Specifications

Specifications include, but are not limited to:The Washoe County Purchasing Office is currently accepting sealed proposals from local community based organizations to assist the Washoe County Sheriffs Office with supportive services for their grant-funded Wandering Prevention Program, hereinafter referred to as WPP. WPP is aimed to protect persons who are affected by Alzheimers, dementia or other cognitive impairments and are at risk of wandering, becoming lost and putting themselves in danger. There are approximately 10,000 people living in Washoe County with Alzheimers disease, dementia or related dementia. It is estimated that 70 percent of people living with Alzheimers disease will wander at some point. In order to prevent wandering and protect those in danger, the Wandering Prevention Program will be using several initiatives including Wandering Kits, Care Track tracking systems and an app to increase emergency personnel efficiency. If a person has wandered and become lost, a mobile app can now be accessed by emergency personnel to access the persons information, including picture, transmitter frequency, possible medications and habits in order to help locate the person quickly. The Washoe County Sheriffs Office, Reno Police Department and Sparks Police Department all use the Care Trak tracking system. In addition, all Washoe County Sheriffs Office Patrol Division, Search and Rescue Unit, Vulnerable Persons Unit, RAVEN and Reno and Sparks Police Departments are equipped with Care Trak receivers. Mailers were sent to all senior residential facilities and geriatric doctors in Washoe County with information on the program and the Wandering Kits. Grant funding available for the WPP is $35,000 in year one and $37,290 in year two of the two year grant period. It is anticipated that the successful organization will hire a full time employee to manage the daily operation of the WPP. The Washoe County Sheriffs Office, not the successful proposer, will be responsible for all purchases required for the WPP program
