Help for families with wandering adults and children

<h2medicalert partners with local law enforcement to bring help to families.

There is now a free program available to family members of adults with dementia and children with autism spectrum disorder who wander from home. According to this article in the Daily Freeman, Medicalert’s Safe Return Program provides family members with an ID bracelet and related services to help families bring their loved one back home safely. This service includes 24/7 emergency response and notification services, among other services.

Families who have a child enrolled at the Center for Spectrum Services can also enroll in the program if appropriate.

Family members can contact MedicAlert, the Hudson Valley Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, or the Center for Spectrum Services for more information.
