The potential dangers of wandering residents are significant and can have permanent, catastrophic effects. Secure Care provides several solutions for senior living facilities, including our DoorGUARDIAN solution and our  ENVisionIT® location-based data solution (LBDS) which provides patient and staff safety, workflow optimization, and improves patient support through more communication. With our easy-to-use software locating a wandering patient in real-time is a proven time saver when timing is crucial. Searching is easy and flexible with several search options available. The information is then displayed as either a list/table or an icon(s) on a map given precise accuracy. Alerts can be sent to mobile devices. 

High risk residents or patients, like those in dementia or memory care units, wander for a variety of reasons. Wandering residents can find themselves in unsafe areas of a facility or outside without notice providing flexible, definable safety areas for wander-prone individuals is the focus of the DoorGUARDIAN solution.

Installing a wandering resident security system can’t prevent every potential wandering patient from moving around but it is a key component of any wander prevention program.  The DoorGUARDIAN® Universal Series wander management solution allows facilities and hospitals to: 

  • Monitor wandering residents or high-risk patients, while maintaining their dignity to move freely about a facility 
  • Secure or lock and alarm specific doors if a resident attempts to leave 
  • Track the exact location of a wander prone patient or resident, and create rules to automatically trigger alerts or alarm notifications to staff (when used with the ENVisionIT® location-based data solution) 
  • Take immediate action to protect residents or patients in your care based on notifications received via the mVision® mobile app 

Whether you are looking to protect wandering residents through access control or need a more dynamic system to permit normal traffic flow, our wander management experts can help design a system to fit your facility’s needs and budget.
