The Long Island Chapter of the National Aging In Place Council is proud to announce that they recently obtained corporate sponsors for Project Lifesaver.
Project Lifesaver is a radio pendant worn by Alzheimer's and dementia patients so that if they wander, they can be quickly found by local law enforcement authorities.
Traditional methods of a standard search can take hours, but with the Project Lifesaver pendant being worn by the client, over 95% of the searches are successfully carried out within 30 minutes.
