MedicAlert® Awareness Month: Celebrating the Services Behind Your Medical Bracelet

MedicAlert – isn't every medical bracelet a MedicAlert bracelet? Unfortunately, the answer is no. While the MedicAlert name is synonymous with medical identification bracelets; not all bracelets are created equal. That is why, this August, we celebrate MedicAlert Awareness Month. This celebration is designed to educate the public about MedicAlert Foundation and the extra life-saving benefits that set us apart from general medical jewelry providers.

The collection of services found behind every MedicAlert medical ID bracelet is how shoppers can distinguish MedicAlert Foundation from all other medical ID providers in today’s market. Only MedicAlert continues to deliver 24/7 life-saving services that other providers simply can’t match.

MedicAlert Awareness Month is a special event to recognize that, for over 50 years, our foundation has continued to protect the health and well-being of millions of members’ worldwide. We do this by ensuring you receive proper medical treatment and care during an emergency.

 MedicAlert’s trusted 24/7 emergency support network, offers peace of mind for both you and your loved ones. If unresponsive; your personalized engraved MedicAlert medical ID will work for you, immediately connecting first responders and medical personnel to your up-to-date medical information.

I feel honored to work for a charity whose team members and services work 24/7; in order to ensure our customers receive exceptional medical care in the event of an emergency.

In recognition of MedicAlert Awareness Month; I believe it’s important to share success stories from customers of all ages worldwide. As a mother, wife, daughter, and sister; I have chosen to highlight one of our most valued services- 24/7 Family Notification.

Take a look at some of our customer success stories; and the gratitude they felt in knowing their family was immediately updated regarding their medical condition and/or whereabouts during their emergency…

 

True Stories: How MedicAlert Medical IDs and Services Save Lives

“I was driving around for less than two minutes when MedicAlert called me,” said Aimee, adding “Brandon would have kept going and ended up who knows where if the nice woman hadn’t stopped and saw his MedicAlert ID bracelet… The lady on the phone from MedicAlert told me exactly where I could go to pick up Brandon. I couldn’t help from being a blubbering mess and so grateful”- Mother of 9 year-old boy with Autism

“It was the middle of the night and I saw the front door was open and immediately panicked. I realized John had wandered off for a walk and was worried he’d become disoriented and not be able to find his way home. It was only a matter of minutes when I received a call from MedicAlert telling me his location. Thank goodness a passerby realized John looked confused and saw his MedicAlert bracelet,” adding, “I absolutely recommend your services. Thank you MedicAlert for your prompt response to the call!”- Caregiver to man living with Alzheimer’s
