MedicAlert services can be incredibly important to help seniors maintain independent living while giving their loved ones peace of mind. During MedicAlert awareness month, we want to highlight the revolutionary care MedicAlert, and now, Electronic Caregiver, provided for seniors at a time when they needed it most.
History of MedicAlert
The MedicAlert Foundation was created in 1956 and is recognized as the first national medical ID system in America. It was founded by Dr. Marion Collins and his wife after an unfortunate incident in which their daughter went into anaphylactic shock and nearly died after receiving medication she was allergic to. Dr. and Mrs. Collins knew the importance of being able to share medical information such as chronic illnesses, diseases, and allergies to medical professionals easily.
At first, they tied a bracelet with medical information to her wrist, but after she went to college, Dr. Collins had a silver bracelet made with her medical information on it. This bracelet gained popularity over the years and others also found it to be a need to share medical information in an emergency.
Over the years, the MedicAlert Foundation grew more prominent, and medical information was digitized and stored. What hasn’t changed is the 24/7 toll-free call-center staff who relay the medical information to the first responders on the scene. This was once Dr. and Marion Collins in their living room providing information to people who called the number found on the bracelets.
MedicAlert and medical ID information has saved thousands of lives and become a standard for people with severe illnesses or allergies. It especially comes in handy as people age and have more medical issues to share with medical professionals in the event of an emergency.
