Help locate the elderly

My dad has a Samsung Convoy 2.  I have a Galaxy 4.  Is there a way I can keep up with his location?  I'm really looking for something free.  He is declining in health and I want to make sure I can find him if he can't answer his phone.

Please Advise.  Thanks in advance!!

Re: Help locate the elderly

His phone would need to have a location option to start, I'm not familiar with his device, but found this:

I have ideas on finding the phone if it were a smartphone, for instance through Find My Phone which is free, or through other various apps, but because his phone doesn't have the app availability I'm not certain you can accomplish what you want, for Free at least.

There is no real way to do this conveniently from your phone and a basic phone without Family Locator, but at $9.99 a month it isn't free, however, the first month is a free trial.  Other than that, police would need to be used to find a person via GPS in conjunction with Verizon.
