Older adults are at an increased risk of developing cognitive impairments like Alzheimer’s Parkinson’s and Dementia, often causing them to struggle with memory loss and muscle weakness. Older adults living with these impairments may get confused while completing simple tasks and wander off, losing track of where they’ve gone and forgotten where they are. This can make them more likely to trip and fall, putting them in physical danger in what is, to them, an unfamiliar environment. This concerns many families who worry their loved one could wander off and hurt themselves without anyone knowing.
In today’s digital world, there are many technologies available to help give aging adults and their loved ones peace of mind about their safety. One technology families are turning to help care for their older loved ones is geotracking. Born from the advances of GPS technology geotrackers are simple, cost-effective, undetectable ways of monitoring your loved one from a distance, allowing them to live as independently as possible while still under the guidance of a watchful eye.
