Trackers & Object Locators FAQs
There are a few things you can try. Planning activities and maintaining a routine can help avoid unplanned travel. If there is a specific time of day someone is prone to leave the house unexpectedly, plan a regular activity for this time. GPS trackers and locators are able to alert loved ones if a person leaves a familiar area unexpectedly or becomes lost, allowing them to locate the person to reassure and help them.
When a person living with dementia is lost and you are unable to locate them it is recommended you spend no longer than 15 minutes searching the immediate area before contacting the police. Make sure they are aware that the person has dementia.
