Problematic wandering is a very real condition often caused by conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, Dementia, Autism, or Traumatic Brain Injuries, and it is also a serious concern.
Currently over 100 million people need to be monitored for wandering according to the 2013 World Alzheimer’s Report. 60% of these people will get “lost” at least once. 70% will get “lost” 3 or more times. Worse yet, if these people are not located within 24 hours, 46% of them will sustain serious injuries or become a fatality.
Perhaps you are an individual or family caregiver for someone who is confused and has wandered off already. You may own a business dealing directly with the care of those with these conditions, or a business that recognizes how these problems impact your employees and your business bottom line.
I’m here to tell you both that the GPS Smart Sole is a NEW, EFFECTIVE, solution to consider. As a long time advocate for seniors and other vulnerable individuals, I have studied many products, seen them in use, and until 2014, I had never seen such an innovative product that addresses problematic wandering without infringing upon personal dignity.
