GPS Tracking For Elderly Care

Managing the care of a loved one that requires frequent supervision is a tough task. Individuals diagnosed with dementia and Alzheimer’s in particular, are prone to behavior such as wandering. This can happen just once, but for many it is a recurring symptom that can show up randomly.

One way to reduce both the stress of not knowing where a loved one could be at a given time, and the search time is to incorporate a GPS tracker into the care program. Trackers that could be attached to a key chain, or a lanyard to be worn around the neck like the Qbit or are a great option. In addition to tracking, it would allow for two way calls from the device to a mobile phone, so you can always check in.

Why GPS Trackers?

Integrating GPS trackers into a care program can offer the peace of mind of knowing right where your patient or loved one is located. If placed on an individual, you would have the ability to track their location from a mobile phone or web browser at any time. For those applications, we would recommend either the Qbit or Micro 420 GPS trackers through Logistimatics.

The size of each of those devices would make them ideal for most applications. You can monitor their location from anywhere, regardless of how far you away you are from the tracker. So whether you’re right on site, or hundreds of miles away, you’ll always know where your trackers are located.

Case Study

A nursing care facility has been tasked with ensuring that the residents with certain neurological diseases, particularly the ones that affect memory, aren’t allowed to leave the facility without supervision. During the residents usual evening bed check, a nursing assistant isn’t able to locate one of the residents that is known to suffer from Alzheimer’s. Knowing that they would be carrying a tracker on their person, the nurse is able to pin point the location of the resident and prevent an incident from occurring before it started.
