Growing up I lived next to a family who had a daughter with Down Syndrome. I worried about her like I would have my own sister. But I never realized if you have down syndrome you may be prone to wander and that can be a life threatening situation. From time to time, you will hear on Region 8 News that a person with a disorder like Alzheimer's disease, Autism or Down Syndrome has wandered off and can't be located. One Region 8 group is doing something about that. The Elks Lodge 498 was recently awarded a 2014 Impact Grant from the Elks National Foundation. The lodge will receive 9 thousand dollars for its Project Lifesaver. The Elks partner with police in an electronic wristband program for those who may wander and be unable to find their way home. The elks visit with program participants each month to replace wristbands, answer questions and provide support to the participants and their families. Thank you to the members of Elks Lodge 498 -- the work you are doing is making this a better and safer Region 8.
