MedicAlert SafelyHome braceletOver time, a person with dementia may have trouble problem-solving, communicating and recognizing their surroundings. As a result, they are at risk of becoming lost, even in familiar places.

Be prepared by signing up for MedicAlert® Safely Home®. This nationwide service was created through a partnership between MedicAlert® Foundation Canada and the Alzheimer Society of Canada to help identify a person with dementia who is lost and assist them to safely return home.
