GPS Dementia Trackers are an ideal way to protect those with dementia that often find themselves getting lost and confused.
At Back2you we have a large range of GPS tracking devices designed to give family reassurance and give the user freedom to carry on with regular day to day activities. From GPS Watcher Trackers to GPS Trackers with SOS buttons, we are sure we can help you find the perfect tracker for you.
How A Personal GPS Tracker Help
Dementia shouldn’t restrict a persons freedom and prevent them from living an enjoyable life. By using a GPS Tracker it can allow the user much greater freedom as they are only a quick press of button away from calling for help. Our trackers can have up to 3 admin numbers installed; if an alert is sent these 3 numbers will be contacted. Our trackers can send alerts if the SOS button is pressed, a fall is detected or if the person leaves or enters a certain area. Our dementia trackers are also capable of 2 way communication, this is especially useful if the user is in harm or is lost.
Our Guardian Angel GPS Tracker is our most popular elderly tracking device. Used by councils and retirement homes across the UK these trackers offer maximum safety. With their small design they are perfect to go on a lanyard, key ring or even to be placed inside a jacket pocket. The GPS tracker comes set up complete with £15 credit and works off a text message based system. To receive the location of the tracker you would simply text the unit “loc” and a text message would be sent to your phone with a link to google maps. Just open the link and you will receive the trackers precise location. This specific unit features a large SOS button which can be pressed to ring any admin numbers set. If you’re looking for a dementia tracker offering maximum protection this is the ideal device for you.
The Guardian Angel GPS Watch Tracker is a state of the art watch tracking device. As well as being a fully functioning watch, the GPS tracker has a large range of tracking features. The user can get full route history of where the tracker has been along with it current location. Geo-fences can be easily set up that will alert you once the tracker has left or entered a specific area. If you’re worried about your loved one walking too far or getting on a bus away from town then this becomes a necessity.
If you wish to speaker to the wearer simply call the watch from your phone and you’re able to have a 2 way communication with them. The watch tracker comes with an easy to follow app which can be downloaded on any smart phone. If your loved one would prefer a watch rather than our regular elderly person tracker then this may be solution.
Is pressing buttons a worry for you? We have found that many people living with dementia would prefer a GPS tracking device without any button that could be accidentally pressed. To supply this demand we have introduced the Guardian Angel Tamper Proof Tracker. This personal GPS tracker works very similarly to our regular elderly person tracker. Working off a text message system all commands and location requests are sent by text. This tracker like the others, is capable of 2 way communication if help is needed. This device is ideal for going on a wrist so comes complete with a wrist strap as well as the option for tamper proof straps. If you wish for a tracking device without any button but still want ultimate protection, then the Tamper Proof Tracker is the perfect choice.
