Medic Alert + Safe Return®

Medic Alert® + Alzheimer's Association Safe Return® is a nationwide identification, support and enrollment program that provides assistance when someone with Alzheimer's or a related dementia wanders and becomes lost. Assistance is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. If an enrollee is missing, one phone call immediately activates a community support network to help reunite the lost person with his or her caregiver.

A limited number of scholarships are available for persons unable to afford the registration fee. Contact the Inland Northwest Chapter office at 509.473.3390 or email joel.loiacono@alz.org for information.
