Project Lifesavers depends on a cooperative working relationship with community partners. The Search and Rescue Society of British Columbia (SARBC) and The We Rage We Weep Alzheimers Foundation (WRWW) work together to offer the Project Lifesaver program in the Greater Victoria area. Client Management services, which involves enrolling the client and performing the monthly visits, are performed by the members of both We Rage We Weep and SARBC.
Response services are provided by specially trained volunteer search and rescue members of SARBC (for Greater Victoria) and Juan de Fuca Search and Rescue (for Sooke District). There is no charge for Search and Rescue services.
We believe passionately that Project Lifesavers technology will enhance the quality of life for people with Alzheimers,Dementia, Downs or Autism and their caregivers. Our program acknowledges the diverse needs of our clientele and we treat all clientele and their caregivers with honesty, integrity and respect.
The effectiveness of the program is consistently measured and evaluated based on the data collected from search and rescue operations. The Greater Victoria program, started in 2008, has a 100% success rate.
