Lost Assisted Living Community Resident Quickly Rescued Thanks to EmFinders® EmSeeQ® Device
Date:3/28/2012

SACRAMENTO, Calif., March 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Patients with dementia are often prone to wandering, and unless they are found and returned home quickly, they can be at great risk of serious injury or death. Joe Johnson, Administrator at Sky Park Gardens Assisted Living near Sacramento, recently took an extra step to keep medically impaired residents of his community safe: He began using EmSeeQ® wearable locator devices made by EmFinders®. That step paid off on March 15, 2012, when a 62-year-old male resident who suffers from Alzheimer's wandered away from the community. Since he was equipped with an EmSeeQ wearable locator device, deputies were able to locate him within 11 minutes and safely return him to the community.

"We'd only had the EmSeeQ system for a week and a half when our resident wandered away from the community," said Mr. Johnson. "After we activated the device, the sheriff's deputies were able to locate our resident very quickly and return him safely. The EmSeeQ works as advertised."

The wristwatch-style EmSeeQ device uses patented E911 technology to transmit the wearer's location. When a wearer is reported missing, department personnel remotely activate the device to dial 9-1-1 and report the location to emergency responders using cellular triangulation. This method is more effective than GPS-based locators because E911 technology works inside buildings, under canopies and in remote areas, providing rescuers with more accurate information to assist in the recovery of lost individuals.

"A Licensed Provider Analyst from the California Department of Social Services conducted a routine follow-up visit with us after the wandering incident and was very impressed with the fast recovery time," noted Mr. Johnson. "We're continuously looking for new ways to keep our residents safe, and the performance of the EmSeeQ device in this instance made a believer out of me."
