What is Project Lifesaver and how does it work?
Project Lifesaver is a rapid response program that aids victims and families who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, Dementia, and Autism. The program uses state of the art technology and specially trained officers to locate individuals who have wandered away.
The client wears a personalized transmitter that emits a tracking signal, allowing the officers to locate the patient quickly. The average rescue time is 22 minutes after the individual has been reported missing.
There are approximately 101,000 individuals in Virginia with Alzheimer’s disease, making Project Lifesaver an important and helpful program.
