The location device technology with GPS tracking has introduced a new way for caregivers and families to prevent wandering emergencies with loved ones.

Tracking devices for patients using GPS (global positioning system) are assistive technologies that can help to promote safe walking by alerting caregivers when a person with dementia 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 for the patient. 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. Patients with dementia who wander are at increased risk of injury or death from traffic accidents, hypothermia, dehydration, falls, fractures, and drowning. Dementia patients also impose a financial burden on family caregivers incurring substantial healthcare and societal cost, such as police and emergency response services to help search for missing people.


GPS Tracking Watches:
  • May reduce the time required to find missing individuals with dementia and the costs associated with search and rescue operations.
  • May increase the independence, autonomy, and freedom of some people with early- to moderate-stage dementia, and reduce caregiver anxiety and stress.
  • May help caregivers and emergency responders to quickly locate and ensure the safety of people who wander.
  • Make people with dementia feel more secure and allow them to be more independent.
  • Provide reassurance and relieve caregiver anxiety. Wandering adds more confusion to the lives of those already dealing with a disorienting disease, and leads many people with Alzheimer’s or dementia into unsafe situations.

GPS tracking devices for dementia are an increasingly affordable option for families and caregivers trying to make wandering safer. However not everyone with dementia 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.

MX-LOCare GPS Tracking Watch

This GPS tracking watch is the state of the art device on the market that we have tested. It comes with 3 colorful bands and a secure locking device. It is sized like a normal watch but contains great features for tracking a patient with Alzheimer’s, dementia or memory loss. It does not contain a port for charging like a typical phone but rather a magnetic piece that when it touches the device allows it to charge. Please contact the developer’s service department at 1-877-980-4477 with any questions before purchasing it from our site. We guarantee the lowest price on the market as we include free shipping and no activation fee in our pricing.

Freedom Watch By Lok8u

This GPS tracking watch is highly recommended for those that are much more sedentary. When the device is located within 100 feet of the receiver it is on radio frequency mode which draws a minor charge from the battery. This is why it can last up to 30 days between charges. The base station can be located at a home or facility or even fit in a pocket or purse of a caregiver when walking with the patient. The greatest asset of this system is the long battery life of the tracking watch.

Customer service, given directly by the developer, is of the highest quality. We can recommend that you call the service center prior to ordering to ask any questions. Please view all 3 videos on our web site by clicking the product page HERE. Robin who is seen in the third video will be happy to help you with any questions prior to ordering. He can be reached at 1-888-423-1887.

We highly recommend this product for its’ service, ease to wear, and battery life.

Historically it has done business with a broad spectrum of government agencies, tracking and locating contracted employees and in some cases felons. Their TriLoc GPS Watch is locked on the wrist and are made of such a superior material that it is almost impossible to separate the device from the person. We have never had a situation where the band was separated from the watch or person. In addition this device has fall detection in case of a falling incident.

It is easy to use and Safetracks GPS offers great customer service. Please contact Safetracks customer service at 1-877-761-4477 for your technical questions and they will be happy to help.
