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.

  • " I employed Tina Jubinville for two blocks of five sessions. I was very pleased with her teaching methods and her patience. I really felt that I learned a lot and that I overcame my anxiety about making a mistake and having everything disappear into the ether. She wrote instructions for all the things we learned and now, if I can't remember something, I can refer to her written instructions and can follow them. "

  • " Jennifer has assisted me with all of my computer and telephone issues for the past 2 years. She has always been helpful and willing to meet with me whenever I had issues. She is very quick to identify the problem and she teaches me how to deal with these problems should they occur again in the future. I would strongly recommend Jennifer any time if you need help with your computer, smart phone or tablet. Bob Walch "

  • " Tina was amazing in helping me set up my new computer. Not only is she very knowledgeable about all the technical aspects involved, but she is also one of very few "tech" people I have ever met in my life who is very skilled at interacting with less techy people and talking in plain, clearly understandable language. If I ever have any problems with my computer, or if I am in need of training assistance, I will definitely ask for Tina! "
