How MedicAlert can help you


We know that autism can be challenging for you and your family

Autism is much more common than most people think. There are around 700,000 autistic people in the UK - more than 1 in 1001.

It is not an illness or a disease. All autistic people share certain challenges, but being autistic will affect them in different ways. Some of them say the world feels overwhelming and this can cause them considerable anxiety. Some autistic people also have learning disabilities, mental health issues or other medical conditions2, meaning there are different levels of support needed.

Many people struggle with social and communication difficulties. With the right sort of support, all can be helped to live a more fulfilling life of their own choosing3.

"MedicAlert allows Jamie to take part in all the activities he wishes to; it also gives us, his parents, the reassurance that he will be safe, as people around him will know his situation, even if he is not able to communicate." - Ann, Jamie's mum

How MedicAlert can help you

Autistic children and adults may have difficulty communicating if they are lost or in an emergency.
If you are one of them, MedicAlert speaks for you when you can't. 

Your medical ID jewellery will alert people to your most vital information and it also allows access to your full medical record that contains all details on your medical conditions, allergies, medications you may need and next-of-kin contact details. 

As a MedicAlert member, you can nominate one or more advocates to help you set up and manage your medical record.

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

Additional information can be accessed, such as medications, next-of-kin contact info, specialist clinic details or important documents.

for fast accurate treatment

Risks of error and complications are heavily reduced, ultimately helping you to get back on your feet and back to normality.
