Dementia & Alzheimer’s
Dementia GPS Tracker
Aging adults and more often, elderly with dementia can occasionally feel lost or confused, feelings that may cause them to leave their home in search of something they may have a fixation on.. and old home or friend, maybe even a shop they had fond memories of. This is dementia wandering. It is a common but potentially dangerous symptom of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia in elderly.
If your loved one wanders, a GPS tracker for dementia can help you find them quickly — and prevent emergencies and dangerous situations.
