Personal tracking device

Yesterday my husband told me he was going for a little walk to the top of our street and back. Almost four hours later, after having contacted local police who had started searching for him, a black cab pulled up to the house with my husband in it. He had wandered all the way down to Park Lane (central London). I think it's time to get a personal tracking device for him. Does anyone know if such a device exists and where I can get one?

Many thanks.

I'd like to wish everyone on this forum peaceful holidays and a good new year.

You can get tracking devices and other useful things through your local telecare team for free. Contact social services/ OT. We got a Buddi for free and they are expensive if you have to buy them.

my husband has had a "mind-me" tracker for about six weeks now. it has proved a god send and certainly brings peace of mind. i can see where he is on my computer and get a text if he goes out of bounds.

Hi Cloverland

Would you mind PM me as well. I don't think I can survive another one of these.

Thanks

Could you inbox me too please - my Dad got separated from my Mum yesterday and was missing in the dark freezing weather for nearly 7 hours. Police, family, neighbours even the bus drivers were all looking - luckily he was found and was OK but I need all the help I can get now in case this ever happens again.

GPS tracking devices

I wish every authority issued or gave information where devices are available. When an adult goes wandering especially this time of year these gadgets are such a god send.

The one we use for dad is approved and supported by several police forces. If an alert is triggered the police treat this as a priority to recover the person back to their safe environment.

I'm happy for anyone to in box me for further information.

Moderator note:

Can I just mention: it's perfectly acceptable to mention a product you have found helpful on the main forum (as long as you aren't involved with the company in question in any way). The only issue we have is when posters find a product useful and then decide to post to a number of different threads (even going to the extent of finding older threads and posting to them) in order to promote the product.

You have to contact social services who can assess the need and refer you to the telecare team.
