Locator bracelets approved for Alzheimer’s patients

The Palm Beach County Commission figures if you can put an electronic locator on your keys, you can certainly do it for those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.

After all, it has become all too common to hear reports of someone suffering from the horrible disease to wander off.

The commission approved this morning a $20,000-plus contract for Alzheimer’s Community Care, to provide an additional electronic ID locator bracelets for 100 at-risk Alzheimer’s patients.

The program will help law enforcement quickly pinpoint a participant’s location by land or by air if needed.

The commission also helped out seniors with a  contract worth up to $40,000 for Gulfstream Goodwill Industries to provide hearing aids and interpreting services to senior clients.
