Dementia Location Tracking - Independence for loved ones

Wandering is a common behaviour associated with dementia and assistive technologies such as dementia location trackers can be used to support people prone to wandering. Other technologies that can help people with dementia to remain independent include dementia telecare devices for the home.  

The problem of wandering in dementia has many associated risks, both emotional and physical.  Finding yourself lost or half dressed in the middle of the night in an unfamiliar environment can be deeply distressing. It can also be extremely stigmatising. Many people with dementia who are not found within one day die or are severely hurt, yet carers are sometimes reluctant to call for help right away. The risk of admission to a care home also increases when a person with dementia gets lost.

The burden of caring for someone with dementia is huge and the worry that a loved one could get lost can lead to a decision that it may no longer be an option to look after a loved one at home. Dementia location tracking devices can ease family members concern and worry about the person they care for. However, if the risk of getting lost is recognised, then simple precautions such as dementia location tracking devices or other assistive technologies may help manage this. 

GPS location trackers are devices that use global positioning systems to determine someone’s location. The technology is about finding people quickly before something happens to them. As long as there is mobile coverage, people can be located anywhere in the world. Dementia location trackers mean people with dementia can be found faster and recover much more quickly. Essentially, dementia location trackers help manage risk. They can be used by anyone who wants to maintain their independence, while also having the reassurance that help is at hand if it is needed.

Our ‘Lola’ Dementia Location Tracking device device enables those who become disorientated or lost to be found quickly. It is a discreet device that can be attached to a keyring or kept around a person's neck. If a person becomes lost they can speak to an operator in our 24/7 CareLink Monitoring Centre in Ireland, simply by pressing a button. Operators can then log in to the system and monitor the whereabouts of the person to coordinate a quick response in the event of an incident. We support thousands of vulnerable people 24 hours a day.
