Medical IDs and Alzheimer's

MEDICAL IDs FOR

An Alzheimer’s bracelet or Alzheimer’s jewelry is probably the last thing on anybody's mind when dealing with Alzheimer’s or other related dementia. After all, bracelets, necklaces and anklets may not seem to serve any purpose beyond being decorative. However, when it comes to a condition like Alzheimer’s, being easily identified as having this medical condition is often necessary.

This is why Alzheimer’s bracelets are often worn by individuals with Alzheimer's or a related dementia that wander or may have a medical emergency. An Alzheimer’s medical ID is not just to inform anyone about the wearer's health status but also to alert people, such as rescuers, first-aid staff and medical professionals of the appropriate action to perform when the wearer is involved in an emergency.

Knowledge Can Save a Life

When people with Alzheimer’s were first encouraged to wear Alzheimer’s bracelets, some people were not very supportive of getting "tagged" as a person with dementia. However, the fact that the bracelets were medical alert tags with the ability to provide lifesaving information quickly showed why it was a necessity. Today, even with modern technology, it still is the most important thing a person with Alzheimer’s can wear.

Alzheimer’s requires special care and attention. In some emergencies, the person with Alzheimer’s may not always be able to speak or communicate. He or she may even be unresponsive from a medication error. Furthermore, an emergency may occur when a relative or a friend who has knowledge about the person's dementia may not be around. In these cases, an Alzheimer’s bracelet can silently inform the attending medical personnel of the disease.

Preparing for an Alzheimer's Related Emergency

Alzheimer’s can be a tricky and rather deceptive condition to have, primarily because some days may be worse than others. There may be days when memory and other intellectual abilities are running strong and other days when they are not. Prepare yourself or your loved one by having an Alzheimer’s bracelet that will let the first responders and medical staff know who to call and how to make the appropriate medical decisions that can save a life. In case you are ever in an accident, medical professionals will know the medications that may be necessary in order to treat you, and more importantly, what not to give you based on what medication may already be in you system.

Always ensure that you or your loved one is wearing their Alzheimer’s bracelet at all times and especially before leaving the house. If necessary, pack an extra bracelet during special trips, particularly if you will be travelling alone. Always wear the bracelet where it can be spotted easily and avoid taking it off. New designs will keep it from cramping your style and it can make a huge difference during an emergency situation or wandering event.
