What takes place during the monthly maintenance visit?

Once a month, usually following the monthly anniversary date, an assigned Project Lifesaver volunteer will be in contact with you to make arrangements to change your loved one’s transmitter’s battery and strap.

The appointment usually lasts fifteen minutes and most often will take place in your loved one’s home. The visit will consist of the volunteer reviewing and collecting the completed monthly caregiver log sheet and providing a new form, removing and inspecting your loved one’s transmitter, cleaning any residue before lubricating the ‘o ring’ and replacing the battery before placing the transmitter on your loved one with a new band. The volunteer will address any issues or concerns and will schedule your loved one’s next monthly visit before they leave.
