Alzheimer's Association's MedicAlert + Safe Return® program

If an individual wanders and becomes lost, caregivers can call the 24 hour emergency response line to report it. A community support network will be activated, including local Alzheimer's Association chapters and law enforcement agencies, to help reunite the family member or caregiver with the person who wandered. With this enhanced service, critical medical information will be provided to emergency responders when needed.
