Protecting Elderly Parents

Alzheimer’s and dementia are afflictions no one wants to see their aging parents suffer through. Unfortunately, these diseases are a sad reality for many families. Whether you choose to care for your elderly parents at home or have them live in a special care facility, it’s important for them to wear an Alzheimer’s bracelet at all times, in case of emergency.

Even under the most watchful eyes, an elderly person with Alzheimer’s or dementia is still likely to find a way to slip out of sight. If this ever happens, then you want to be sure that your elderly parent or patient is wearing an Alzheimers bracelet. Alzheimer’s bracelets clearly say Alzheimer’s on the front and list emergency contact information on the back so emergency personnel or good Samaritans can help your reunite with your missing parent. Give yourself peace of mind by getting your elderly loved one an Alzheimer’s bracelet.

Medical ID Bracelet on Matlock

In a recent replay of a Matlock show called “The Informant”, the killer was identified by the Medical ID Bracelet he wore showing he was allergic to penicillin.  He was not wearing the bracelet the day after the murder and it was shown that the clasp on the bracelet was broken when he committed the murder.  Matlock found where the bracelet was taken to be repaired and obtained it for evidence.  Based on this the jury found the accused person innocent.

Jewelry You Never Take Off

There’s one piece of jewelry that my best friend Nicole never takes off. It’s not an heirloom piece or even a gift from her boyfriend. She wears a silver medical id bracelet that lets everyone know, in case of emergency, that she has epilepsy.

Nicole first started having seizures her senior year of high school. Because of other medical conditions she has, finding the right medication to manage her seizures has been a continuing struggle. Though she has greater control than she used to, she still has grand mal seizures a couple times a year. She wears her epilepsy bracelet just in case she has a grand mal seizure in a public or unfamiliar place. The information is valuable to EMTs and other medical professionals in emergency situations.
