FAQS Product - GPS Tracker

  • Do I need to pay for the SIM card costs?

    No, all ongoing costs are including in the subscription. This includes the 24/7 monitoring and a multi-network SIM chip. A charging unit is also included.

    The Dementia Locate can even be used throughout the European Union at no additional subscription cost.

  • Do you provide specialist support for customers living with dementia or Alzheimer's disease?

    Our 24 hour Emergency Resolution team are staffed by highly trained operators who understand the challenges of caring for people with dementia, Alzheimer's or mental impairment. They have a proven track record of finding people with dementia.

    Taking Care are committed to being a 'Dementia Friendly' company and we are a member of the Exeter Dementia Action Alliance. We have a dementia staff training programme and our own Dementia Champions.

    The Dementia Locate is accurate to around 10 metres and updated every 4 minutes so our Emergency Resolution team can accurately locate the GPS tracker.

    The dementia GPS tracker is small and lightweight and can be carried in a pocket, as a key fob, worn as a pendant or put in a bag. The GPS device measures 60mm x 44mm (at the widest point) x 14mm and weighs just 40 grams.

  • How do family members view the location of the tracking device?

    You can view the current GPS tracker location and location history through a secure website. Access to this website will be provided by Mindme after you have ordered the GPS tracker.

  • How long does the battery last?

    The design of the device is simple, with no confusing lights or SOS button, which helps to prolong the battery life. The GPS tracker will operate up to 48 hours. It is easy to charge using the simple ‘drop in’ charging unit provided. A warning email can be sent when the battery is down to 10% capacity.
