Project Lifesaver is a proactive response to identify those individuals within the community who have a propensity to wander and not be able to return home. This program consists of a small radio transmitter that the client wears on their wrist or ankle. Each transmitter has a frequency that is unique to that client. They can then be tracked by receiving equipment that trained emergency responders use.
The primary mission of Project Lifesaver Hendricks County 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.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
All equipment used is owned and maintained by Project Lifesaver Hendricks County. Each client requires one transmitter at a cost of $300. The transmitters need to have their battery replaced each month at a cost of $10 per transmitter per month.
Our goal is that through grants, donations and fundraisers we will be able to continue offering the transmitters at NO COST to the caregivers. Thanks to all of our community partners for their continued support.
HOW DO I ENROLL MY LOVED ONE?
Please contact us! Once we have been contacted, we will then arrange a meeting to present the program to you. Before our meeting, please be sure to print and complete all of the registration paperwork below. You can email them to Karen Utley or Brian Nugent. We can also collect them at the time of your meeting. Once we have been notified that your paperwork is completed, we will then arrange another meeting to place the transmitter on your loved one and begin the program.
