Considerations

Beware when using GPS tracking devices of the following:

* People with dementia should have the opportunity to move about as freely and independently as possible. The balance between independence and safety is delicate. In itself, wandering is not harmful and when done in a safe environment, can be a healthy outlet for a person with dementia. By determining what may be contributing to wandering, you may be able to identify the triggers and find ways to make it safer.

* GPS tracking devices follow a person's movements and identify his location. No device or system can guarantee that a person with dementia or intellectual disability will not get lost or that he will be found. However you may decide to use one to keep him safer.

* Please note: the field of locating devices is highly technical and detailed. Also, the equipment used to support some of these devices (e.g., a computer, smart phone) may not be practical or readily available for some people.

Check our Assistive Technology Guide for GPS Tracking Devices.

Although it may be possible to program 000 into an autodialler it is important to be aware that 000 calls from automated devices (such as autodiallers) cannot be guaranteed a response from the emergency services if they are unable to validate the condition, address and required response.

Connecting Medical Alarms to the National Broadband Network

The National Broadband Network (NBN) is planned to provide a high-speed optical fibre connection to 93% of Australians, with the remaining 7% in non-urban areas served by a lower speed wireless or satellite service.

If built as proposed, the NBN will ultimately replace the copper network and looks set to make all other public fixed-line telecommunications networks in Australia obsolete.

Medical alarms supplied by PERSA are expected to work correctly when connected to the NBN. PERSA is the Personal Emergency Response Services Association. Current members are listed on the PERSA website www.persa.com.au <http://www.persa.com.au/>.

However it should be noted that the battery back-up time on the NBN is very short, and will only work for a few hours during a power failure in customer's premises. So this may mean equipment relying on this will not work if there is an extended power failure.

It is also vitally important that your equipment is set-up correctly to work with your medical alarm, and that your selected Retail Service Provider can support that set-up.

If the NBN is rolling-out in your area, you need to call your medical alarm service BEFORE YOU SIGN ANY CONTRACT FOR THE NBN SERVICE.

Your medical alarm service will assist you to select a retail service provider that can support the continued operation of your medical alarm over the NBN.
