How Alzheimer’s Bracelets Could Help Your Loved One
When is a piece of jewelry more than just a fashion statement? The answer: when it’s being used to keep Alzheimer’s patients safe!
Medical alert Alzheimer’s bracelets do just that. Similar to the dog-tag necklaces worn by members of the military, these bracelets serve as a form of identification.
The premise is simple: oftentimes Alzheimer’s patients wander away from their houses or care facilities and become disoriented and/or lost.
That’s where the bracelet comes in. Passersby who see the bracelet are easily able to identify the person wearing it as someone who suffers from Alzheimer’s, take action and provide the assistance needed to make sure the person returns safely home. The bracelet lists the patient’s name, home address, names of family members, and a phone number to call.
If your loved one suffers from Alzheimer’s, getting him or her an identification bracelet may be helpful in giving you peace of mind knowing he or she is safe.
