Take Me Home™ is a database for people who may need special assistance if they are alone or in times of emergency. This kind of assistance may be required if the person cannot speak or correctly identify themselves or if they become disoriented or act in a manner that first responders could misinterpret.
The system includes a current digital picture, demographic information, and caregiver contacts. If a police officer encounters a person in the Take Me Home system, the officer can query the Take Me Home system, searching by name or by the person’s physical description.
