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.

Senior GPS Trackers That Offer More

senior_driverOver the past decade, tracker devices that utilize GPS and cellular technology have been used for a number of different applications related to enhancement of personal safety. These consumer GPS applications include monitoring of senior citizens and tracking of children. How the most common of these tracker devices work is through the use of a GPS bracelet that constantly omits locational data. The locational data, which can be viewed from any computing system hooked up to the Internet, provides real-time GPS coordinates superimposed over a satellite mapping program. This gives parents, family members or caregivers a simple yet technologically advanced method to safeguard loved ones. The only shortcoming with many of the GPS bracelets on the market is that they lacked full water protection capabilities. That is of course until now!

GPS bracelets on the market typically are only designed to be water-resistant. Although the term water-resistant can be somewhat subjective, one thing is for sure and that is GPS tracker bracelets cannot be worn in the shower. This is because the term water-resistant refers to a tracker device being able to function under conditions where light splashing of water is present. The water exposure from a shower would simply be too much for a GPS tracking system that is only water-resistant to withstand. This is a huge concern for families using GPS bracelets for senior tracking.

"The primary feedback concern we received from our buyers is that they needed a GPS bracelet that was completely waterproof", a sales representative for Tracking System Direct explained. "With so many of our tracking bracelets being used for senior monitoring, buyers requested that the tracker device must be waterproof so that the senior wearing the GPS bracelet could take a shower with the device on. We sent this feedback to our engineering team, and now believe we will have something on the market for consumers that meets their needs very soon."

Waterproof GPS Bracelets Debut

Tracking System Direct has been working closely with GPS monitoring bracelet engineers to develop a tracking bracelet that offers complete water protection. Although the process has been long and arduous, Tracking System Direct is proud to announce that the development of a GPS bracelet fully waterproof has been successful, and that the new personal tracking solution should be debuting before the first of the year! Ideal for personal monitoring situations such as senior GPS tracking, the new bracelet will offer more reliability for consumers.
