SKU:

Limited stock remaining!

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.

  • 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.

What people say

Our products are tested and reviewed by people living with dementia and their carers to make sure they are fit for purpose. We use the feedback to decide which products to stock and to help with the information and advice we give.

We took the Safer Walking GPS locator v2 along to the Peterborough and North Staffs dementia group where members Julie and Chris were keen to try it out: "We went to a classic car rally and Chris went off with a friend, and I could see where he was. We were able to locate each other at the rally and when we went to Peterborough." Julie found that "the live tracking worked well, so we didn’t even need to call." They found it easy to set up zones, and Julie added "it was clear and easy for Chris to use, it’s just got the one button for him to press.’ You can read the full article in our Dementia Together magazine.
