GPS and Alzheimer’s

    Alzheimer’s is a disease that causes patients to wander and they often get lost. Patients often have difficulty remembering their name and even where they live.  Caregivers are often using tracking technology in order to keep Alzheimer’s patients safe as well as provide peace of mind. 60% of patients with Alzheimer’s exhibit wandering behavior. This is a serious concern since the Alzheimer’s Association estimates that up to half of wanderers will suffer death or serious injury if not found within 24 hours. Studies have been conducted that conclude a rapid increase in lost male Alzheimer’s patients varying by state. Alzheimer’s is a serious disease and can result in disorientation as well as a compulsive desire for a patient believing that they have to be at a certain location even if they don’t know where that location is. Patients in clinics or even in a home may have a desire to go back to their childhood home because they lack a sense of reality. Alzheimer’s is a serious disease that requires the proper treatment and latest technology to locate a patient.
