Are there ID bracelets for Alzheimer's?
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.
