Customer story

John, 73, had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease and went missing on Christmas Day when he went out walking with his family.

John was wearing a Dementia Locate monitored by our Emergency Resolution Team.

His wife, Rosemary, called the Emergency Resolution Team to ask if they could locate her husband.

The Emergency Resolution Team was able to co-ordinate a response from the ambulance service and coastguards.

John was in a distressed state when he was found and was suffering from hypothermia.

Rosemary said, "If John hadn’t been wearing the device around his neck, it would have been very difficult to locate him. If it hadn't been for the people helping us, I dread to think what would have happened."

"I panicked as soon as I realised that John was missing. I cannot explain how much of a relief it is to know that when you have lost someone that there is a way of finding them again."

"The device assists us on a regular basis. For example, if I’m sorting the washing out upstairs and John happens to leave the house for a walk, I know that I will be able to locate him if he doesn’t return."
