Like most Senior Citizens, Doreen suffers from a number of serious Medical Conditions. Before joining MedicAlert® Foundation, Doreen had a little notebook stored in her handbag that she was constantly updating with her current prescribed Medications and her daughter’s current contact details, But who would know to look for it if she was rushed to hospital and could not communicate?

“The MedicAlert® Service Supported Medical ID is internationally recognised and allows me to take control of my medical records and now allows Emergency Services quick access to my most up to date Medical and Emergency contact information without fossicking around my personal handbag. Every time I visit my GP my Medical Records are automatically updated with MedicAlert® Foundation and available if I’m in an emergency.” — Doreen Fisher
