MiCode Users

Many different people can benefit from carrying MiCode, depending on their health needs and situations:

Alzheimer's And Dementia

Alzheimer's disease causes people to lose their ability to recognize familiar places and faces.  It's common for a person living with dementia to wander or become lost or confused about their location, even in the early stage. Micode ensures that, even in moments of confusion or emergencies, your loved one's medical needs and contacts are readily available to caregivers or medical professionals.
