We think the Herbert Protocol is as important as Purple Alert. The Herbert Protocol is a form designed to make sure that, if someone goes missing, the Police can get access to important information about that person as soon as possible. We highly recommend you print this form and fill it with as much information as possible now, before a moment of crisis. Then keep it in a safe place and give it to the Police if the person you’re caring for goes missing.
It is important that the person with dementia is involved in all the decision making processes. We produced this leaflet to help facilitating this decision making process.
We produced a leaflet to explain what to do when a person with dementia is missing.
