Safe return bracelets

Safe return bracelets

CHAMPAIGN -- Some new jewelry not only looks good but will make you feel good too.
CHAMPAIGN -- As the cold and snowy weather continues, it may become dangerous to be outside especially if you are out there confused and by accident.  

Every year METCAD takes in calls about dementia and alzheimer patients wandering but a new type of jewelry could keep them from getting lost. 

It is called a 'safe return bracelet.'  Carol Mauck is one of the owners at Circle of Friends adult day care.  She is working to make sure every dementia or alzheimer patient in Champaign County has one. 

Mauck and some students from U of I's Community Learning Lab are looking for grant money to fund the identification jewelry. 

If you would like to help or learn more about the bracelets, give Carol Mauck a call at (217) 359-7937.
