MindCare carries the best GPS tracking watches for those living with Alzheimer's, Dementia and Autism. We offer these GPS watches at the best price or with a discounted annual service contract.
What makes our watches different? The locking clasp mechanisms. The ONLY approved GPS tracking watches for those with Alzheimer's or Autism should have a locking clasp so that the wearer cannot easily remove it. We have arranged for the watch GPS services to be provided directly with the manufacturers, but MindCare has arranged the best deals on the internet to help you save money or to have your GPS watch covered by insurance.
Even though you will purchase your watch from MindCare, activation and any service contracts will be handled by the manufacturer’s service center once you receive your watch. Use the chart and information below to help you make the right decision!
Located in Canada, Safetracks provides service in the USA and Canada and is one of the finest companies in the business. Historically it has done business with a broad spectrum of government agencies by tracking and locating contracted employees. The TRiLOC GPS Watch is locked onto the wrist for security and are made of highly durable materials. MindCare has not been alerted to a situation where the band was ever separated from person wearing it. In addition this device has fall detection in case of a falling incident. Please be aware that this device is larger than a typical watch and that we are licensed to sell the Safetracks TRiLOC GPS tracking watch in the USA only.
Tracking devices using GPS (global positioning system) are assistive technologies that can help to promote safe walking by alerting caregivers when a person with dementia, Autism or Alzheimer's wanders outside of a defined area, plus providing the geographic coordinates of that person so they can be found more easily and quickly. Mobility and the freedom to walk outdoors are important for maintaining quality of life. Wandering can provide beneficial physical exercise, a sense of personal autonomy, and social contact. The involvement of people with dementia in activities outside of the home can also relieve some of the stress of their caregivers, but as their disease progresses and memory becomes impaired, people with dementia may become lost, even in familiar places. As a result, individuals with dementia can go missing or experience critical incidents when they leave home alone and are unable to find their way back.
People with memory loss may also become lost while driving or taking public transit — where a much larger territory may need to be covered in a search to find them. Those with dementia who wander are at increased risk of injury or death from traffic accidents, hypothermia, dehydration, falls, fractures, and drowning.
GPS tracking devices for dementia and Autism are an increasingly affordable option to help families to prevent wandering. However, not everyone with dementia or Autism wanders or might benefit from a GPS tracking watch. While the devices may be useful to individuals in the earlier stages of dementia — and to their caregivers — for those with an advanced stage, unsupervised walking may not be safe.
