Reduce stress that surrounds caring for elderly parents

Caring for an elderly parent or friend can be hard. It's okay to admit that it's something you didn't expect to be so emotionally and physically draining.

Of course you want to take care of your parents, but ensuring their safety is a big responsibility. They may be fully dependent on you as their caregiver, or you may just now be seeing areas where they need more assistance. No matter where you are in the cycle, watching your elderly parent decline is heartbreaking, stressful, and comes with a lot of worry.

There are lots of ways to help you regain balance, but the most simple and discrete is a GPS tracker. The impact such a small device has on your life as a caregiver is incredibly eye opening. You can keep an eye on your elderly parent or friend without affecting their independence, and alleviate some of your worry about what happens if they wander.

Small and Portable Trackers for Wandering

We tend to know our parents habits.  They often have a favorite bag, pair of boots, coat, or keys that they wear or take with them all the time.  What if there was a GPS device that could easily and discretely be attached or placed inside possessions or clothing, that also had long battery life?

There is - the LightBug Zero

If and when your elderly parent decides to go on a journey, every second counts.  The chances of finding them safe and sound decreases with every minute they are unaccounted for. The LightBug Zero GPS tracker won't prevent the from wandering, but it will help keep the safe by alerting you of any out of the ordinary movement, and allowing you to track their location.

If they wander at night while you're sleeping, simply set up a GPS or WiFi safe-zone.  The safe-zones you set up will alert you the moment they leave the zone or travel out of WiFi range. When the tracker leaves the safe zone (such as their house), you receive an audible alert letting you know instantly. 

Help them keep their independence

Your aging parents may feel that they’re losing their freedom and independence and your respect, with you, their child, having to care for them if assisted living is being considered. A GPS tracker will give your parent the independence and freedom they desire and deserve, and give you peace of mind knowing where they are at any time.

SOS / Panic Button: One fo the great features of the LightBug Zero is the SOS / Panic button. It is an extremely valuable tool for your parent or aging friend.  With a simple press of a button, they can alert you of their whereabouts.  The SOS button on the LightBug Zero GPS tracker will put both you and them at ease, knowing that they can easily alert you if needed.

Affordable Monitoring
Assisted living facilities, nursing homes and at-home care can be great options, but expensive.  Depending on the state you live in, prices can run from $1500/month up to over $8000 a month.  For some it may not be the right solution.  If you're primarily concerned about a tendency to wander, a GPS tracker may be a an option for you to try at first.

Of course one size does not fit all.  You get to choose what's best for your family. In many cases, it comes to layered approach involving increased care, a strong support network, and monitoring. A GPS tracker is a great tool to have in your toolbox to help watch over your parent. Once you have the GPS tracker, our data plans can be as affordable as $119/year.

It's a small price to pay for a device that could save their life, and give you at least a little peace of mind.
