Frequently Asked Questions
Have a question? Take a look at some of the common questions that people have before buying a SureSafe alarm:
What is a GPS tracker?
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.
What type of GPS personal alarms are available?
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.
Why should I get a personal alarm with a built-in GPS?
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.
What is a GPS tracker for dementia patients?

Why do people buy trackers for people with dementia?
Dementia and Alzheimer’s can make people lose familiarity with people and places. People with dementia and Alzheimer’s will often get lost or confused about where they are. This can result in them getting lost when they are out and about. It is known to happen at any stage of the disease, not just at the latter stages.
The Alzheimer's Association estimate that 60%, or 6 out of 10, people with the disease will wander at least once. They further state that many will wander a lot more than once.
Wandering is the main reason people buy trackers for people with dementia. If a person wanders off out of the house unannounced, it can take hours to try to find them. Having a dementia tracking device on them can mean that they can be located within minutes.
Another reason people by trackers for people with dementia is in case they got lost. They may go out of the house with full awareness. They know where they are, and where they plan to go. However while out on their journey, they may become disoriented or forgetful, and what was a normal trip out becomes a bad experience. Having a tracker for people with dementia means that their loved ones can find out where they are at any time. The SureSafeGO dementia tracking device allows loved ones to send a text message to request their location, meaning that they can be found in seconds.
