GPS Trackers Designed For Elderly Care
One of the biggest problems facing our senior population is memory-loss and memory-related diseases. Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, the more common and widely discussed memory-related problems affecting our seniors, are degenerative problems that continue to cause and inflict pain on the people suffering from the illnesses. Although memory-related illness impacts individuals and families differently, there is no denying the stress that the diseases can cause. Thankfully, modern technology has been able to offer some small comfort through the use of GPS trackers designed specifically for senior monitoring.
Real-time GPS trackers such as the LandAirSea SilverCloud GPS offer families and seniors dealing with memory-related problems the comfort of position-based data. What position-based data can do if let families know the exact location of a senior who may be lost or wandering. The GPS tracking technology is either permanatly installed to the elderly person’s vehicle, or carried as a portable personal tracking device.
"Although many of the modern GPS trackers such as the SilverCloud GPS were primarily designed for fleet tracking and vehicle management applications, the devices can still be utilized as a personal monitoring solution", explained a GPS Tracker Shop representative who specializes in personal safety technology. "We believe that a senior showing any signs of memory-related illness should have a real-time GPS tracker installed to their vehicle so family members can oversee complete driving activity in precise detail to observe for potential dangers."
Senior safety is a topic that concerns every family; this is because of the prevalence of memory-related problems affecting our elderly population. Although modern medicine has not created a solution to cure Alzheimer’s or dementia, modern technology does offer families the ability to increase senior safety through the process of GPS tracking.
Often times family members will joke about grandpa losing his keys all the time, or retelling the same stories he has told for decades. Although these little things may seem comical for some individuals, they may represent a much darker picture. They may represent the warning signs of memory-related illness. If you or your family believe someone close to you may be showing some of the warning signs associated with dementia or Alzheimer’s, we ask that you contact your local doctor and/or the Alzheimer’s Organization for more information.
