Protect the Alzheimer’s Patients who may wander away from home
My Mom didn’t wander, but I think she might have had she been given more freedom to escape our house or yard.
We already knew of two elderly folks in our neighborhood who wandered away and met with dire circumstances, so we took no chances with Mom.
When Mom moved in with us, we moved locks and bolts high enough that she was unable to reach them and kept all doors locked at all times, even the middle of the day.
I don’t think the person with Alzheimer’s intends to run away. They start walking and don’t realize how far until their surroundings become unfamiliar. Soon enough, they are lost and their home is out of view. This can happen when they are in their very own neighborhood. So don’t underestimate their ability to get lost quickly.
The medic-alert bracelets and necklaces are great in this instance. Most are engraved with address or phone number and could prevent a serious accident or horrible experience for your loved one if they became lost. These nice bracelets and necklaces come in multiple colors and sizes. I saw several in a leather-look for the guys and attractive ones for the ladies.
The Medic-Alert necklace can be strictly to protect, or many add a touch of class with pretty silver chains, logos or even a chic heart or rose.
First responders are trained to look for medical ID to determine if you have a medical condition or dangerous allergies and if you take any critical medications. And, by including emergency contact information on your ID, you can be sure that loved ones will be notified promptly.
Some of the newer bracelets include a Memory Card with USB connection to include the wearer’s vital information, medical history, or phone number and information for the folks to be notified.
