Three out of five Canadians with dementia wander. The numbers of missing adults who "wandered off" have increased from 2010 to 2014. These are underestimates as not all individuals who went missing were reported. An Alberta study showed that locator devices gave care partners peace of mind. Yet, consumer information about dementia-related locator technologies varies between products and vendors. This creates challenges for care partners and health service providers to manage this information when seeking an appropriate technology. An online consumer guideline of commercially available locator technologies was developed to allow: (1) Vendors to describe their products per standardized product descriptions, and (2) Consumers to access this information to review and make purchase decisions.
