2019 Social Care Awards

6 GHP / Social Care Awards 2019 , Mindme Best Vulnerable Personal Alarm Development Company – UK & Best Bespoke GPS Tracking Device: Mindme Locate Thanks to over 10 years’ experience in the market, Mindme is an innovative GPS tracking device provider supporting a range of corporate and private clients who wish to ensure safety for vulnerable familymembers, friends or patients. We profile the firm to find out more. Over the past decade Mindme has played a leading role in the development of GPS personal alarms for vulnerable people. The firm’s Founder and Chief Executive has been involved with GPS since it first became commercially available over twenty years ago, and as such is able to draw on a vast wealth of experience to supply innovative solutions that support vulnerable people across the UK. In the very early days Mindme asked Chichester Careline to act as its Response Centre and so began a relationship that continues to this day. When Mindme launched Locate it was not greeted with open arms. The company was accused of breaching Human Rights and/or Privacy issues. Matters came to a head when Sussex Police decided to trial some units and the Daily Telegraph ran a front page headline ‘GPS tags for dementia patients’. The news story went viral and was covered by all the UK television news channels, most local radio stations and newspapers from around the world. Carers from all over the country rang national and local radio talk programmes and many told horrendous stories of how their loved one went missing and the trauma it caused the family. Today Mindme Locate is the market leader in dementia tracking and is acknowledged to be an important aid in the welfare of people with dementia who wander. It gives device users the freedom to go out alone whilst it gives their carers peace of mind. Looking ahead, Mindme will continue to innovate and adapt to ensure that its solutions remain at the forefront of emerging developments within both the GPS tracking technology and social care markets.
