KEEPING PEOPLE WITH DEMENTIA SAFE AND FOUND
The Herbert Protocol form records vital details such as medication required, mobile numbers, places previously located and a photograph to help locate the person if they ever go missing.
The Herbert Protocol is a national scheme being introduced by the 5 Search & Rescue teams of Thames Valley in partnership with Thames Valley Police and other agencies which encourages carers to compile useful information which could be used in the event of a vulnerable person going missing.
Carers, family members and friends can complete the form in advance, and in the event of your family member or friend going missing, the form can be easily sent or handed to the Police or Search & Rescue to reduce the time taken in gathering this information.
The Herbert Protocol initiative is named after George Herbert, a War veteran of the Normandy landings, who lived with dementia. He died while he was ‘missing’ on his way to his childhood home.
