MedicAlert and Safe Return
The Safe Return Program is a national information and photo database that operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It works through Alzheimer's Association chapters across the country, Medic-Alert, law enforcement and other emergency responder agencies. The Safe Return Program will provide identification products such as:
- Clothing labels with the toll-free 800 number on them
- Jewelry, such as necklaces and bracelets
- Wallet cards
How It Works
When a family or caregiver notifies Safe Return that their family member has wandered, the missing person's photograph and information are faxed to local law enforcement agencies. Anyone who finds the lost person calls the toll free number shown on the identification product the person is wearing and the family is contacted.
