General Information
Description of ServiceMedicAlert® + Alzheimer's Association Safe Return® is a 24-hour nationwide emergency response service for individuals with Alzheimer's or a related dementia who wander or have a medical emergency. The program provides 24-hour, nationwide assistance, no matter when or where the person is reported missing.

Enrollment in the MedicAlert + Safe Return program includes:
- Individualized emblem engraved with MedicAlert + Safe Return's 24-Hour emergency response number.

- 24-hour family notification service during wandering incidents and medical emergencies.

If an individual with Alzheimer's or a related dementia wanders and becomes lost, caregivers can call the emergency response line to report it.

If a citizen or emergency personnel finds the member, they can call the toll-free number listed on the member's ID jewelry. MedicAlert + Safe Return will notify the member's listed contacts, making sure the person is returned home.
