Personal Trackers & Elderly GPS Trackers

Personal trackers let us know where you are when you need help. This includes any time the SOS button is pressed, or a fall is detected. They send a map of your location - wherever you are - at home or 'out and about'. Older people find these very reassuring. GPS trackers for the elderly also make great dementia trackers.

GPS Trackers

Feel safe in the knowledge that wherever you are, when the SOS button is pressed or a fall is detected, help will be with you when you need it.

GPS trackers can be incredibly useful for a variety of different people and situations, from elderly people with health risks to lone workers. Unlike a traditional personal alarm that can only work in the home, a fully mobile alarm with GPS tracking can be taken out and used anywhere.

Our personal tracker alarms are packed full of features to help you live independently. In addition to being ‘Go Anywhere’ alarms, all SureSafe mobile alarms are equipped with fall detection, the ability to talk through the pendant and the ability to wear in the shower.

A personal alarm with GPS tracking is also a great, non-invasive option for those looking to keep an eye on their elderly parent, offering the ability to request their location with a simple text message to ensure they are safe.

How does a personal alarm with GPS work?

Wearing a personal alarm with GPS means you can call for help when you need it, no matter where you are.

Our personal GPS trackers use the latest technology to help you locate your loved one when they need help. We all use this type of technology in our day-to-day lives, from mobile phones to cars, smartwatches, and a whole host of other household devices. Using this technology, SureSafe has designed a range of personal alarms that incorporate GPS tracking so we can send help directly to the location of the device when needed.

If you have a fall or feel unwell, there’s no time wasted trying to find you or a loved one. The system will send a map showing the location of the GPS alarm. It helps the emergency services and/or your contacts to get to you quickly when you need it.

Get help quickly, wherever you are

Standard alarms without GPS tracking won’t be able to locate you if you get lost or become confused. A standard alarm is only useful when you are at home. Our GPS tracking system is installed in a variety of our devices, including the SureSafeGO pendant or smartwatch, so you have plenty of options to suit your wearing preference. The tracking unit uses mobile phone networks and GPS satellites to transmit the signals that tell your nominated contacts where you are.

With our 24/7 monitored and friend and family-monitored models, the ‘Find Me’ feature will send a map to your contacts’ mobile phone or tablet that gives your location within 5 or 10 metres. All you need to do to request the location is send a single text message to the alarm from your mobile phone. This means that if you are ever worried about your loved one, but do not want to bother them by checking in on them constantly, you can check their location to see if they are where they are supposed to be, for example at home.

Why You Should Have a Personal Tracker

Being able to pinpoint your location means you can get medical help quickly if you need it. Getting to the hospital in a short amount of time reduces the risk of further injury and can prevent dehydration or hypothermia. You are also more likely to make a good recovery and return to daily life if your accident is dealt with promptly.

More and more people want to live independently, in the comfort of their own home, as they get older. Naturally, ageing can make living independently more of a challenge. With a personal tracker, not only do you know that if you feel unwell or have an accident, help is at hand at the touch of a button, but you’ll be able to feel more confident in going out on your own and getting on with the activities you enjoy. Your loved ones can also feel happier in the knowledge that you’re safe and protected while wearing a personal alarm.

For extra protection, you can also have fall detection as part of your GPS tracker for the elderly. This technology can detect a fall and call for help without you needing to press the panic button. It will call through to the response centre, or family and friends, when a fall is detected. This can be vital if you or your parent cannot move following a fall or sudden illness, for example if they have lost consciousness following a fall, or are unable to move following a stroke or heart attack.

The Benefits of GPS Tracking

For older people, a personal alarm for the elderly can enable you to keep your independence and remain living in the comfort of your own home, safe and for longer, while providing your loved ones with peace of mind. You can use them to stay safe in your home, in the garden or when out and about, whether you’re walking the dog, visiting friends, or popping to the shops.

If you are at risk or suffer from any health conditions such as epilepsy, diabetes, emphysema or heart disease, a personal alarm with GPS could be a valuable addition to your life. First, it will provide you with a way to quickly and easily call for help in an emergency. It will also give them peace of mind knowing that someone will be alerted if they fall or have another type of accident related to their health condition. If you experience any symptoms which you find worrying, you simply need to press a button to summon help. Read our blogs for more information on how a personal alarm can help those with different medical conditions.

Lone workers can also benefit from wearing a lone worker GPS device with them. SureSafe lone worker alarms allow employees to call for help in an emergency, whether they are at risk from violence or abuse, or if they have an accident. GPS tracking is particularly helpful for lone workers whose jobs are set around being out and about, such as electricians, construction workers and drivers, as you can get the help you need fast, wherever you are. For employers, knowing the whereabouts of your lone workers and ensuring that you have a good monitoring system in place will help you to quickly identify any issues should they arise. Read more here about lone worker protection.

These are just a few of the benefits of GPS tracking:

  • It lets you have your independence – leave your home with confidence
  • Get the help you need, wherever you are
  • Allows loved ones to find you if you can’t be located
  • Enables medical assistance to get to you fast
  • Gives you confidence and peace of mind
  • Fall detection with all SureSafe GPS alarms

The benefits of a one-touch personal alarm

A one-touch personal alarm comes with a wealth of benefits which include;

  • Easily accessible and wearable emergency button
  • Simple to use
  • Showerproof wristband or pendant – the highest risk place for a fall
  • No need to try to get up or find your way to the phone to get help
  • Gives you the confidence to get on with daily life
  • Allows you to get hold of your contacts without needing a phone
  • Get the help you need quickly when you need it

Being left alone for more than an hour after an accident can lead to a number of further injuries or health conditions, such as dehydration or hypothermia. In the event of a heart attack or a stroke, getting to the hospital quickly is vital – it can mean the difference between life or death. Being able to press the emergency elderly alarm button can make all the difference to your recovery.

What our customers think of our elderly GPS trackers

Elderly GPS trackers can make a real difference to our customers and their families, but don't just take our word for it read our reviews to see for yourself...

Questions answered & any teething problems resolved. Very helpful & understanding staff.

Just acquired alarm & seems to be working well.

Good idea to note SureSafe emergency number

incase of weak signal.

Also, need to ask about fall detection, whether this can be tested & what is the best setting for my particular situation.

Feel relieved & more safe as I spend a lot of time alone. Wearing the alarm on the wrist is more convenient that having a mobile phone to hand should an emergency arise with little or no alert time. The family & friends app is optional that I prefer ie you can still use the alarm & get help without having this feature. Thank you SureSafe for proving peace of mind.

In the beginning I had a problem with the watch being uncomfortable. They immediately changed it to a pendant and I am now very pleased. The lady on the phone was so helpful and very pleasant. The pendant arrived very quickly with a postage pre paid envelope to return the watch. 😊

I researched many alarms on then website and Suresafe is the best safe alarm for me as I had a few falls outside and needed help. I am very happy that it covers inside and outside in the uk. I can now feel safe to visit my family and friends who live many miles away from me.

I changed the black wristband for the silver one as it is easy for me to open and close with arthritis of my fingers when I need to charge it.

Ordered a pendant alarm for my father in Law, it arrived quickly, setup was straight forward, only issue was that he kept setting it off when he sat back to relax and fold his arm. Called through to get it returned, purchased a Watch alarm version, arrived next day, setup again very simple, all good and we are all comfortable that we now have a layer of protection in case he falls or has problems, so much so that two days later I purchased another for my Mother.

What Is the Best Gps Tracker for Elderly Alzheimer’s Patients?

Promoting a sense of independence in elderly Alzheimer’s patients is essential, particularly in the early stages. However, it can be a frightening prospect for the person with it and those who love and care for them. Devices that are equipped with GPS tracking to locate a person can be extremely useful. Not only do they lower the risk of someone with Alzheimer’s getting lost, but they can provide peace of mind for them and their loved ones.

Frequently Asked Questions

Have a question? Take a look at some of the common questions that people have before buying a SureSafe alarm:

If you have a personal alarm with a GPS tracker it means you can get out and about away from home with confidence. The GPS technology in the pendant alarm enables your family or a SureSafe Operator to locate you should you need help. If an alert is sent out and your contacts don’t know where you are the GPS will send out a map that pinpoints your location between 5 and 10 metres of where you are.

The tracker works in the same way as a GPS on a car. It uses mobile networks to track your location when you are away from home.

With SureSafe’s family monitored devices, the tracker can also be used in other ways. If you have an elderly relative who tends to wander or gets lost easily, you can create a Geo-Fence. The Fence works by having a certain area within the system which is safe for you to visit. If you leave this area your contacts will receive an alert and they can speak to you to make sure you haven’t lost your way or become confused.

The FindMe feature allows your family members to obtain a map of your whereabouts if they are trying to locate you. The map is accurate at pinpointing your whereabouts and means either a family member or the emergency services can get to you without the delay of trying to find your whereabouts.

A GPS tracker means you can live independently but with peace of mind. You and your family know they can find you when you are away from home. You don’t have to speak to people you don’t know or try and understand complicated directions.

With the touch of a button, you can get help from people you know and trust.

Our SureSafeGO and SureSafeGO Plus dementia tracker watch use a built-in GPS tracking system that works anywhere you have a mobile phone signal in the UK. The GPS personal alarm uses a SureSafe Mobile SIM which will always pick up the strongest network wherever you are at that time, enabling you to continue with your day-to-day life.

The GPS system also means your location is shared when you need help. You get the help you need, where you need it. This can give your nominated contacts added reassurance that you are safe.

The SureSafeGO also comes with an automatic fall alert, which will trigger even if your elderly relative is not able to press the SOS button. You can then use the GPS personal alarm to find their location and get help quickly.

Knowing that the GPS personal alarm will let you know where your relative is located will give them the confidence to get out of the house to go shopping, visit friends or take a gentle stroll. The GPS system means your relative can speak to you if they feel ill or have a fall. They don’t have to rely on strangers for help.

If you get easily confused, or you have early-stage dementia you might find you are becoming more forgetful. This could mean you set off from home to do some shopping, but you confuse the buses and end up somewhere you don’t know well or recognise at all.

If you are wearing a personal alarm with a GPS, then with one touch of the SOS button you know you can get help and reassurance from either a nominated family member or a SureSafe operator.

Having someone who you can speak to through your personal alarm pendant will reduce your anxiety and help you to stay calm while you wait for help to arrive. That’s the benefit of GPS. You don’t need to try and explain where you are. Your family contact will get a map sent to their mobile phone that pinpoints your whereabouts within 5 to 10 metres.

All you need to do is to find somewhere to wait safely for your family member to come and get you.

You don’t need a family friend to come to you, maybe all you need is them to tell you the number of the bus you need to get back home. Either way, the GPS tracking in your pendant means you can go out of the house with confidence and without anxiety.

Our pendant personal alarms are lightweight, simple to use and easy to set up. They allow you to continue doing what you love, with the assurance that help is only the push of a button away. Our personal alarms with built-in GPS help you or your loved one to live independently longer and enable them to stay safe when away from home.

Tracking devices for people can be useful for a number of reasons. For children, giving them a tracking device for people to wear, or place in a bag or pocket, can give parents peace of mind that they can find them if the happen to get lost. Equally tracking devices for people can be very helpful in helping disabled adults live more independently in the community. The ability for the individual to be able to call for help if they got lost, or disoriented, is very valuable. For the person’s carer, they can have peace of mind that the person can have more freedom, without the need to worry about them getting lost. The can get the location of the tracker at any time by sending a simple text message, meaning they can find the person immediately should they ever need to.

For older people, trackers can be very useful for people who have certain medical conditions, or simply those people who are becoming a little forgetful but want to maintain their independence. People with dementia can be known to wander, or get lost, when ‘out and about’. Have a tracking device for people with them could mean the difference between them being lost for hours, or finding them in minutes. The SureSafeGO is the most popular dementia tracking device for people. It has a ‘find me’ function that allows the person’s loved ones to get a Google Maps link to the alarm’s location by simply sending a single text message.

When purchasing a GPS tracker for the elderly, reliability is a very important consideration. You need to be able to feel confident that it will work when needed.

SureSafe’s range of GPS trackers are tried and trusted. Our flagship product, the SureSafeGO, is the leading GPS tracker for the elderly in the UK. With tens of thousands sold since 2015, you can feel confident that you are in safe hands.

Going hand-in-hand with reliability comes accuracy. SureSafe’s GPS location services will pinpoint the alarm user’s location to within 5 metres. You will have no concerns about being able to locate them in an emergency.

Additionally, SureSafe’s mobile SIM card offers even more reliability. Our SIM cards are cross-network SIMs, which means they can use all the three main UK mobile phone networks. You can have peace of mind that you have the best chance of getting the best signal available, when you need it most.
