On Friday, November 21, Trey Atwood of the Rockingham County Sheriff’s Department will speak about Project Lifesaver and it’s benefits.
Project Lifesaver is a bracelet monitoring system for individuals with a diagnosis such as Alzheimer’s or Autism who have a potential to wander away from their home. The locator system has had a 100% success rate in returning these individuals to home safely and quickly, giving peace of mind to the family, friends, and the individual themselves.
Atwood is also an Investigator with Criminal Investigations Division and Coordinator of Project Lifesaver.
Join us from 9:00 – 10:30am at Bridgewater Retirement Community (302 North Second Street, Bridgewater) in the Houff Community Center. Visitors are welcome – look for the signs!
The meeting will also feature a “member spotlight” presentation by Joyce Nussbaum. She is the Chronic Disease Self-Management Education Coordinator at Valley Program for Aging Services.
Last but not least, remember to participate in our monthly contest! You may need to research your family tree. The person whose family has been in the Valley the longest will win a prize donated by the Chamber!
