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.
