If you have dementia, you need a MedicAlert

How MedicAlert worksMedicAlert provides support to people with dementia during times of need such as memory loss or confusion.

By wearing MedicAlert jewellery, first responders are alerted to the wearer's condition and will know best how to help through quick accurate treatment.

MedicAlert can also provide any emergency contact details held on your record to first responders, ensuring the right people are informed.
