The objective of CARELINK is to deliver a tracking solution that addresses the issue of wandering in People with Dementia (PwD), allowing carers to monitor PwD. Using current machine-learning technologies we will profile user routes that can then be used to build a repository of route patterns to be compared against live routes, thus allowing for early warnings if deviation that looks like a wandering event occurs. This will be backed up by dissemination and knowledge exchange functionality to keep carers and interested parties up to date with the latest development and information related to the condition.
