Project Lifesaver helps families to protect members who may wander or bolt; typically individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease, autism, down syndrome, acquired brain injury or other kinds of cognitive impairment.
The program equips individuals who have a history of wandering with a one-ounce wrist-transmitter that emits a radio tracking signal 24/7 within a two kilometre radius. When notified by caregivers that the individual is missing, specially trained law enforcement officers use mobile tracking equipment to find them.
My son who has severe autism and is non-verbal wondered out of our home during a birthday party this weekend and thankfully was found safely within about 10 minutes. There is another senior with Alzheimer's disease missing since July 5 that has still not been found who wondered from her Burlington home.
This gps tracking device is needed in Halton Region and can save lives! Please sign this petition so we can make this happen!
