You can reduce the risks associated with wandering by incorporating trackable technology. SafetyNet Tracking Systems was developed to help public safety agencies bring loved ones with cognitive conditions home when they go missing. Once an individual is reported missing, SafetyNet is notified and activates their device. Upon activation, the device emits a continuous radio frequency signal for rescue teams to track. If you have a loved one who is prone to wandering, you can learn more by visiting http://safetynettracking.com or calling 727-844-7781.
