A MedicAlert ID and membership with Safe and Found provides an extra level of safety and security for persons living with dementia, their families and caregivers.
How It Works
If an individual with Alzheimer’s or dementia wanders and becomes lost, caregivers can call MedicAlert’s 24/7 Emergency Response Team to report it. That activates MedicAlert’s specialized Safe and Found services in a wandering incident.
MedicAlert will create a missing person report and activate a community support network including local law enforcement and hospitals to help locate the person who wandered. MedicAlert will also share vital information with first responders as needed.
If someone with dementia is found wandering, citizens or first responders can call MedicAlert’s toll free number on the person’s MedicAlert ID to identify the individual and initiate outreach to their emergency contacts.
In either case, the goal is to quickly reunite the person who wandered with their family and loved ones.
