L.A. Found is an initiative to improve Los Angeles County’s response to when a person wanders or gets lost—including implementing new technologies, improving coordination of emergency responders, and connecting residents to resources.
Alzheimer’s Los Angeles, along with Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Janice Hahn and Kathryn Barger and L.A. Found hosted a series of dementia home safety webinar to provide education to caregivers in English, Spanish, and Mandarin Chinese. Watch the recordings.
One of the technologies supported by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department is Project Lifesaver – a wearable radio frequency technology that assists law enforcement in finding someone with cognitive impairment when they go missing. This technology is available throughout the County. Visit L.A. Found for more information.
Alzheimer’s Los Angeles is proud to be a partner of the L.A. Found taskforce to advocate for the needs of local Alzheimer’s families.
