Tracking specialist AMI Group has launched a state-of-the-art tracking device designed for the elderly and those living with dementia and Alzheimer’s.

The Guardian+ tracking system is smaller than a car key fob and can be easily fitted onto a lanyard, key ring or individual.

Peter Stockton, operations director of AMI Group, said: “The great advantage of this device is that it can be tailored to each individual’s needs and it can assist in times of trouble such as wandering emergencies.

“It can offer huge benefits for the elderly and people with dementia or Alzheimer’s, especially if it is introduced early on in their care. It can enable people to live independently for longer, reduce stress on both carers and the individuals themselves and potentially enhance their quality of life.”

Using GPS tracking, the system enables relatives or carers to maintain contact at all times with care home residents.

The system gives people the opportunity to continue with activities they would otherwise have to give up and gives relatives and carers more confidence about the safety and comfort of the individuals they are caring for.

Guardian+ is water proof and tamper proof and can be accessed via computer or mobile phone.
