There are 37.5 million people in the world diagnosed with dementia, 15.4 million of whom reside in USA. It is expected that as the world’s population ages, and in particular the baby boomers achieve retirement, that these numbers will increase by at least 30% per annum. Sixty per cent of people with dementia will wander in their lifetime. Wandering has been identified as the single most stressful event that leads to family members making the difficult decision to seek help in the form of institutional care. The loss of familiar surroundings and possessions has been identified as one of the most stressful events in the life of a dementia adult. If Freedom can stop just one wandering event it will have paid for itself several times over in both emotional and financial terms.
Wanderers will escape, Staff may not notice, Emergency services will become involved in the search. Consequently, adults with dementia, and children with special needs are typically secured behind locked doors and window bars, Freedom multi use protects all residents within a whole facility and grounds with a network of base stations. A wandering event is immediately identified and their location sent to the designated carer. So within a matter of minutes they can be safely recovered without the involvement of emergency services.
Long term illness need not require long term hospital care. With the support of tele-health solutions and homecare it can be safe to be cared for in the comfort of your own home. However, RF based solutions can only protect you within range of the home base station. Freedom is different, it has a panic button, it is a mobile GSM & GPS device worn on the wrist; help is only a button press away wherever you are 24-7.
1-100 new born children will feature on the autism spectrum. Children with special needs tend to wander and may be non verbal. Keeping children safe at home, school or play can be hard work especially if they “run”. Freedom is a discreet wandering detection solution; we take the worry out of watching your children 24-7 by alerting and locating them if they leave your safe area.
Today’s workforce is mobile; as an employer you are required to keep employees safe, this includes knowing where they are in an emergency.
