Drive set for August 25
If an individual with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia wanders and becomes lost, caregivers can call the 24-hour emergency response line (1-800-625-3780) to report it and a community support network will be activated.
The Alzheimer’s Association Houston & Southeast Texas Chapter is proud to partner with the Fort Bend Junior Service League and First Colony Mall to offer Fort Bend County’s first Safe Return + Medic Alert Registration Drive on Saturday, August 25 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at First Colony Mall.
A limited number of free Safe Return Registrations will be offered. Volunteers will be on hand to take photos of your love ones and process registration forms. Learn more about Safe Return + Medic Alert at www.alz.org/care/dementia-medic-alert-safe-return.asp.
The Alzheimer’s Association offers MedicAlert + Safe Return®, 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.
