Emergency Medical Information Kit
Most of us do not plan for a medical emergency, however, they happen! In order to help you be prepared, the Senior and Community Resource Center has Emergency Medical Information Kits available. Inside, you will find a form to complete and place on your refrigerator so that in the event the paramedics come to your home, a summary of your medical history and list of your medications can be easily located. To obtain a free kit for your use, please contact us at SeniorandCommunityResourceCenter@alexian.net or 847-956-5465 at Alexian Brothers Medical Center and 847-839-6481 at St. Alexius Medical Center.
