“We purchased a Stray tracker for our Dad who has dementia, in early November. We have been really pleased with the reassurance it gives us as he still lives at home independently but visits my mum daily in the local care home she is a resident in so we are able to check he has arrived safely and has been dropped home at night by his taxi.”Noreen, 2018
Common Uses for our GPS Trackers
Two thirds of dementia patients will go missing at least once this year. If not found within 24 hours, up to half could suffer serious injury or death.
Know WHEN they wander, and WHERE they are.
Our user-friendly Dementia Trackers and Elderly Trackers offer unique flexibility for sending various alerts to multiple carers or relatives, are really easy to set up and extremely cheap to run (typically just £1-3 per month of SIM costs). With eight years of experience we offer plenty of relevant help and information, and take pride in caring for our customers' needs.
Our Dementia Trackers are extremely useful.
When your loved one with dementia or Alzheimer's goes wandering - you have a number of options. First you can set the dementia Tracker ahead of time to alert you if the person with dementia goes wandering too far. Perhaps 100 meters down the road? Receive an instant text alert. Whenever you like, you can text the device for an instant location. If you set up online tracking (for free!) you can log in online to see the route of where they have wandered - which might be useful to learn routine walks. If you wish to speak to the person with dementia or Alzheimer's, you can call the dementia tracker and have a two-way conversation with them - or just listen in to the surroundings. They don't have to do anything, the dementia tracker will answer automatically. There is also an SOS button on the dementia tracker which will send a text and phone call to up to three carers, but if the person with dementia tends to fiddle or is unlikely to remember then this can be disabled without losing other important alert functions. The dementia tracker is also waterproof, tamperproof, can be easily charged via a drop-in cradle, and is incredibly cheap to use. We're sure you'll love it and find it immensely useful!
