I can understand that some people believe that monitoring people with dementia could be seen as inhumane but in my professional opinion, I believe that it can give a person the ability to choose to live in their own home for as long as possible
(PRWEB UK) 2 May 2013
According to The Telegraph report dementia patients in Sussex, who regularly go missing, could be tracked by a GPS tracking device provided by Sussex Police in a trial that will cost the police £400 a month. If successful, the scheme will be rolled out across the country.
The report goes on to say that although the tracking scheme will give peace of mind to many of the families of dementia suffers and their location but Bill Bentley, an East Sussex Conservative councillor who is responsible for adult social care in the region, has demanded more details about the scheme and fears dementia suffers could be stigmatised by the new tracking system. He said:
“They may have dementia but would they actually wish to be tracked in this way?”
Gary Fitzgerald, the chief executive of the campaign group Action on Elder Abuse, said: “If there is a choice between someone being able to live in their own home with minimal supervision while using a tag and being in a residential home where they would not be happy I think you would be able to make an argument.”
Private Investigator Blackpool are often asked to fit tracking devices to vehicles that belong to family members who are new to driving or elderly to check that they are coping with driving a vehicle. Investigators have also been asked to provide devices that can track consenting young, elderly and infirm relations who are vulnerable but would like independence and to live a normal life. These devices give peace of mind to parents and carers alike to know that there family members are safe.
Spokesperson for Private Investigator Blackpool, Andrew Evans said:
“I can understand that some people believe that monitoring people with dementia could be seen as inhumane but in my professional opinion, I believe that it can give a person the ability to choose to live in their own home for as long as possible.”
