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
