Protecting those with dementia or Alzheimer's


Your medical information. On You. Keeping you safe.

There are over 850,000 people currently living with dementia in the UK1, with figures set to rise to over one million by 2021. 

Contrary to popular belief, dementia is not a singular illness. It’s a condition, caused by lots of different diseases. ‘Dementia’ is the collective term for the symptoms of these illnesses. The most common forms of dementia are Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia, Lewy body dementia and frontotemporal dementia2.

How MedicAlert can help you

Whether you are living with dementia or caring for someone with dementia, the impact caused by its symptoms can be scary and overwhelming at times. 
MedicAlert ID allows access to information about the wearer's medical conditions, medications, history, and documentation in the event of an emergency. It also provides details of their emergency contacts if they are lost or confused.

During an emergency

When every moment matters, you may be unable to speak or recall your vital information in a stressful, unexpected situation.

MedicAlert supports you

Your jewellery will alert emergency professionals to your most crucial information through the custom-engraving on the back of your disc.

by relaying information

Forget-Me-Not Bracelet

Peace of mind

We know that those living with dementia or Alzheimer's can often forget to replace their MedicAlert ID jewellery each morning, which means they can be at risk throughout the day.

MedicAlert's Forget-Me-Not Bracelet features a split-ring clasp, ensuring that the bracelet cannot be removed without assistance, along with our most popular classic stainless steel chain and red enamel to draw attention when needed.


Keeping our loved ones safe

When a loved one is diagnosed with dementia, the everyday challenges can be overwhelming, with concerns about them risking to wander, struggling to find the way back home. 

This is why Sarah turned to MedicAlert when her mum, Anne, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Our service provided both mother and daughter with peace of mind, knowing that Anne would be safe at all times.
