  • What is Project Lifesaver?
    • The primary mission of Project Lifesaver 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 does the program work?
    • Participants wear waterproof transmitter bracelets that emit radio signals unique to him or her. Using a corresponding receiver, law enforcement can track a wandering or missing person. It takes only 30 minutes on average for Project Lifesaver to locate a missing person! An alert is sent to the Chatham County Sheriff's Office in the event that a person wearing the wristband goes missing, and a search and rescue team is dispatched to the scene.
  • Who is eligible for this program?
    • This program is for people who suffer from severe brain injuries or diseases such as Alzheimer's, Dementia, Down's syndrome, and Autism. The program is intended to help people who are at risk of wandering and becoming disoriented and confused.
  • How much does it cost?
    • There are two types of programs that we offer. The first is a onetime cost of $300 which will cover the purchase of the monitor and batteries and wristbands for one year. The other plan is a client can lease to own the equipment for $20 a month for 24 months. At the end of this time will own the monitor. We are also working with our local chapter of the Pilot Club International who are raising money to provide monitors to those that cannot afford them.
