Senior Project Lifesaver service

Project Lifesaver is a program designed to help individuals with Alzheimer’s or other types of dementia, who may wander or become disoriented and get lost. Project Lifesaver provides a timely response to save lives and reduce potential injury.  In partnership with the Westchester County Departments of Community Mental Health, Public Safety, and Senior Programs and Services, this program offers locator bracelets that use state-of-the-art technology, with registered transmitters to locate wandering or lost seniors.  The program is free-of-charge for seniors 60 years of age or older, who reside in Westchester County.   Caregivers, who must also reside in Westchester County, can call Isabel M. Pettersen for information and an application (which can be downloaded here).

If you are looking for the Project Lifesaver application for a child or young adult with autism or other developmental disabilities, please click here or refer to the Disabilities/Autism section, then go to Project Lifesaver.
