This emergency service has been created to coordinate help for foreign residents and tourists with dementia who are experiencing an emergency situation within Costa Rica.
We coordinate relief efforts with Costa Rican emergency resources and through the use of social media, network volunteers from local foreign residents living in the area where help is needed. These expat community residents locate the person, assess the situation and organize aid.
We are developing a regional data base of dementia resources in various areas of the country.
The individual’s family normally is living in their home country and our service contacts their families and provides information updates, direct contact with those helping their loved one and assist in getting them home if necessary.
