I'm just back from lunch with Cathy Whittington, Coordinator of the West Police Service Center, Arlington Police Department. We have a common interest which is returning safely to their homes disabled persons who are lost and unable to tell a first responder their names/addresses. We have an altruistic motive but beyond that Cathy has a teenage son with autism and I am especially interested in helping people with NCD (neurocognitive disorder, which is the preferred term instead of "dementia" or "Alzheimer's."
One free software program available is called the "Take Me Home Program" which I have blogged about before and which is available for the Pensacola FL Police Department. There is a little more research to do before approaching the County or City with a request to implement the program.
