MedicAlert Kid Smart offers the full suite of MedicAlert services at a discounted rate for children ages 0-17.
The MedicAlert + Safe Return® program is designed to provide wandering assistance (along with emergency medical information and personal identification services) to seniors with Alzheimer's or related dementia.
6 out of 10 people with Alzheimer’s will wander. Should a senior you care for go missing, MedicAlert Foundation will work with you, your local Alzheimer’s Association chapter, and local law enforcement to provide wandering assistance aiding in the safe return of your loved one.
Emergency responders and medical professionals are trained to recognize MedicAlert medical IDs, and will use them in emergency situations to provide appropriate treatment and care.
Responders that recognize a person’s Alzheimer’s medical ID have been educated to call our 24/7 Emergency Response service to obtain an EMIR® (Emergency Medical Information Record). Once we have provided information from the person's eletronic health record, we’ll notify that person’s emergency contacts and inform them of the location and treatment status of their loved one.
My husband Gary has Alzheimer's disease. One day I took a nap and when I woke up, Gary had wandered. He was picked up by an ambulance 5 miles away from our home. When the hospital contacted MedicAlert, you provided the doctors and emergency personnel with all of his information and contacted me to let me know where he was. Because of MedicAlert, the whole process went a lot faster.
