Does anyone have any experience of personal trackers for dementia?

Asked by

After her third ‘walk about’ I need to buy a personal tracker for my mother who has dementia. I’m looking at a key fob style one as she always takes her keys with her. Does anyone have any experience fo using one? Where did you buy it?

    Hi Gaynor – you might try http://www.unforgettable.org which is a dementia specialist site selling products like trackers. You could also try Alzheimer’s Society in your Mum’s area? Or the social services department of her local council – who should be able to assess her condition and help you sort out care and support.

Coronavirus Support Group

In light of the current situation with Coronavirus we’ve created a group for people supporting elderly relatives at risk of Coronavirus.

A chance to virtually meet others in the same position, ask questions and share your experience in these strange and uncertain times.

It’s going to be a big team effort to get through this.
