Tracker for those living with Dementia
and Vulnerable Individuals

Last week we told you about how we were hoping to trial a tracker device for those living with Dementia and those who are classed as being vulnerable.

We are pleased to say that one of our Support Workers has been experimenting to see how it works. 

It is not only beneficial for those that are vulnerable but also has a multitude of uses. It can be easily slipped in children's school bags or whilst they are out playing. It can be clipped onto anything such as a belt, key ring, pet collar, placed in the car etc. It also has an SOS button so if anyone is needing help they just have to press it to alert their contact.


We have been trialling the V-Multi-tracker supplied by Vodafone which costs £45 and £2 per month. 
nb. we have been informed that this can only be used on the Vodafone network
Unfortunately, Inspire Doncaster is unable to provide this directly, but we can assist anyone who may be interested in obtaining one.

Further information on the V-Multi Tracker can be found by clicking HERE

There are quite a few devices on the market and should you have any concerns about the pros and cons, the website Unforgettable has published an interesting article that may allay some of the fears - "Tracking Devices and Dementia - What you need to know"

If you require any further information or help, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will give you our honest opinion on our trial.
