For more information on the MedicAlert + Safe Return® program please call your local Regional Office or our 24 Hour Helpline at

To report a wandering incident:
Call 911. Then call 1-800-625-3780

Alzheimer's Association's MedicAlert + Safe Return® program is a 24 hour nation-wide emergency response service for individuals with Alzheimer's, or a related dementia, who wander and become lost locally or far from home.

If an individual wanders and becomes lost, caregivers can call the 24 hour emergency response line to report it. A community support network will be activated, including local Alzheimer's Association chapters and law enforcement agencies, to help reunite the family member or caregiver with the person who wandered. With this enhanced service, critical medical information will be provided to emergency responders when needed.
