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.
Each year, our MedicAlert family continues to join in on the holiday festivities while working together to save lives worldwide. As the holiday season commences with Halloween; we have come to understand the importance of joining in the holiday fun with those we spend time with most…our co-workers.
MedicAlert is flaunting our holiday spirit with costumes of all styles. On Halloween morning; our staff members walked proudly through the doors disguised as action figures, athletes, Pac-Men, clowns, bats, and more!
Prevent your family from ‘falling back’ from their physical activity routine with the time change approaching. Soon, our days will seem shorter as nightfall sets in on our drive home from work; making it easier to fall into a hibernating evening routine.
If we want to feel more energized and perhaps even live longer; consistent exercise is a must. Regardless of age or physical ability, we all can benefit from any form of physical exercise.
Our team of support specialists here at MedicAlert Foundation are available 24/7, to ensure you and your loved ones receive exceptional medical care and treatment during an emergency. Your medical ID has a personalized engraving that is specific to any underlying medical conditions; including known food and/or medication allergies
