Because 60% of individuals with Alzheimer’s will wander, Alzheimer’s Tennessee and MedicAlert Foundation International have teamed together to help improve the overall safety of those living with Alzheimer’s or related dementia.
MedicAlert Found is a program designed to protect the health and safety of those living with Alzheimer’s or related dementia across the country.
Operating as a live 24-hour emergency response service; any person with Alzheimer’s who experiences a medical emergency, or who may wander and become lost will receive exceptional treatment and care while first responders work with a MedicAlert Emergency Response Specialist to safely reunite patients with their loved ones.How MedicAlert helps in a wandering emergency
