The solution need not be institutional or hospital care; The Freedom device presents families with choices to keep the family together at home if healthcare or dementia becomes an issue.
Modern society has changed over a generation with more single parent families, both parents working and a more mobile family unit.

There are 37.5 million people in the world diagnosed with dementia, 15.4 million of whom reside in USA. It is expected that as the world’s population ages, and in particular the baby boomers achieve retirement, that these numbers will increase by at least 30% per annum. All people with dementia will wander in their lifetime. Wandering has been identified as the single most stressful event that leads to family members making the difficult decision to seek help in the form of institutional care. The loss of familiar surroundings and possessions has been identified as one of the most stressful events in the life of a dementia adult. If Freedom can stop just one wandering event it will have paid for itself several times over in both emotional and financial terms.
Care home, ALF and Hospital (Multi Use)
Wanderers will escape, Staff may not notice, Emergency services will become involved in the search. Consequently, dementia adults, and special needs children are typically secured behind locked doors and window bars, Freedom multi use protects all residents within a whole facility and grounds with a network of base stations. A wandering event is immediately identified and their location sent to the designated carer. So within a matter of minutes they can be safely recovered without the involvement of emergency services.
Long term health issues in elderly Relatives
Long term illness need not require long term hospital care. With the support of tele-health solutions and homecare it can be safe to be cared for in the comfort of your own home. However, RF based solutions can only protect you within range of the home base station. Freedom is different, it has a panic button, it is a mobile GSM & GPS device worn on the wrist; help is only a button press away wherever you are 24-7.
