Safe & Found
MedicAlert began its Safe & Found Program in 2012 when we were asked by the Alzheimer's Society and the RCMP to take on the management of the National Wandering Registry. Since then, we've protected more than 50,000 people living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias with the help of our blue dementia ID and the conditions-specific health information stored securely in our Subscriber Health Information Database.
But The ID Is Just The Beginning.
Dementia, according to the World Health Organization, is one of the top 10 leading causes of death in the world… yes, top 10! It is also one of the fastest growing disease groups in Canada. In fact, the dementia population in Canada is expected to double in the next 6 years. It’s also well known that 60% of people living with dementia will wander. The challenge for care partners is not knowing if their loved one will wander or when it will happen.
Safe & Found not only helps people living with dementia and their care partners, it also helps fund ground-breaking research. With your gift, you can change the life of someone living with dementia.
