Project Lifesaver is a search and rescue program designed to provide a timely response, reduce possible injury, and save the lives of individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, Autism, Downs Syndrome, Traumatic Brain Injury, Alzheimer’s, Dementia, or other cognitive disorders or developmental disabilities. Additionally, the individual must have a history of or severe risk of wandering, eloping, or becoming disoriented as documented in a Life Plan, IEP, or medical diagnosis. Each person is referred to as a “client.” Project Lifesaver’s primary mission is to return at risk individuals inclined to wander home safely to their loved ones.
