MedicAlert® Safely Home®
People with Alzheimer's or a related disease are no different than anyone else. They want to be able to move about freely and live as independently as possible. Changes in the brain can lead to a person with the disease becoming confused in familiar places, and forgetting the way to get safely home.
Registering yourself, or the person you support, with MedicAlert® Safely Home® can give you the peace of mind to continue living as independently as possible, for as long as possible.
If the time comes when becoming lost is a worry, you will have the comfort of knowing that help is at hand. Planning ahead now can make it easier to manage a difficult situation later.
Exciting News! MedicAlert Foundation Canada has partnered with Durham Regional Police Services
Safety is a community outcome and in order to ensure a safe community especially for those who are most vulnerable such as those living with dementia, a community response is needed. Collaboration is essential between individuals and local organizations in 'ensuring a safe community for people to live, work and play'.
An informed community is a stronger and safer community. If you know someone who could benefit from a MedicAlert ID, please share the link below and help us spread the word to others who will benefit from this opportunity.
