Project Lifesaver is an innovative and rapidly growing program

aiding the families of those diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease

and related disorders such as Down Syndrome and Autism.

Project Lifesaver uses state-of-the-art technology employing

wristband transmitters to locate wandering, lost adults and children.




     Project Lifesaver is much more than a passive ID Bracelet.

It is an active system that relies on state-of-the-art technology and

a specially trained search and rescue team. People who are a part

of the Project Lifesaver program wear a personalized bracelet that

emits a tracking signal. When caregivers notify the local Project

Lifesaver Agency that the person is missing, a search and rescue

team responds to the wanderer's area and starts searching with the

mobile locater tracking system.





Here are some facts about Alzheimer's Disease, Dementia, and Autism:

1 in 8 people older than 65 and 50% of those over the age of 85 have Alzheimer's Disease.

60% of people with Dementia will wander off at some point.

Survival rate of an Alzheimer's patient is only 50% if gone for 24 hours.

Autistic children often wander off and may have no sense of physical danger.


Missing Persons with Alzheimer's Disease or Autism usually do not call out for help or respond to those who may be searching.
