The Safer Walking Locator Device has been developed by Ravencourt Living in partnership with Alzheimer’s Society and Designability, a charity whose purpose is to develop and evaluate assistive technology. 

We worked closely with people living with dementia and their carers throughout the development process to make the product and instructions as simple and easy to use as possible.

Please note the GPS locator requires a £14.99 monthly subscription, which includes unlimited data.

Calls to the GPS locator will be classed as European calls due to the roaming sim card inside the device. Please check with your phone provider before purchase, whether you have free or inclusive  calls to Europe so that extra costs are not incurred.


Key features

In conjunction with the app:

  • SOS button sends a notification to relatives/carers in an emergency.
  • Includes a roaming SIM that switches between networks to maintain optimal signal (includes EU networks).
  • Shows GPS locator’s location live.
  • Receives SOS notifications and low battery alerts.
  • Make a 2-way voice call to the device at any time (if you speak to the person with the locator they can speak back to you through the GPS locator).
  • Set safe zones (also called geofences) and receive notifications when the device enters/exits these zones.
  • View 1 months-worth of route history.
  • Water resistant (ideal for those who want to wear the device around their neck or on a lanyard).
  • Comes with a simple to use charging dock, allowing for easy charging without the need for plugging in cables.


How it works

  • Easy to set up and use.
  • The GPS Locator works in conjunction with the Safer Walking App (available to download from google play or app store).
  • Once downloaded follow the instructions to register an account at www.saferwalkingactivation.com
  • The GPS locator requires a £14.99 monthly subscription, which includes unlimited data.
  • Calls to the GPS locator will be classed as European calls due to the roaming sim card inside the device. Please check with your phone provider before purchase, whether you have free or inclusive  calls to Europe so that extra costs are not incurred.
  • In an emergency, the user presses on the SOS button which sends a signal to all emergency contacts (up to 5). The contacts see the alert and can speak with the user through the locator device. They can put them at ease by letting them know that they see their location and that they’re on their way to help. They can also leave a note for fellow contacts to let them know what’s going on.
