We always want to take care of our loved ones, especially those who may no longer be able to take proper care of themselves. Do you have an elderly family member that has dementia or Alzheimer’s disease? If so, you know how difficult it can be to care for them at times.
Beyond managing their care, there are also those scary moments that can occur when your loved one wanders off on their own or gets lost. They aren’t always in their right mind and can get disoriented, potentially leading to a dangerous situation. Fortunately, there is a modern solution and it comes in the form of GPS tracking.
Although many may be perplexed at the idea of using trackers to keep tabs on their loved ones, the method is becoming a fairly substantially common thing as Baby Boomers age and more members of their generation begin to suffer from the effects of these mind-damaging diseases.
As a matter of fact, there are already numerous companies creating newer and smarter GPS trackers to aid in tracking those with Alzheimer’s and dementia. A Place for Mom, a leading company that helps families find senior care solutions, recently discussed some of the many devices on the market and their capabilities, which run the range from tracking to providing alerts if the worn device leaves a certain area.
Many of these devices can fit inside the individual’s shoe or inside of a pendant that they might wear on a regular basis. If they are still driving or have a caretaker who transports them around, there are also options that can be attached to a vehicle. They are simple to use too, easily transmitting a signal from the tracking device to your cellphone and sending you alerts so you can always be ready for action.
At RKJ Investigations, we offer several GPS tracking packages that are designed to keep your loved one’s best interests at heart. They range in price and duration of tracking, but they are all great ways to be sure that those you care most about remain safe and sound.
All packages include the installation of the device and weekly traffic reports, while our more advanced packages also include geofencing, a system that can tell you firsthand if your family member leaves the house or a designated radius. Don’t leave anything to chance. Call RKJ Investigations today at 405-562-6479 to learn more about GPS tracking options to help your elder loved one safe and secure.
