Memory Care Resources for Veterans

A study conducted by NIH (National Institute of Health) found that veterans are twice as likely to develop dementia. Aside from the normal aging process, traumatic brain injuries and post-traumatic stress disorder make veterans more vulnerable to dementia than the general population.

To help veterans and their families, memorycare.com created a guide to memory care for veterans. This resource goes over dementia in detail and shares treatment options as well as available VA programs and resources.

Free Medical Alert Systems for Veterans

Veterans of all ages may be eligible for a free medical alert system from providers that have partnered with the Department of Veterans Affairs. These systems can help you or your loved one remain safer and more independent even when living alone. These devices are sometimes referred to as personal emergency response systems (PERS) and usually take the form of a bracelet or pendant. The features and functionality vary, from basics such as two-way speech to automatic fall detection, GPS and voice guidance.

Whether it’s needed due to a physical disability, health concerns or a simple matter of the years adding up, veterans may qualify for a free medical alert system from the VA or state assistance programs. The VA recommends wearing a medical alert bracelet to get help quickly in many scenarios, from food allergies to Alzheimer’s disease, and for storing vital health information to be accessed in an emergency.

This guide explains the options available for veterans interested in getting a free medical alert system from the VA and how to submit a request. Other potential sources of assistance are also detailed, as well as a state-by-state list of Medicaid programs that may cover the cost.
