Project Lifesaver is a collaborative effort sponsored by the Saginaw County Commission on Aging and the Saginaw County Sheriff's Office with support provided by the Saginaw County Triad, and the Saginaw County Dementia Advisory Board.
This program is offered to the Saginaw County residents, age sixty (60) years or older, who are affected by severe forms of dementia related illnesses. It is designed to assist in the tracking and locating of people who suffer from Alzheimer's and other related mental dysfunction disorders that may cause them to become lost.
The goal of Project Lifesaver is to ensure that no person suffering from a dementia related illness will become a victim of that illness and that they will be returned safely to their home and family.
