As part of MedicAlert + Alzheimer’s Association Safe Return, the Caregiver Membership is specially designed as a single platform to protect both caregivers and those under their care.
The care you provide for your loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia is critically important. In recognition of this, the Caregiver Membership is specifically designed to protect your loved one should you experience an emergency; as a caregiver, we also provide for your safety by delivering our full suite of MedicAlert membership services. Our services include 24/7 Emergency Response, an EMIR® (Emergency Medical Information Record), and Family Notification service.
If you have a medical emergency, first responders identify you as a caregiver using a unique medical ID. This ID is engraved with your medical information, our 24/7 Emergency Response phone number, and the word “Caregiver” to identify yourself as a person your loved one depends on.
Responders are trained to contact a MedicAlert agent to obtain your health information, and we then notify your designated back up caregiver to ensure your loved one continues to receive care while you recover.
MedicAlert Foundation® is more than a medical ID - we are the most dependable, responsive, intelligent, and trusted emergency support network.
