Dementia sufferers often feel vulnerable and in need of reassurance and support. Their family need to do everything they can to help and assure the person so that they can retain their own sense of identity and independence.
Preventing wandering of dementia sufferers is most important as wandering can result in them becoming confused and lost. Having an alarm in place can reduce this worry and risk.
Dementia alarms use a door sensor connected to a base unit. The alarm is activated if a person opens a door during a pre-set time. A wireless signal is sent to the base unit which then can be directed to one of our Home Response Responders.
Quick action can be taken to eliminate the risk of any wandering.
