Reasons our GPS Tracker is Great for Tracking Elderly Relatives

Your elderly relative won't have to do anything

Don't worry about having to teach them anything - all they need to do is wear it (whether as a keyfob, a pendant, or worn in a velcro pouch). It texts GPS locations automatically and discretely, and answers calls (if you call it) automatically after a buzz.  

It's tamperproof, waterproof & discrete

One thing that can be a problem with GPS tracking for elderly patients is accidental switch-offs or water damage. Not with our discrete GPS Tracker! It can't easily be switched off, and can be dropped in a puddle or taken into the shower without damage. Even if your elderly relative manages to damage the outer casing, we're able to easily and quickly repair that for you. 

Know where your elderly relative is at all times

By sending a simple text message to the Stray Star GPS Tracker that your elderly relative is carrying, you can know their location via an instant text reply. You can also keep an eye on them online, by logging into a website (free to use, just requires setting up). 

Know if your elderly relative wanders too far, falls, or needs help

Our Stray Star GPS Tracker will send you an immediate alert notifications, based on your settings. If your relative needs help, they will need to press the SOS button on the front, which then triggers texts and phone calls to designated carers (can also be deactivated). 

Access for different carers & relatives of the elderly person

The GPS Tracker isn't limited to just one person - you can share access for locations with as many people as you need to. You can also set up to five people to receive varying alerts.

Super Cheap to Use! 

There are no hidden fees, costs or subscriptions - you're in full control and only pay for the SIM usage from the device itself (which is only 5p per text with PAYG). 

“Brilliant! Thanks very much. We’re currently away with our Dad staying in a hotel and its worked and helped us twice already. Its an absolute relief and piece of mind having the tracker”Gary, 2015

Tracking elderly relatives can be hugely helpful - and could even save their life. 

If you have an elderly parent or grand parent who lives alone, then investing in a personal GPS Tracker for elderly care is a terrific idea. 

Because its not just about using GPS for tracking where the elderly person is. They might have a tendency to wander, to be at risk of falling, becoming confused, or needing some extra reassurance that help is available. Our device offers assistance for all these scenarios and more. Simply receiving the occasional call goes a long way to providing some confidence that someone is there who cares. 

You have the option to call the elderly person at any time, to check where they are, how they are, and have a little chat to let them know that someone is there. The device answers automatically, so you can simply shout across the room if they don't happen to be wearing it. 

Of course, in the unfortunate situation that your elderly relative becomes diagnosed with dementia, then GPS Tracking for dementia & Alzheimer's is even more important. 

Over the years we've heard from many happy customers who have used used our devices for tracking elderly relatives:
