Why a GPS tracker for your aging parents?

A short trip to the convenience store, or a longer trek to a vacation destination , a GPS tracker for your aging parent takes the worry out of the journey for both of you.

As a person gets older, he or she starts losing energy, vision and judgment. They sometimes need the help of others. Children of aging parents have options about their parents driving. It is not always possible to stay beside them and assist them driving.

TraksUS™ best selling GPS tracking device is a plug and play and is easy to install. It can be a helping hand to assist the children of aging parents. Most children want to help their parents, but it is not always possible. They have jobs, tasks and huge workloads and kids of their own to attend to.

So, sometimes the aging parent has to travel alone. They often forget the way to their destination or are not watching their speed. Using a vehicle GPS tracker from TraksUs™, you will become more aware of what your parents driving habits are. You will receive text or email alerts if they are exceeding the speeds that you set, or traveling outside the zones that were pre-set for them, in real time, with their current location.

Driving and traveling is extremely beneficial for older people. It helps to keep their mind active, and give them a sense of independence as they approach their golden years.

Statistics shows that in 2012, there were about 36 millions licensed drivers aged 65 and older. But the risk of getting killed in a car accident also increases as we age. This amounts to 15  elderly adults killed, and 586 injured in crashes, on average, every day.

The device will send you text or email if the person goes beyond the speed you set, or if they are braking too hard.
