The Herbert Protocol (Safe and Found)

The Herbert Protocol is a national scheme being introduced by West Yorkshire Police  and other agencies which encourages carers to compile useful information which could be used in the event of a vulnerable person going missing.  For people living with someone with dementia, this could be quite common and The Herbert Protocal should give them some peace of mind.

The Herbert Protocol will put systems in place to allow for early intervention when vulnerable people go missing.  The idea is to complete a form recording all vital details such as medication required, mobile numbers, places previously located, photograph etc.  In the event that your family member or friend goes missing, the form can easily be sent or handed to police to reduce the time in gathering information.

The Herbert Protocol is named after George Herbert, a war veteran who lived with dementia.

For more information and to download the form, please go to www.westyorkshire.police.uk/dementia


Side by Side from Alzheimer's Society

If you've been diagnosed with dementia, Side by Side is a new, free service from Alzheimer's Society that will help you do the things you love - or try something new.  With the support of a local volunteer you can continue doing the things you enjoy or take part in a new hobby or activity - it's completely up to you.

Contact your local Side by Side Manager on 01924 373 264 to find out more about how they can help.

Being a Side by Side volunteer is a flexible way to volunteer your time and helps people with dementia to keep doing the things we take for granted.  Email wakefield@alzheimers.org.uk for more information or call 01924 373 264.
