As PocketFinder reflects on its continued growth, the area we are most proud of is engagement with our customers- building relationships. Consumer GPS tracking is no longer taboo; more and more families are realizing it's a valid solution. And our fastest growing community? Those whose loved ones have early memory challenges such as Alzheimer's and Dementia.
Whether an early diagnosis or necessary confirmation put off for too long, no one can predict the sheer variety and veracity of emotions that come with an Alzheimer’s or Dementia diagnosis.
Will they need medication? Will they need a caretaker? How can you best keep an eye on them while they maintain independence? Can we keep Mom and Dad together, or does one need to be in specialized care? What will this all cost?
These questions can be paralyzing. What is the best way to address these symptoms while providing the best care for them? With so many decisions to make, it often feels like there are no right answers. The last thing you want to do is deny any remaining freedom your loved one still has. With GPS tracking, extending independence safely may be possible.
Customer Support has learned there is no fear like when a loved one is lost. Not only are you unsure where they are at, its often the case they are unaware of where they are, too. Even if you live just down the road, a lost parent or grandparent may as well be on the other side of the world. Perhaps they only get turned around every now and again but they are adamant against close supervision. Who can blame them for holding on to their freedom and a bigger world?
This is where PocketFinder and GPS tracking may be helpful everyday tools. Families who have loved ones with Alzheimer’s and Dementia get that extra peace of mind knowing they can check up on their location at any time and from anywhere. We want to see families stay together as long as possible. And with so many families having success stories with our GPS trackers, it’s a solution that can’t be overlooked.
Our Support team has the knowledge to determine if GPS tracking is a viable solution for you. We assist customers in your shoes while also working with those tracking children, employees, and even drones. If it can be tracked, we’ve worked it. With our experience, we understand that, unfortunately, there are cases where GPS is not the solution. A GPS tracker is one tool in your tool belt for caring and supporting your loved one. GPS tracking can help extend their independence, but it cannot replace a human caretaker. Support has worked with enough cases to give you the honest answers you deserve.
It’s not about the sale but is about providing a competent solution. PocketFinder chooses to operate like your neighborhood brick-and-mortar because it provides tailored support. And during trying times, like coming to terms with a Dementia diagnosis, tailored support and honest answers are needed.
That first steps are often the hardest. Utilizing a GPS tracker may be just what you need to help make the rest of the journey a little bit easier.
