MedicAlert® with 24/7 Wandering Support
The Alzheimer’s Association, in collaboration with MedicAlert Foundation, provides membership plans with 24/7 Wandering Support, a nationwide emergency response service for individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia who wander or have a medical emergency. If a member wanders and is missing, one phone call immediately activates MedicAlert’s Emergency Response Team to help reunite the person living with dementia with his or her family. Members can choose from a variety of ID products, including bracelets and necklaces. Learn more.
Alzheimer's Association TrialMatch®
is a free, easy-to-use clinical studies matching service that generates customized lists of studies based on user-provided information.
Individuals with dementia or those who are at risk of developing it, caregivers and healthy volunteers with no dementia issues are needed today to help advance Alzheimer's research.
By participating in clinical research, you can help accelerate progress and provide valuable insight into potential treatments and methods of prevention. Without the participation of people like you, finding a cure would not be possible.
