People with dementia urged to use tracking devices
- By Dementia Auckland
Recently we were invited to speak to many media outlets about the importance of wearing a GPS tracking device. Many people with dementia have a tendency to wander, and aren’t always able to find their way home easily. They can become disoriented, even in familiar places, and may not always remember their name or address.
If you are concerned about elderly neighbours or loved ones with dementia who go walking by themselves, we would suggest contacting WanderSearch, who have created a simple radio frequency tracking system for people living with a cognitive impairment. See wandersearch.org.nz for more details.
