To provide an additional layer of protection for children and adults who wander due to Autism, Alzheimer’s and other cognitive disabilities. Our goal is to provide parents and caregivers with additional peace of mind.
Safely Back Home’s program was developed in response to a need to provide assistance to individuals with Alzheimer’s, Autism, or developmental disabilities who are incapable of providing identifying information in situations where they become lost. The imprinted garment alerts the public and police that the individual may need more assistance than they initially realize.
The patent-pending process uses “privacy-protected” ID information imprinted on personal garments to be conveyed to an emergency call center, secure database and rescue operation.

Words From Families In The Safely Back Home Program
For a long time I was looking for a way to be able to find my sons in case they are lost or separated from their care giver (which happened a few times). The printed garment idea, developed by Safely Back Home, is a great way to protect your family member. I would recommend everyone to take advantage of this service. Paul and his crew were tremendously helpful and friendly when we attended their event, and had our T-Shirts printed in no time. Thank you!
Thank you so much for offering the Safely Back Home event providing free imprints of my phone number and your logo on my son Dillon's clothing. I feel much safer with this information on his clothing. I appreciate your kindness, generosity and patience. Thanks again,
