the support you are provided for memory or decision making is greater than is typical for a person of your age.
