Wandering is a risk associated with many conditions, such as autism spectrum disorder, Down syndrome, and dementia (which can result from Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, head injuries, and Parkinson’s disease). These conditions can cause distress to loved ones. Those with special needs can be hard to monitor and often wander off.  This can be a very frightening experience for loved ones and caregivers.  

Fortunately, Trackoko carries GPS locator watch models and devices to track loved ones and those in your care at all times. At Trackoko, we help you learn which device is right for your needs.  Selecting the ideal GPS tracking watch or device for loved ones with special needs can help. Patients and those in your care that have memory loss or conditions that require monitoring their location can be challenging. Since there are differences between Trackoko devices, it’s important to know which special needs GPS tracker will work best to ensure the safety and security of your loved ones. 

Wandering may be caused by some essential need, like having to go to the bathroom, or being thirsty or hungry. Keeping your loved one comfortable can make a big difference. Wandering may be caused by side-effects from medications, or delusions and hallucinations that come with dementia.
