Caregivers are certainly under constant stress, with the heightened sense of awarenessa needed to protect those individuals prone to wandering.

Advances in technology have unleashed the power of GPS tracking on some very important solutions for those caregivers. Personal GPS tracking devices are now small enough to wear or care in pockets, purses, etc.
How GPS Tracking works
A GPS device is attached to the person throughout the day. The device can be worn or carried depending on the individual situation. The caregiver can log into there PC to draw a safe-zone on a map. This zone is downloaded into the GPS device. If the wearer of the device leaves the safe-zone, the GPS device will alert the caregiver and the device’s location will appear on the map. Th caregiver can then direct people as to the whereabouts of the wanderer.
