In 2009, Omnilink Systems and the Alzheimer's Association jointly launched Alzheimer's Association Comfort Zone®, powered by Omnilink is a unique solution intended to provide individuals with Alzheimer's the opportunity to maintain their independence and enjoy the security of familiar routines and surroundings. The Comfort Zone® solution combines dedicated tracking devices with specific service plans in order to provide families and caregivers with a continuous stream of location information in order to help ensure an individual remains at safe locations when necessary or to help return an individual safely if they happen to wander.
The Comfort Zone® solution also includes enrollment in the MedicAlert® + Alzheimer's Association Safe Return® program, a nationwide 24x7 jewelry identifciation program and emergency response service for those with medical and wandering emergencies.
