What is Alzheimer’s?

Alzheimer's is the most common cause of dementia, a general term for memory loss and other cognitive abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer's disease accounts for 60-80% of dementia cases.

It is a progressive disease that worsens over time. Eventually, people with Alzheimer’s can lose the ability to carry on a conversation and respond to their environment.

Researchers believe there is not a single cause of Alzheimer's disease. The disease likely develops from multiple factors, such as genetics, lifestyle and environment.

There is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, but with an aging population, it’s at the forefront of medical research.

How MedicAlert can help

A MedicAlert ID and membership with Wandering Support® provides an extra level of safety and security for persons living with dementia and their families.

Benefits of a MedicAlert ID and membership for people living with Alzheimer’s or dementia (and their caregivers):

  • Serves as a signal to first responders that you or a loved one has Alzheimer’s or dementia
  • Speaks for your loved one when they cannot – especially important for people with memory loss
  • MedicAlert’s 24/7 Wandering Support® program offers a community network including local law enforcement who work with us to quickly locate missing persons and reunite them with family or caregivers
  • Ensures emergency contacts are notified in an emergency or wandering incident
  • Notifies first responders of any allergies or other medical conditions that could affect treatment to ensure the most efficient and effective care
