Over 5,000,000 people in the USA have Alzheimer's and related disorders. This number is expected to
triple by 2050. Well over 50% of these people wander and become lost. Unaware of their situation, people
with Alzheimer’s often fail to call out for help or respond to people calling out to them. Nearly half of those
who wander will die and many become injured or fall victim to predators if they are not located within 24
hours.
The primary mission of Project Lifesaver is to provide timely response to save lives and reduce potential injury for adults and children who wander due to Alzheimer’s, autism, and other related conditions or disorders.
The task of searching for wandering or lost individuals with Alzheimer’s, autism, Down syndrome, dementia or other cognitive conditions is a growing and serious responsibility. Without effective procedures and equipment, searches can involve multiple agencies, hundreds of officers, countless man hours and thousands of dollars. More importantly, because time is of the essence, every minute lost increases the risk of a tragic outcome.
Working hand in hand with trained public safety agencies, Project Lifesaver International (PLI) will help you save time, money and most importantly, your loved ones.
