Taking care of our Elderly Citizens and those with mental illness

According to the National Library of Medicine (NLM), 60% of people living with Alzheimer's leave and wander away from their homes.

Elias will implement programs to protect and help serve the Alzheimer's, Dementia and Autistic communities. One of many programs is the "Life Saver Program." Elias has served as an "Ambassador" in this program and can attest to the effectiveness and value of the program. The program consist (upon approval/consent of the affected person/family members) of a tracking device that can be applied to a wrist or ankle. These tracking devices are small in size and water proof. Selected members of the Sheriff's Office will be equipped with tracking devices to find your loved ones when and if they wonder off, or go missing. Elias lived and has experience with an elderly person with dementia who benefitted from this program. Those with IDD, Elias will have Deputies rotate in facilities and interact with the IDD community for educational purpose.
