To respond to the crisis of the vulnerable members of our society, both adult and children, MedicAlert® has launched the UNCEDO Project that aims to provide MedicAlert membership and bracelets to these people. MedicAlert® will maintain medical records and ensure that Medical staff, in the case of emergency, will have access to the information needed to provide the best care for these members.
MANDELA DAY - 18th July 2013
When you become an Ambassador for the MedicAlert® Foundation of Southern Africa, you will join a dynamic team of volunteers who improve other peoples’ lives merely by information sharing.
Simply spread the word regarding the benefits of MedicAlert® Membership and not only will you be assisting other people by informing them of this great service but for every three new members you sign up, we will donate a membership to a vulnerable child.
Otherwise, promote these potentially life saving products at your local chemist, your doctor’s surgery and to all your friends and family.
MEDICALERT® CARES ABOUT SENIOR CITIZENS
At MedicAlert® we know that You’ll do everything you can to protect and care for a loved one suffering from Dementia, but you can’t always be there. Unfortunately, six out of 10 people with Dementia will eventually wander. You can’t know when it will happen, but MedicAlert® in partnership with Dementia SA has developed a special bracelet to support our members. Membership is also available to the Carer at a reduced cost. Order now

The Board of Trustees and Staff members are committed to supporting the millions of vulnerable children, youths and the aged in South Africa. And in regard to this issue MedicAlert® has provided 3000 previously disadvantaged South Africans membership annually. The support groups identify the communities suffering most serious cases of poverty and who have the greatest need, and MedicAlert® provides the membership and services to the beneficiaries.
