Mobile GPS Tracker Alarms

Mobile alarms for the elderly are the latest development in independent living and assistive technology for elderly Britons. Mobile alarms for the elderly provide protection for the wearer anywhere they are, both at home and away from it. Mobile elderly alarms mean that wherever the wearer is they are protected. They are just as safe taking a walk, going to the shops or gardening as they are inside their own home. Easy to use modern GPS tracking technology also means that the wearer can be located quickly in the event of an emergency, when they are away from the home.

Traditional personal alarms for elderly people have been available since the 1980’s and the technology has not changed much since then. Operating on a system that has a base unit attached to a telephone landline, the user wears a remote pendant alarm button that they can trigger in the event of an emergency.

Enhanced Protection with an Elderly GPS Tracker

There are a large number of elderly people who now live alone and an increasing proportion of them are now developing some form of dementia. An early sign of dementia is that sufferers start to wander and that can especially be a concern for their loved ones.

A personal GPS tracker can be the answer to this problem, enabling you to always know where a person is and that they are unharmed. A GPS monitor for the elderly in Australia reduces significantly the chances of a person becoming exposed to danger and helps to protect them from harm.

Features and Benefits of a GPS Locator for Seniors

A GPS tracker for seniors is a highly specialised device that can monitor the location of the wearer wherever they are. These devices are particularly suitable for older people suffering from dementia but can also be used for a young child or for anyone who is particularly vulnerable, such as a lone worker out in a remote location.

A tracker uses GPS technology to be constantly aware of the wearer’s location, so you’ll always know if they wander away from where they’re supposed to be. Depending on the model you choose, a GPS tracker for an older person may have several features:

  • Fall detection that can determine if the wearer has fallen, triggering a GPS alarm that will alert a family member or a response centre
  • Two-way communication so you can talk to the wearer from a distance in order to offer reassurance
  • A panic button that can be pressed if there are problems or if the wearer is anxious about anything and needs to be reassured
  • Water-resistant so the tracker can be worn even when the user is washing or showering
  • Doesn’t need a telephone landline or connection to a mobile phone since the tracker connects automatically to the most reliable phone signal
  • It’s totally reliable and robust, so it can withstand the odd knock, and with a long-life battery so it won’t fail when you need it
  • Multiple devices now have inbuilt GPS smart watches, duress pendants or emergency bracelets.

While unquestionably a very useful device, still to this day, in-home personal alarms for elderly people do have their limitations:

  • The wearer is only protected at home, and only when their pendant is in range with the base unit
  • Parts of the wearers home (e.g. if they live in a large home or have traditional thick walls) may be out of range and therefore unprotected
  • The wearers garden may be out of range and therefore unprotected
  • Standard personal alarms for elderly people do not allow two-way communication through the pendant so if you are not close to the base unit you will not be able to speak to the respondent and know help is on the way

Get the best in safety and security. The SureSafeGO ‘Anywhere’ Alarm with GPS tracking offers protection:

  • at home
  • in the garden
  • away from the home
  • has two-way communication when a call is answered

Reduce Worries with a GPS Locator for Seniors

Elderly relatives living on their own can be a source of worry, especially if they are frail or disabled in some way. And that worry only increases if dementia starts to take hold since the dangers become greater.

The problem is that elderly people often want to retain their independence, but their relatives may not live near enough to attend to them if they have problems. One of our GPS trackers is the obvious solution since it means you can always know where they are and will be alerted if they get into difficulties.

Contact us today and we can help you choose the GPS tracker that will provide complete reassurance. Once it’s in use, you will never again need to worry about where your relatives are, if they’ve fallen or are panicking, or just needing to talk. It enables you and them to get on with your lives without unnecessary concern.

Built In Fall & Movement Detection

What’s more, SureSafe Go has built in fall detection. This means that if a wearer should fall and be unable to press the alarm button e.g. a stroke or loss of consciousness, the fall detector alarm senses this and activates the system automatically. The alarm will also activate if the user has not moved for an extended period of time.

Other mobile elderly alarms on the market that use mobile phone technology are different to the SureSafeGO. Other mobile elderly alarms can require the wearer to be able to access their mobile phone, which could be in a bag or pocket, in order to activate it. The chances are that if the wearer is in distress e.g. heart attack, stroke or similar that they will not be in a position to fumble around to first find, and then activate the alarm.

The SureSafeGO ‘Anywhere’ Alarm is a water-resistant elderly personal alarm that is always in reach should an emergency occur. A pendant that allows a simple touch of the button to raise the alarm and get the help that is needed. Read more about our smart watch for seniors: the SureSafeGO ‘Anywhere’ Alarm.
