I haven't tried them myself, but they certainly have their use if you have a loved one with Alzheimer's who is still likely to go out alone. There's a monthly fee, but it's often worth the peace of mind. Hopefully, someone from the community will chime in with his or her thoughts. I would caution against thinking this takes care of safety issues - it's a tool and no more.
I have heard from some of my facebook friends that they have tried these. I was told that if it's an area that has frequent wet weather that they system can be glitchy. How they handle in weather was one of my questions. It says Tmobile is the carrier for these but I haven't figured out if it's the only carrier. I guess I'll call the number to see if I can ask more questions other than the FAQ section. I want it as a just in case. My fear is my father will wander away and I'll never find him. At least this would give me a little piece of mind while I'm trying to navigate my way to a facility.
