This is where ASHPE is stepping in to help by offering Project Lifesaver to local individuals who are at risk of wandering.
- In 2011 it was reported that15% of Canadians aged 65 years and older were living with Alzheimer disease and other dementias.
- 60% of those individuals will wander away from home at least once
- 50% of those not found within 24 hours are at risk of serious injury or even death
The mission of Project Lifesaver is to provide timely response to save lives and reduce potential injury. Project Lifesaver combines radio technology with trained police services to save time and most importantly, bring your loved one home safe.
