These range from the Property Exit Senor to the latest technology Mindme Locate (a small GPS locator that has been specially designed for those with dementia).  Mindme Locate can clip to a belt, hang around the neck, or be placed in a bag. If a person becomes lost, or disorientated, they can be located through a dedicated website by their family or Chichester Careline. The device sends details of its location to the website every four minutes, has a battery life of 18 hours, and is the smallest GPS locating device to be launched in this country.

The devices are monitored by Chichester Careline. They are able to locate the person if they become lost - regardless of where they are in Europe (as long as there is a mobile network).
