GPS tracking for Alzheimer’s patients

keruve_alzheimer_gps-2
Vision Localization Systems and CEAFA (Spanish Confederation of Relatives of Alzheimer’s) just unveiled a new and improved GPS tracking system for Alzheimer patients and their families called Keruve 2010. Keruve 2010 is made up of two parts. The base station which helps you locate where the patient is, and the super sleek wrist watch that actually looks pretty stylish too.

Different from their previous version, this GPS locator is a lot more discrete and comes in three gentleman models (classic, sports), two lady models, and even a unisex model – wrist watch without any compromise in functionality.

The device relies on four different tracking systems which includes GPS-SBAS (<2.5m), a special indoor positioning system (10-40m), VisionCellid (200-500m), and T-GSM (200m-1500m), and has a feature called “multicoverage” which use the sum of all GSM networks available in each country.

The base station has a 4.2″ screen, display streets with large letters, and has an ergonomic design. We don’t have any information on how much this GPS tracking system from Alzheimer’s patients will cost but it can’t be that cheap.

    My name is Kathy and I am the full time caregiver for my eighty one year-old Dad who has Alzheimer’s and lives with me in North Carolina.

    When my Mom died in 2004 and Dad moved in with me, I had no idea what to do. But day by day, I found ways to cope, and even enjoy having my Dad with me.

    So I started writing a blog at http://www.KnowItAlz.com, which shows the “lighter” side of caring for someone with dementia.

    After a while, I added over 100 pages of helpful information and tips for caregivers. We even have a Chat room so caregivers can communicate with each other from home. Art and music are a very large part of my Dad’s therapy.

    Please pass this link along to anyone you feel would enjoy it.

    Thanks!
    Kathy Hatfield

    These sort of devices can prove to be invaluable for Alzheimer’s patients, as well as the elderly. For teen drivers, a GPS-enabled tracking device may also be a good choice for a parent’s piece of mind. To be able to monitor a vehicle in real-time can be such a relief for most parents or for family members of the elderly.

    I do understand and commend the research of all such devices for alzheimer patients.
    My Husband was diagnosed withearly-onset of this dreadful disease….he is only 53. He has been quite depressed and frustrated in the past 4 months and has wandered off many a times for hours away from home. He did it once at 11pm at night and after 3 hours of 5 cop cars and half a dozen neighbor and family cars looking for him, he was finally located. Since his is an early-onset and probably in the mild-medium stage, he was able to tuen off his phone and thus we could not track him using the GPS service from AT&T. My questions is to all the experts out there:
    Is there any device out there that some one as young as my husband is not able to take off or switch off which totally defeats the purpose in helping to find or track him?
    I would greatly appreciate any feedback on this.
    Thanks
