So many caregivers live stressful lives daily. We have all have heard stories of mothers, fathers, children, brothers, and sisters getting lost after wandering. We always hope all are found safe.

That’s why we developed Alerta: a disposable, waterproof patch that lasts one week and is placed on your loved one’s back to alert you if your loved one wanders (Sundowning.) Alerta is a disposable patch intended to assist in the individual monitoring of your loved one living at home, for example, a person with Alzheimer’s, dementia, or an Autistic child who may tend to wander.

Alerta is worn by your loved one and monitored with a Wedge (receiver) by the caregiver. The Wedge will notify the caregiver with an audible and visual alarm if your loved one wanders from a safe zone of approximately 75 feet. Alerta gives you the peace of mind you need to reclaim simple comforts like taking a shower and sleeping, knowing you will be notified if your loved one wanders.

Alerta doesn't find people. We feel it is better not to lose people in the first place."
