What is the WAY Program?

Where Are You?

Helping us to locate your wandering loved one.

This program started in 2012 with a grant from the community fund and has been designed to assist in the recovery of Alzheimer and Dementia residents who may wander away from their homes.

It provides a small GPS transmitter which enables a spouse (or caregiver) and, if requested, the SCW Posse to locate the person via computer – ANYWHERE.


  •   The person must wear the GPS unit
  •   It is round, flat and about 2” in diameter
  •   Made of a very strong plastic.
  •   It must also be charged every 3-5 days

Applying is easy:

  •   Call for an appointment – 623-584-5808
  •   Fill out an application form
  •   Sign a liability form
  •   A picture (which we take) to assist patrol personnel in a search
  •   $100 check, which is a refundable deposit, made out to Sun City West Sheriff’s Posse
