Project Lifesaver International


It is the nation's most effective program for locating and rescuing missing Alzheimer's patients.

Project Lifesaver has completed over 1,000 successful search & rescue missions for wandering victims of Alzheimer's disease, autism, Down syndrome, and related dementia-type disorders. All persons were found alive and returned home using Project Lifesaver at a 100% recovery rate. Project Lifesaver uses electronic tracking systems to locate the patient during a wandering incident. It does not use a passive bracelet with a toll free number. Such passive bracelets do not locate the patient, but only provide information about the patient once he is located and someone calls the number. Many times, wandering incidents end tragically because the individual is not found quickly enough. Project Lifesaver has been successful because it actually locates the person quickly, before it is too late. This difference between a passive ID bracelet and an active tracking device is paramount to locating the person fast enough to save a life.

Wandering behavior affects nearly six in every 10 Alzheimer's patients

How do you get a brace­let? The bracelets can be purchased for $263.00, plus a $7.50 fee for battery changes. If you or someone you know would like to become a member of Pro­ject Life­saver, call the Office of the Fayette County Sheriff at 859-252-1771, or Lex­ing­ton Senior Citizen's Center at 859-278-6072.

Project Lifesaver is not affiliated with the Alzheimer's Association or any of its programs. Project Lifesaver is a proactive, electronic tracking, public safety program.

No other program matches Project Lifesaver's success! Project Lifesaver is the only program which is based upon an exclusive partnership with local sheriff, police, fire and other public safety agencies to train and equip them to accomplish this critical, life-saving mission. WE BRING LOVED ONES HOME.
