Anyone who encounters a person in need can use a smartphone to scan the SOS-ID to know who to contact. SOS-ID provides vital, often life-saving medical info such as blood type, medical history and existing conditions to first responders, so that very precious second is saved, and treatment can start without further delay.
According to the Alzheimers Association, Alzheimer’s disease causes people to lose their ability to recognize familiar places and faces. It’s common for a person living with dementia to wander or become lost or confused about their location, and it can happen at any stage of the disease. Six in ten people living with dementia will wander at least once; many do so repeatedly. Although common, wandering can be dangerous — even life-threatening — and the stress of this risk weighs heavily on caregivers and family.
Focusing on other children playing on the beach or playground, on a dog or a cat, or any other distraction might cause your child to wander off, and it has more to do with curiosity than a desire to annoy you. But such situations not only create a lot of worries and stress but also put your child in potential danger. If this happens, SOS-ID will provide vital info to immediately contact the parents.
When scanned with a smartphone SOS-ID shows your medical & contact info in a free, easy to use app. Your SOS-ID is covered by a Lifetime guarantee when a Premium subscription is contracted within 7 days of purchase of your SOS-ID.
