Living with Alzheimers

Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or another dementia is a labor of love. It can also be a source of stress when you don’t know what to expect from day to day. But one worry is ever-present for many caregivers: the worry that your loved one will wander.

Although no two individuals with Alzheimer’s face the same challenges, a staggering 6 in 10 people with dementia will wander. It can happen at any stage of Alzheimer’s. And if someone with a memory impairment wanders, they may become disoriented and unable to communicate their name or address. That’s why a MedicAlert ID and membership is an important safety precaution for those living with Alzheimer’s and their families.

A MedicAlert ID can be your loved one’s voice in a wandering incident or medical emergency. And MedicAlert's 24/7 Wandering Support® service works with local authorities to quickly reunite someone who wanders with their family or caregiver. With a MedicAlert ID and membership, families living with Alzheimer’s have peace of mind, knowing MedicAlert will be there when you need us most.

Benefits of a MedicAlert ID and membership
for families living with Alzheimer’s:

  • We're your voice: If your loved one can’t speak for themselves, their MedicAlert ID alerts others to their condition and will trigger a call to our Emergency Response team.
  • 24/7 emergency protection: Our team will relay critical medical information to first responders in an emergency or wandering incident.
  • 24/7 Wandering Support: If someone wanders or is found because they’ve wandered, MedicAlert will work with local authorities to reunite you as soon as possible.
  • Stay connected: In an emergency or wandering incident, MedicAlert will immediately reach out to emergency contacts so you’re in the know.
  • Peace of mind: A MedicAlert ID and membership is peace of mind, knowing that if your loved one wanders or has a medical emergency, MedicAlert has their back – and yours.
