Using a GPS Tracker for Dementia

The portable Micro Tracker is the ideal solution for individuals suffering from Dementia. It is often difficult to locate people who suffer from Dementia so the use of a GPS Tracker simplifies this issue. The elderly person would just have to carry a GPS Tracker on them at all times, which is small enough to fit inside a pocket or can even be attached to an article of clothing. The portable Micro Tracker lasts for about two and a half weeks on a single charge and features a rechargeable battery. It even has a panic button on the side so the person with Dementia can press that button to notify the caregiver of his/her location in case of an emergency.

The tracking software allows the caregiver to configure perimeters, which can be designated at the elderly member’s house, so if they leave that house they will get a text message sent directly to their phone. The caregiver may track the location at all times using any phone, tablet, or computer. The report history even stores up to six months of data so they can go back and see if the person with Dementia ended up wandering off, which they missed.

The monthly service cost for a real time GPS Tracker is $24.95 with a one time Activation fee of $44.95. The service may be paid on a month to month basis and cancelled at anytime. Contact GPS Tracking Tracker today to place an order and to receive more information.
