Using Technologies for Safer Walking is a research project that aims to find out about the effectiveness of GPS technologies for people with dementia. We would also like to know what other sorts of technologies – anything that enables the person to find their way about – are being used. We are currently looking for people with dementia and family members to join our research project.
We are recruiting people in Hampshire. If you are using GPS or another technology, please do get in touch. If you are worried about going out alone and are considering limiting going out on your own, please do get in touch. If you would like to know more about GPS technologies and whether they might be right for you, please do get in touch.
