The Herbert Protocol for Missing People with Dementia

January 22 2020

The Herbert Protocol asks carers, family members and friends of people with Dementia, to complete a form, recording all vital details about their loved one such as:

  • any medication required
  • mobile numbers
  • places previously located
  • a recent photograph

This information can then be shared quickly with the relevant agencies should their loved one be reported missing.

If you have a loved one living with Dementia and are concerned they may go missing, please contact your local Community Support Officer who will assist you in completing the forms.

Details can be found on Gwent Police’s website
