Mindme
Adrian founded Mindme in 2007 and went to China to persuade a manufacturer to create a single button alarm with a drop-in charger. Finding a SIM provider to supply an overseas SIM that would roam was a greater challenge! When Chichester Careline had an enquiry for a tracking device for somebody with dementia, Adrian researched and created a device without an SOS button or an on/off switch. Little did he know the furore this new device would cause. The Daily Telegraph ran the headline “GPS tags for dementia patients”, which began a news story that went viral across the world. The issue concerned Human Rights and Privacy. Local radio stations in the UK held phone-in programmes and the story became the subject of BBC Radio 4 ‘Thought For The Day’. Carers had the last word, understanding the value of such a device when a loved one with dementia went missing. Mindme Locate is used across the world, enabling dementia sufferers to lead fuller lives.
