This warning device is able to offer patients with dementia a dignified method of staying safe while still having the freedom to live their lives as normally as possible.

One of the habits of people with dementia is to wander and due to their confusion and short-term memory loss, they can find themselves in dangerous situations or completely lost. The 'Proximity Button' is a warning device that is able to sense when someone suffering from dementia may be wandering and sends a signal to the device's accompanying app.

This warning device allows caretakers to prevent dangerous situations while still ensuring that the people suffering from this disease are able to enjoy the freedom and independence that most others are able to.
