Abstract: In recent years, people are increasingly interacting with an overwhelming of devices especially wearable devices. These later have initiated new ways in human connections with the world. The basic concept of these devices is that they can be worn instead of being carried. They have pervasive and unobtrusive presence. Furthermore, they can be used for helping people with serious medical conditions, like the Alzheimer people. In this context, an application that allows Alzheimer relatives to locate and track the patient by connecting the application with GPS smartwatch that is worn by the patient is proposed. A safety area is predefined by the relative in order to be notified once the patient gets beyond this area. When there is no connection with the GPS watch for any reason and the patient cannot be tracked, the relatives can send a broadcast message to all application users who wish to help and participate in such social and humanitarian work.
