EVERY ID IS A CAREGIVER MEDICAL ID
Custom engraving means every ID works for you!
Choose the style you prefer, and we will engrave it with your caretaker status and other pertinent information.
Often, people become caretakers for their elderly, infirm, or ill family members. For example, when a parent is living with a terminal illness or Alzheimer’s, often his or her grown children will provide in-home care as long as possible or appropriate. Sometimes younger parents become caregivers when they have small children with serious illnesses, diseases, delays, or disabilities. For instance, as of 2014, 1 in 68 children in the US is diagnosed with autism, and that means millions of parents find themselves serving the dual role of parent and caregiver for a disabled child.
A CAREGIVER MEDICAL ID OFFERS DAILY PROTECTION
When you are a caregiver, even if you have no personal need of a medical ID necklace or bracelet, wearing one as an ICE ID is always a good idea. ICE IDs (In Case of Emergency) are a great way to impart key information about the person(s) in your charge when you are unable to advocate for them yourself. For instance, in a car accident, if EMTs reach you first and you are unconscious, your ICE ID will let them know that you are typically in the company of a person who requires extra care. Additionally, by listing emergency contacts on your ICE ID, if those you care for are with you during an accident, first responders can quickly reach secondary caregivers to help.
If you are a caretaker, wearing medical ID jewelry for ICE ID purposes is imperative. We recommend listing your name along with the relevant diagnosis(es), medications, and allergies of those you care for, along with emergency contact numbers. Of course, when listing for other people, it’s hard to fit it all in. You may want to indicate that those you care for also wear ICE IDs or medical ID jewelry, and you may want to refer to a wallet card with further information. Here are some examples of what to engrave on a caregiver medical ID:
