Alzheimer's Alert Bracelets & Necklaces
The Bright Focus Foundation reports that at least 50 million people worldwide live with Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of dementia. If you or a loved one are living with Alzheimer’s Disease or any other form of dementia, Alzheimer’s bracelets and necklaces from Lauren’s Hope are excellent tools that can help first responders and Good Samaritans provide efficient assistance during medical emergencies.
An Alzheimer's medical alert bracelet may also be helpful during incidences of wandering, which the Alzheimer’s Association estimates occurs with at least six in ten people with Alzheimer’s. Gain peace of mind, knowing that your loved one is wearing a custom-engraved Alzheimer’s necklace or bracelet, keeping their identification and emergency contact information close at hand should the need arise.
The Importance of Alzheimer’s ID Bracelets & Necklaces
The most common form of dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease impacts more than 10% of Americans 65 and older. According to the Alzheimer’s Association,
“Alzheimer's is a progressive disease, where dementia symptoms gradually worsen over a number of years….As Alzheimer's advances through the brain it leads to increasingly severe symptoms, including disorientation, mood and behavior changes; deepening confusion about events, time and place; unfounded suspicions about family, friends and professional caregivers; more serious memory loss and behavior changes; and difficulty speaking, swallowing and walking.”
These symptoms make wearing an Alzheimer's ID bracelet or necklace particularly important. The National Institute on Aging (part of the NIH) recommends that anyone with Alzheimer’s, “...wears a medical bracelet. If the person gets lost and can’t communicate clearly, an ID will let others know about his or her illness. It also shows where the person lives.”
There are several reasons why Alzheimer’s bracelets are a daily necessity:
- Choosing a custom-engraved Alzheimer’s bracelet or Alzheimer’s necklace is designed to help provide daily protection and a safe return if someone becomes lost or disoriented, or in situations where they are without their identification or medical ID card.
- Family members of seniors with Alzheimer’s often gain peace of mind knowing that their loved one’s emergency contacts are always right at hand.
- Emergency responders can use an Alzheimer’s medical alert bracelet to quickly determine that their patient has this form of dementia. Ideally this helps people avoid unnecessary tests and lengthy evaluations while also providing the means to contact caregivers or loved ones quickly.
What to Include on an Alzheimer’s ID Bracelet or Necklace
When someone wears an Alzheimer’s medical ID bracelet, it is engraved with his or her name, Alzheimer’s diagnosis, and emergency contact information. Some people also choose to engrave the wearer’s physical address due to the risk of wandering.
With custom engraving available, an Alzheimer’s alert can be engraved with additional medical conditions, allergies, medications, and treatment restrictions. So while Alzheimer’s medical ID jewelry serves the purpose of communicating the wearer’s identity and Alzheimer’s diagnosis, it can also make the wearer’s other medical needs available to medical personnel at all times.
Lauren’s Hope Personalized Alzheimer's Bracelets
People often ask about unremovable IDs or bracelets that can be locked in some way. Such medical alerts can pose a safety hazard and make it hard to access key information in an emergency. It is best to choose a medic alert for dementia or Alzheimer’s that simply has an integrated or otherwise non-obvious clasp to discourage removal without making it unduly difficult.
Some of our most popular Alzheimer’s bracelet options include nickel-free stainless steel bands with small, flip-open clasps:
Sometimes, a person may prefer to wear an Azheimer’s ID bracelet that feels more like a bracelet s/he would wear simply as a piece of jewelry. This is where our stylish chains really stand out:
Finally, keep in mind that custom engraving means any of our med IDs can be an Alzheimer’s alert bracelet or necklace. Here are a few of our latest designs:
