Alzheimers & Dementia Medical ID
Do You Need A Bracelet or Medical ID For Alzheimers and Dementia?
Both Alzheimer’s disease and dementia sufferers can benefit from wearing some form of medical ID. A medical id can help first responders, medical staff and other emergency services understand why the wearer might seem disorientated or confused and ensure that they are treated and cared for taking into account their condition.
An Alzheimer’s or dementia medical ID in the form of a bracelet, necklace, or wristband also provides a vital link to the wearer’s family or carer with the inclusion of “in case of emergency” contact details.
In our Alzheimer’s and dementia range you'll find handy ID cards, wristbands, necklaces and bracelets which we can personalise with your details. All prices include free engraving and free UK mainland delivery.
What Should You Put on an Alzheimer’s or Dementia Medical ID?
It is always best to consult with your doctor or specialist to decide what to engrave on your autism medical ID. In the event that this is not possible, we have taken advice from the lovely doctors at Concierge Medical (the multi award-winning private GP service for the Cotswolds and surrounding areas) and recommend the following:
As a minimum, you should put the following on your Alzheimer’s or dementia medical ID:
Your Alzheimer’s or dementia diagnosis.
Your primary ICE (in case of emergency number).
You may also want to include the following:
Any other severe medical conditions (including allergies).
Any medications you may be on.
“See medical card” (if you choose to carry a medical ID card in your phone case or wallet).
If you choose a medical id bracelet that can be engraved on both the front and the back, we recommend that you engrave your Alzheimer’s or dementia diagnosis, name and ICE on the front and any additional medical information on the back.
General advice on engraving:
information should relate to conditions not otherwise discoverable by examination of an unconscious or incapacitated patient.
Important medications should be listed.
Information should be relevant to life-saving or emergency treatment.
Avoid using general terms, e.g. “Allergies: bee stings, nuts” is much more useful than just “Allergies”.
It’s advisable that Alzheimer’s or dementia sufferers wear some sort of medical identification in case of an emergency or extreme disorientation.
A silicone wristband can be a handy way of doing this as they’re comfortable and convenient to wear throughout the day and evening, indoors and out. We have many different colours you can choose from a range of sizes.
Our colourful medical ID bracelets with clasp are one of our most popular products and all of the engraving is on the front of these bracelets. Other popular bracelets in our Alzheimer’s and dementia rangeare the version with the engraving on the inside Deluxe Engraveable Silicone Bracelet (Inside Engraving) (theidbandco.com) or the flatband Medical Flatband (Inside Engraving) (theidbandco.com)
As well as a bracelet or wristband, many people choose to wear a necklace as an alternative or additional way of carrying vital medical information. Our range of engravable dog tags are a great option if you require multiple lines of personalisation as they can fit a minimum of 5 lines of engraving.
Dementia Medicine bags and ID Cards
If you carry medication, our medical bags are perfect for keeping your medication safe. They're also great for traveling and when you go on holiday.
As well as your diabetes alert jewellery, it's also a good idea to have a medical ID card for your wallet or phone. This allows you to carry more detailed information with you, such as your address and NHS number. If you purchase one of our ID cards alongside a necklace or bracelet, we normally advise having 'see medical card' engraved on your chosen piece of jewellery.
