Cost:$9.95 per month

Description:

This Android app from Iconosys lets people with Alzheimer's disease or related dementia symptoms alert their caregivers and give their location should they become disoriented or need assistance. Tell My Geo also has a comprehensive medical information component similar in function to a med-alert bracelet, but Tell My Geo contains a more detailed storehouse of important medical information, as well as the ability to send crucial patient information directly to health care professionals, should the need arise. Tell My Geo requires two Android smartphones to administer and use—one for caregivers to track their loved one's location and one for the "cared-for" to reveal his or her location. For more information or to register, visit www.tellmygeo.com.

Features:

  • Includes GPS and location-tracking technology
  • Features large, easy-to-read "Where Am I?", "Send Location" and "Call for Help" buttons on Cared-For's phone
  • Schedule regular location updates sent from Cared-For's phone
  • Store critical medical information and forward it to health care providers in an emergency
  • Comes with two medical alert stickers to place on the Cared-For's phone and car
  • Versions available in English, Spanish and for the visually impaired
