Definitely couldn't have known. It's cold, you did the right thing. They really should have an Alzheimer's bracelet or something like they do for peanut allergies though in case of emergency.
I doubt someone with Alzheimer's would be able to wear it if they were in the stage where they would do what the lady in this fml did. they would be very confused and frustrated by it. now if they were in the later/end stages where they couldn't even walk, it wouldn't be necessary at that point lol
They have them. And you can get any medical condition put on a medical bracelet, if you can't find one locally. My local CVS sells Alzheimer's bracelets along with their nut allergy bracelets and diabetes bracelets. Some even have locking clasps where you need a special tool to remove them. There are also GPS locators that can be attached to the person discreetly, where they may not be able to find them.
I'm not sure why 16 is downvoted; I worked for several years with people with dementia and I totally agree with their comment. If they don't recognise the bracelet (most of them "time travel" and live in the past, so wouldn't remember it as theirs) they would remove it thinking it didn't belong to them.
