My 90yr mum has her diagnosis now for dementia. I am thinking of getting her a tracker of some kind not for going out and getting lost as she doesn’t seem to go out but to contact us if she needs us urgently.
I don’t really want one that goes through to a central number I just want one that comes through to us.
Does any one know of any.?

Apologies, that one goes through to a central number.
My Dad has dementia so we him one of these, we put his name, street, postcode and a contact number.

It was like seem you can choose who receives the alarm call.
A GPS Tracker will do the trick- when set up, you can see where the person is on your mobile phone etc. It has to be recharged from time to time, and you do need to be a bit techy to set up the sim card-must be 2g compatible network), but there are no other charges with this one other than the Sim card data charges. Do a bit of Googling to get familiar with what you need to know to set it up(or ask any young person you know to help!) You can also return it to Amazon if you don't get on with it. Here is a link , have a read of the reviews- good luck

Sorry Hannah- just read your post again- you want an alarm unit she can use, so this is not for that- sorry
