The VC Found Project Lifesaver program is designed to protect, and when necessary, quickly locate individuals with cognitive disorders who are prone to the life-threatening behavior of wandering.

Project Lifesaver bracelets — which are free — are intended for individuals who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia.

The method relies on proven radio technology. If an enrolled client goes missing, the caregiver notifies 911. The Project Lifesaver bracelet device works by emitting a radio frequency that can be used by law enforcement to assist in locating your loved one when they go missing.

Project Lifesaver is currently available in the following communities: Camarillo, Fillmore, Moorpark, Ojai, Thousand Oaks.

If you are interested but live in an area of Ventura County where Project Lifesaver is not currently available, please feel free to submit an application. If and when the coverage area expands, we will have your information on our waiting list.
