Managing Age-Related Cognitive Decline with Smart Technology

‚Äč

Once normal activities can become more challenging as we all age. However, for those suffering from Alzheimer’s, dementia and other age-related cognitive decline, there are real challenges to be faced with regular day-to-day activities.

Fortunately, advances in smartphone technology has presented us with an interesting solution.

SafeTracks’s Prime Mobile

This is a small handheld device with a cellphone chip and a GPS unit within. It is a hybrid of a panic button and a personal tracker. For example, in the case of an emergency, it has a notification system that can connect them with medical services and/or their emergency contacts. At the same time, the GPS tracking element means that they can be found by those looking for them.

SafeTracks’s GPS Smartsole

These insoles are fitted into the user’s shoes and are equipped with a GPS tacking chip that monitors the wearer’s location in real-time. The technology also allows you to set a geographical boundary, that when crossed sends an alert. Making this a great tool for persons who are at risk of wandering off, easily getting lost/confused and really just require 24-hour monitoring.

What differentiates the Smartsole from the Prime Mobile, (beyond some of the features like a two-way SOS button) is the Prime Mobile is a device where the user has the option to activate it when needed. The Smartsole, on the other hand, is best used for individuals who require constant supervision and are unable to activate a device on their own.

Overall, technologies like those SafeTracks supplies are making the management of age-related cognitive decline simpler. By automating the supervision of individuals with aged-related cognitive decline, family members can actually spend some quality time together instead of worrying about taking care of them.

  • " Steve completed the task of solving my delima that arose from an email I received extremely quickly and resolved my concern completely. As he had some additional time available Steve was also able to teach me how to create new e-mail 'files', which I had been needing for some time, plus he helped me to be knowledgeable about a group of old discs that I had been reluctant to dispose of. Through the process today, Steve displayed the ability of being a very good teacher with exceptional instruction ability. His ability will be helpful in future!!! Tks "

  • " When I was hired to manage content for Indigenous Corporate Training Inc.?s newly launched blog (Working Effectively with Aboriginal Peoples?.com), I faced a wall of fear and confusion as I did not have experience working the backend of a website. In one hour, in my home, Jenn broke down the process in a logical, step-by-step format that removed the fear and provided me with the skills and confidence I needed to access the site, insert content, videos, pictures and hyperlink between postings. I highly recommend her as a teacher. Julie Domvile, writer, blog manager "

I thank this friend every time we meet as his suggestion has given my life a whole new dimension. Jennifer Cairns turned out to be a wonderful person with a winning personality, great sense of humour and the patience of a Saint. Her methods are simple and learning about computers with her is fun and one of life's great pleasures. I recommend her to anyone with computer problems. If she can't help, nobody can.
