GPS Finds Missing Seniors

Last week the Halifax “Star”, a newspaper in Nova Scotia, Canada, had a story about a pilot program the police department is using to track missing seniors who have dementia or Alzheimer’s. The program actually started because seniors frequently wander away from their care facilities. Recently one man wandered away and died from exposure from the elements.

Canadian authorities claim this is the first program of its type anywhere using GPS tracking systems to find missing seniors.

You can read the whole story HERE. The story went on to say if missing seniors are not found in the first 24 hours, the consequences can be deadly.

The story is an example of how creative people can be in using GPS systems for tracking people. They have been used for years to track convicted criminals. The Wolf Conan Real Time Tracker can be used in similar situations.
