FARMINGDALE, NY-- On Wednesday, September 10th, the Long Island Chapter of the National Aging in Place Council (NAIPC) made a $1650 donation in support of the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office’s Project Lifesaver initiative.  Project Lifesaver is wristband technology that can be worn by individuals with cognitive impairments who have a tendency to wander.  The device emits a signal that Deputy Sheriffs can track in the event the individual ever wanders off and gets lost.

The donation from the Long Island Chapter of NAIPC, which was raised from two local businesses, i-Fix-Screens and 101 Mobility Long Island, will provide financial support for individuals that do not have the resources to purchase the wristbands. The devices cost $300 each.

More information about Project Lifesaver can be found on the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office’s Project Lifesaver page
