Elder ID is a program designed for Alzheimer's patients and others with memory loss who may have the potential to wander away from home and get lost. A photograph and identifying information are kept on file with the Placerville Police Department, EDC Sheriff's Department, Central Dispatch and the Senior Day Care Center. If a participant becomes lost in the community, Elder ID will help law enforcement officers expedite a safe return home. All information is kept confidential. This program is free, though a small donation is appreciated.
The EDC Care Trak Program takes Elder ID one step further through the use of a tracking system. A person with the potential to wander from home wears a radio transmitter on his/her wrist, ankle or in a belt. The transmitter puts out a specific frequency that the EDC Search and Rescue can pick up using a sophisticated device called a "Mobile Locator." This system greatly increases the chances of a person being found quickly.
