Is there a website where you can buy ID bracelets for wandering Alzheimer's patients? If found, could someone wearing such a bracelet be identified as an Alzheimer's patient with contact information?

Yes. The Alzheimer's Association has partnered with the MedicAlert Foundation to offer the MedicAlert + Safe Return program. The bracelet (or pendant) identifies the wearer's medical conditions (such as being memory impaired) and has a toll-free emergency-response number.

Here is a follow up question, AA recommends Medic Alert on their website, but this is a ongoing subscription why not just get a bracelet with my tele#'s. And be done with it.

I heard about the soft ID Bracelet from a man who has his wife at the same day care that my husband is at. Just on line tring to find it. He loves it, and Ruth doesn't seem to mind it.

$70 for the Alzheimer's Associations bracelet seems really high priced. The Soft ID Bracelet is $20 from Never Lost ID. Plus I can put Jack's name and info right on it.

The Alzheimer's Association MedicAlert Safe Return ID bracelet comes with a live 24/7 emergency repsonse and caregiver notification service. The service also inlcudes storing and managing your loved one's medical history which is very importnat in emergencies. They offer the Advance Directives at no extar charge. They also offer live 24/7 care consulting for caregivers. So, bottomline this is a great service.

QR Codes for Life provides discreet emergency identification as well as a geolocating service which can be triggered if the person has wandered away. The code which can be worn as a zipper pull, shoe slider, hat attachment or bracelet is easily scanned with a free smart phone app which first responders are now carrying. The code leads to a page which can feature a photo, medical information, emergency contact info or any other vital information. http://www.qrcodesforlife.com

Many people wonder when they should have medical jewelry and whether or not they need one in the first place. I really like www.n-styleid.com, they're affordable and look very nice! they also have necklaces too!
