A new program to help elders struggling with different mental and physical issues is coming to Kapuskasing.

OPP Staff Sergeant Baldassare Nuccio says a large amount of community engagement with the OPP has afforded them the opportunity to begin the lifesaver program.

Nuccio says the lifesaver program will be something that communities in this area have yet to try.


He also says elders dealing with alzheimers, dementia, wandering or autism are the main focus of the program.
