RED DEER, AB --(Marketwired - June 27, 2017) - Canadian owned company SafeTracks GPS Canada Inc. announced today it will be offering a GPS wearable device to provide a long term care alternative for patients living with dementia and seniors who are at high risk of falls and wandering.

SafeTracks™ allocated a pool of TRiLOC™ GPS Emergency Communication Devices for clients within Alberta Health Services. The TRiLOC™ watch, an advanced GPS wearable, is now available to Albertans through a leasing program offered through Alberta Health Services programs. SafeTracks™ expects this opportunity will provide significant value in the enhancement of life, improving both seniors and caregiver's confidence. The TRiLOC™ will provide clients and caregivers greater independence, peace of mind and imperatively, security.

Vince Morelli, President of SafeTracks™, states, "SafeTracks™ is honored to participate in the Leasing Program to provide a Lifestyle Management Solution for at-risk seniors. With this technology, seniors can stay in their homes longer, live safely in their communities all the while enjoying a higher quality of life and their independence."

In 2015, SafeTracks™ was involved in a study regarding Usability of Locator Technology Among Home Care Clients at risk for Wandering. The study was completed by the University of Alberta in collaboration with Alberta Health Services. It was recommended that when GPS devices are implemented at the early stages of dementia, it leads to a better quality of life increasing daily routines and independence. As the disease may progress, it gives caregivers and family members the peace of mind knowing their loved ones are secure.
