If I Need Help
Are you the caregiver or loved one of someone with autism, Alzheimer’s, Down Syndrome, or other cognitive or physical impairments who tends to wander? Check out If I Need Help, a company founded by two parents of a child with autism that has designed items carrying a personalized ID to be attached to a loved one's clothing or personal items.
If a loved one with a cognitive or physical impairment is lost, the person who finds them will be alerted to their condition by the patch or necklace on the wanderer and can scan the ID with a smart phone or manually enter the ID into the website to reveal contact information and any important medical issues. The caregivers can also update the information stored by the ID in real time.
