Wandering Door Alarm Systems
Wandering Door Alarm Systems can be configured for use with a Central Monitoring Unit that alarms at a Nurses Station or other location and displays the doorway and resident that set-off the door alarm.
Wandering prevention systems have been in use for about twenty five years and are mainly used in hospitals, senior living communities and group homes.
If a facility mentions they have a wander guard system, they may be simply implying that they have a wandering management system.
Wandering behavior most often makes the news when a resident leaves a care facility; like a retirement home, assisted living facility or nursing home and dies.
If you are looking to place your loved one with Alzheimer's or Dementia related concerns in a senior living facility, make sure that you have a good understanding of how the Anti-Wandering system works and how the staff is trained to respond to these situations.
This is all you need to simply and effectively monitor exits or any crucial doorway in your care facility. The door alarm sounds audibly and visually.
Simply hang or attach the alarm above any crucial exit or doorway in your care facility and plug it in. A floor mat alarm may also be placed at the side of a bed or in a doorway to alert the caregiver when a resident arises or attempts to depart.
Medical alarms help reduce patient falls and wandering, and allow care-givers to be alerted immediately.
