Ok, bare with us on this one. We know, we know, no one wants to think of themselves as “old” or “frail” enough for a Medical ID anything. Even though we’re all about thriving here at Third Age Mojo, we also know that our loved ones have probably started to worry about us a little once there were more than 60 candles on the cake at birthday time. (Talk about the fire hazard!)
We also know that staying independent is important for all of us. And while we don’t love the reason these are necessary, we do kind of love the updated MedicAlert ID necklaces.
If you’re like me, you probably have friends and family that are just a little more concerned about what might happen when you’re out and about, or even at home, and something happens. These MedicAlert necklaces are the best way to communicate critical health information when maybe you can’t speak for yourself. They’re custom engraved just for you and there are so many styles to choose from that we bet you’ll find one you love!
Select your favorite style (starting at only $24.99) and fill out each line on the back with any health issues that someone might need to be aware of – like diabetic, asthmatic, etc.Then simply make it a part of your everyday wear and see the compliments you get. We think the necklaces are nicer than the bracelets, but there’s even flex ID bracelets and sports bands for when you’re out being active. Just choose the one you’ll enjoy wearing the most.
If you want to take that necklace or bracelet up a notch, MedicAlert offers a membership program that helps to deliver your critical information faster, with your own personal profile and emergency health profile included.
We feel that the $24.99 Basic plan is probably enough for most of us to get our kids and loved ones off our backs, but they have more options available if you might need a bit more support, like emergency contact notification and physician notification to get you the best possible care.
Whether you need a membership really depends on your personal situation, but at such a low entry point we feel it might be worthwhile for anyone.
