GPS Dementia Tracker - Taking Care

Our dementia tracker is designed to support people who are living with dementia or who have learning difficulties.

The GPS tracker has no confusing lights or buttons to press and can be worn as a pendant or used as a key fob. Family members can get peace of mind from knowing where their loved ones are by logging onto the GPS monitoring website where they can view the current location details and history.

We have 24 hour monitoring centres that have a proven track record of finding people with dementia and can configure the GPS tracker alarm to automatically alert us if the alarm users moves outside of pre-set locations.
