The GPS tracking technology that search and rescue teams, police, and firefighters utilize everyday to assist people in need is now available to help families and the elderly suffering from memory-related problems. GPS tracking systems, already having a proven track record of saving lives and assisting families in need, are now designed specifically for monitoring a parent or family member who may be suffering from dementia, Alzheimer's, or another form of memory-related problems. If you have a parent or family member who shows a consistent pattern of forgetful behavior, or may struggle living an independent life, a personal monitoring GPS tracking device will make your life easier and less stressful. A personal monitoring GPS tracking system is extremely valuable because it will alert you or record if an elderly person is:

  • Wandering off or lost in a familiar or unfamiliar location.
  • Safe inside or around their home.
  • Making scheduled doctor visits.

GPS tracking systems can provide certainty, safety, and security that can make the difficult road of memory-loss a little easier and less stressful for everyone involved.

SilverCloud Sync: The Recommended Senior Monitoring Solution

Find A Person, Confirm Locations Traveled, Program Geo-Fences

With a GPS elderly tracking device you will have the ability to watch Grandma or Grandpa's mobility, verify they are staying in a particular area such as home or nursing facility, and all of that information can be accessed anytime because elderly tracking systems can function and operate on a continuous basis. Another beneficial feature that elderly GPS tracking systems have is the ability to set virtual boundaries, or what is known as a "Geo-fence". When an elderly person enters or exits the virtual boundary set by family members an alert will be sent, informing family members that the GPS system has left the predetermined "safe" area. People suffering from Alzheimer's disease frequently wander away or become lost, placing themselves and others in sometimes potentially dangerous situations. The situation can be even more frightening if the elderly person becomes lost in a foreign area or large city.

GPS elderly tracking systems allow families to feel rest assured knowing that they will always be in touch with a family member or parent suffering from memory-related problems. Regardless if the GPS systems application is for additional security or health-related situations, the technology provides relief and comfort to those worried about a parent or family member. Never again will stress and anxiety cultivate from a parent not answering a phone call, or if a doctor's appointment is missed. Having the ability to receive alerts if a loved one enters or leaves a virtual-fenced area, and always having their location accessible by computer is how elderly GPS tracking systems are helping improve lives.

Car Trackers To Help Senior Drivers

GPS Tracker For SeniorsWhen most people think of dangerous motorists they instantly think of teen drivers. And it is true that teens are more high-risk drivers than any other groups of drivers, but seniors are the drivers most likely to be killed or injured in a automobile accident.  Part of this can be attributed to senior drivers having age-related vulnerabilities like medical conditions, slower reaction times or even physical issues such as fragile bones. Regardless, the concern for senior divers in Jackson Township is very real and that is why organizations such as AAA Ohio Auto Club among other safe driving agencies sponsored an event called Keep Seniors Driving Safe. The event focuses on elderly drivers and how prescription drugs, blurred vision and other issues facing seniors can impact safe driving. The Jackson Township safe driving event also discussed the use of car tracking GPS units to enhance senior safety.

Seniors are considered safe drivers (insert joke about any senior driver going 45mph in a 60mph zone), but the Keep Seniors Driving Safely Program still offers significant value to older seniors. According to statistics, there are over 33 million older motorists with licenses i the United States, and the U.S. Census Bureau reports 20% of all motorists will be over the age of 65 by 2030. Therefore, it is important for seniors to understand some of the ways they can increase safe driving behavior.

The event teaches seniors to focus on the simple things they can control to boost driving safety such as checking tire pressure, positioning mirrors, being aware of outside distractions but most importantly having self-awareness. Many seniors drive to doctors appointments and run personal errands, but many times those senior drivers are on medication. Therefore, it is important for all senior drivers to be self-aware of their physical condition and not drive if they are feeling light-headed, dizzy or any other way that could impair therefrom driving safely.

GPS Tracking Devices For Seniors

Many elderly folks wear senior GPS tracking bracelets that offer a panic button feature where they can call out for help in a emergency situation, but families can use this same locational technology to track the vehicle of a senior 24/7. When a senior has a live GPS monitoring system equipped to their automobile, family members in different spots across the country can view how a senior is driving. With this real-time tracking data a family can determine if a senior is driving erratically or getting lost.

What Seniors Say About Safe Driving

Senior motorists understand the world the live in now is not the same as the one that existed when they first got their driver’s licenses. In fact, many seniors have their own concerns about driving, as they feel other motorists are more distracted now than anytime in the past. Many elderly drivers are quick to point out how other motorists will talk on cell phones or send text messages while driving, something that is rarely seen among senior drivers.

For more information on safe driving programs local police and the AAA are available to provide assistance and guide seniors with questions in the right direction
