Project Lifesaver stands for Programmed Rescue Operation Joining Electronic Computer Technologies to Locate and Identify Frequency Emissions to Search for and Assist Victims to Enhance Recovery.
Project Lifesaver will reduce the time to locate Alzheimer's victims and other persons suffering from dementia who may walk away from their place of residence. Project Lifesaver is an innovative and superlative initiative to aid the victims and families of victims suffering from Alzheimer's and other related mentally dysfunctional disorders (ARMD).
ARMD people are victims just as they were criminally attacked because ARMD physically robs the victims of their mental faculties, their dignity, their health, and ultimately their life. The victim's family also suffers as family members to watch the ARMD assault ravish their loved one; stealing hope, rest, and peace of mind.
Project Lifesaver will provide relief to these families and caretakers from the constant fear of being able to quickly locate their loved ones should they wander from their homes.
The purpose of Project Lifesaver is to utilize state-of-the-art technologies in conjunction with the Pittsylvania County Sheriff's Office that will supplement and integrate with existing public safety operations regarding emergency service operations involving "lost and wandering" ARMD victims.
Funding from Project Lifesaver is a result of private and corporate donations. Since Project Lifesaver is comprised of volunteers, donations are used directly for programs, rescues, and education expenses.
