GPS Tracking Systems Help The Elderly

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.

Protecting Personal GPS Tracker Devices

water-resistantPersonal tracking applications have expanded in growth over the past five years as families seek a technologically advanced method to safeguard children with special needs and/or parents showing symptoms of memory illness. With the price of personal GPS systems continuing to fall and monthly data plan options becoming more flexible, investment in sophisticated location-based GPS bracelets is now an option for consumers working on a tight family budget. Throw in the fact that the online platform and system features are continually evolving to be more user-friendly for the consumer, and the end result is a piece of technology that essentially anyone can operate. Although GPS bracelets engineered for personal monitoring have the ability to identify where any person is located in real-time, some users damage their devices by not understanding the water-resistant abilities of that device.

Understanding Water-Resistance

The simplest way to think of a product or GPS unit that is classified as water-resistant is that the product or GPS unit can continue to function properly when in contact with light splashing or misting of water. Basically, the very minimal amount of exposure to water does not damage the item. However, it is very important to recognize that water-resistant is not waterproof, and that heavy exposure to water or moisture can impact the tracker. This is why GPS data loggers such as GPS Tracking Key should be placed in something as simple and crude as a plastic ziplock bag if the user plans on attaching the tracking unit underneath a target vehicle.

GPS Bracelet Water-Resistance

Like the passive line of GPS systems, the personal GPS monitoring bracelet offered through Tracking System Direct only offers water-resistant capabilities. The device is absolutely not waterproof. This is very important to note, especially if the GPS bracelet will be worn by a senior citizen throughout the day. This is because a family member or caregiver will need to make certain that the GPS bracelet is removed before the elderly person suffering from Alzheimer's or Dementia gets into the shower. The reason for this is that the constant exposure to moisture from the shower can potentially result significant damage to the device. Damage that is not covered under the one-year manufacturer's warranty. Therefore, the GPS bracelet will need to be removed prior to the person entering the shower, or some form of cast will need to be created in order to waterproof the personal tracker.

GPS bracelets are amazing tools that can enhance personal safety of loved ones. However, like many forms of technological products, the real-time GPS trackers have some limitations. One of those limitations is the bracelet not being waterproof. But if a person takes the necessary precautions ahead of time, they will find that GPS bracelets are valuable GPS tracking systems that can stand the test of time, offering live locational information that might end up saving someone's life.
