MedicAlert + Safe Return will provide enhanced services including assistance when a person wanders or is lost and access to vital medical information in time of need. A call to the MedicAlert + Safe Return hotline will activate a community support network, including the local Alzheimer's Association Chapters and law enforcement agencies, to help reunite lost persons with their caregiver. Additionally, once they are found, wanderers often require medical attention. MedicAlert enables first responders to access the wanderer's personal health records and quickly treat the individual.

Beginning November 1, 2007, both MedicAlert and the Alzheimer's Association will begin marketing the new purple colored MedicAlert + Safe Return identification bracelet specifically designed for persons afflicted with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias.

In addition, caregivers will also have the option to obtain a "caregiver bracelet or pendant" including all the benefits of the MedicAlert Advantage program. This caregiver program ensures that in an emergency, first responders are alerted that they are treating a caregiver for a person with Alzheimer's or related dementia. Caregivers can easily obtain and update personal information in the system, including medication dosages, allergies, implanted devices, physician and family contacts, i
