There are now new solutions to address wandering and help keep your loved one safe and secure. One way to end wandering in seniors with Alzheimer’s is to use a life-saving location device. Using GPS tracking, these devices allow seniors to be found quickly and safely. Here is a list of ten lifesaving location devices for seniors who have Alzheimer’s or dementia.

Caring for a person with Alzheimer’s disease can have high physical, emotional, and financial costs.​Becoming well-informed about the disease is one important strategy.
