Tracking devices for people with dementia
Recently I have been researching tracking devices available for people with dementia. The idea came about after I saw an article in a local Dutch newspapers suggesting that people with dementia could now freely walk the streets without the risk of becoming disorientated to place - or lost - and unable to find their way home. Basically the person has a chip placed somewhere in their clothing, shoes or watch that is registered with a track and trace service. The service is able to remotely read the chip and identify the person's location.
Wonderful technology to prolong independence in people with dementia! Here is a link to a blog post written by Caitlin Burm for Senior Living Blog
