CARA Partners Municipal Services Office (MSO) To Launch Missing Person Alerts In OneService App

In February 2023, CARA achieved a significant milestone with a strategic partnership forged between Dementia Singapore and the Municipal Services Office (MSO). The collaboration of the CARA and MSO’s OneService mobile apps aim to provide holistic support for the dementia community in Singapore.

When loved ones with dementia goes missing, caregivers can now make a report using the CARA app’s ‘Report Missing Person’ feature. All CARA members will then receive a push notification, enabling them to view the Report and keep a lookout for the missing person.

For each Missing Person Report submitted via the CARA app, the same information will be broadcasted via a push notification to OneService users who reside within the town of the lost person’s last seen location. Users are also notified when the missing person is found.

With a larger population reach of more than 500,000 OneService app users, the chances of a quicker reunion with families are now higher.

How It Looks:
