Mission

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.

Program Description

Citizens enrolled in Project Lifesaver wear a small personal transmitter around the wrist or ankle that emits an individualized tracking signal. If an enrolled client goes missing, the caregiver notifies their local Project Lifesaver agency, and a trained emergency team responds to the wanderer's area. Most who wander are found within a few miles from home, and search times have been reduced from hours and days to minutes.

If you are interested in enrolling a friend or loved one on the program, and you know of a Project Lifesaver agency in your area, please call them directly as they will have the most up-to-date pricing information and local contacts to help get you started and enroll your loved one on the program.

The Autism Society of Indiana has partnered with the Marion County PLS to offer this program to families in need. You can find more information on the ASI website, www.inautism.org.

Financial

Typical costs to enroll a loved one:

  • Starter Kit - $300 includes transmitter, 12 bands and 12 batteries
  • Replacement bands & batteries - $5 for month supply

Costs may vary; please contact your local agency for specific cost. Some agencies participate in grant programs and may be able to provide services at discounted rates.
