Learn more about Project Lifesaver
Project Lifesaver Halton is a program that helps families to protect members who might wander or run away, typically people living with:
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Down syndrome
- Acquired brain injury
- Other kinds of cognitive impairment
People in the program wear a small bracelet with a transmitter that sends out a radio tracking signal 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If caregivers notify the police that the person is missing, a specially trained emergency response team will use mobile tracking equipment to find them. Please contact the Halton Regional Police Service to apply for the program.
Apply for a subsidy
Halton Region residents with low incomes, as well as people receiving Ontario Works and Ontario Disability Support, may qualify for a subsidy to cover the costs of the Project Lifesaver Halton program. If your family meets the program requirements, Halton Regional Police Service will ask if you require a subsidy and connect you with Halton Region for the next steps.
