Abstract/Summary

The aim of using GPS for Alzheimer's Patients is to give carers and families of those affected by Alzheimer's Disease, as well as all the other dementia related conditions, a service that can, via SMS text message, notify them should their loved one leave their home. Through a custom website, it enables the carer to remotely manage a contour boundary that is specifically assigned to the patient as well as the telephone numbers of the carers. The technique makes liberal use of such as Google Maps.
