Abstract

Science minister Malcolm Wicks suggested last month that monitoring tags could help families or carers track older people who have specific illnesses such as dementia. This is because symptoms of dementia can often include memory loss and confusion, making the sufferer more vulnerable to wandering. Professor John Wattis and Professor Stephen Curran look beyond the headlines.
