Often times, the causes of a person suffering from consistent seizures are unknown. Epilepsy Awareness Month reminds us that the heightened need for a cure is evident. Today, the number of Americans living with epilepsy is on the rise.
Today as we celebrate World Diabetes Day, MedicAlert encourages Americans to be aware that the choices we make each day directly impact our health.
World Diabetes Day continues to be celebrated on November 14th each year to raise diabetes advocacy and awareness. This observance is marked by various activities taking place throughout the United States. Free diabetes screenings are offered at thousands of doctor’s offices and wellness centers worldwide.
This November, MedicAlert joins in the global effort to bring awareness to one of our nation’s fastest-growing diseases. Diabetes Awareness Month serves as a reminder to the importance of making healthier lifestyle decisions today for a healthier tomorrow.
Children Living With Type-2 Diabetes
When children are diagnosed with type-2 diabetes, particularly at a young age, it can be very difficult for the family to adjust to lifestyle changes.
Is feeling scatterbrained causing chaos in your daily life? Overwhelming routines of juggling work and family life can cause madness in our routines to say the least.
Occasional misplacement of our keys, wallets, or our kid’s fieldtrip permission slips can most definitely be considered normal occurrences when life becomes hectic. But when this forgetfulness becomes a daily event, it can create problems both with work and at home.
This November, let’s raise awareness for the 15 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease or other related dementia. MedicAlert has deep appreciation for the remarkable individuals who dedicate their love, support, and time to caring for those living with Alzheimer’s.
Whether you are a child, grandchild, sibling, spouse, nurse, or friend who is caring for someone living with any form of dementia, your devotion and efforts should be recognized. Being a caregiver can be a highly fulfilling experience, but can also take a toll on both your physical and emotional health.
Story told by daughter of MedicAlert + Safe Return Member
My mom passed away 6 years ago from a heart attack. Her loss was very difficult and unexpected; especially for my dad…
They were married for 56 years and he had a very hard time dealing with her passing. My husband and I decided with us being retired, and my mom being gone, that it would be best for my dad to come live with us.
