Wandering and Elopement

Whether the result of disorientation or a deliberate desire to leave, wandering (elopement) puts vulnerable individuals at risk. BoundaryCare alerts caregivers and increases safety. Especially useful for dementia patients, autistic children, disabled individuals, and brain injury survivors.

Wandering / Elopement: The risks are real

Wandering is one of the most common fears for seniors and vulnerable adults—with good reason.

Whether due to cognitive impairment, emotional instability, or disorientation, wandering is risky business. BoundaryCare’s rapid alerting of caregivers can be the difference between life and death.

In addition to a robust system for alerting caregivers, BoundaryCare also provides emergency tracking and emergency communications.

One watch — endless possibilities.
