 Information on The Herbert Protocol

 There is nothing more frightening or distressing than when a loved one, friend or neighbour fails to return when they should.

For people living with someone with dementia, this could be quite common and The Herbert Protocol could give you some peace of mind.

The Herbert Protocol is a national scheme being introduced locally by Greater Manchester Police and other agencies which encourages carers and family members to compile useful key information which could be used in the event of a person with dementia going missing.

 Do you care for someone who has dementia and worry that they might go missing?
