Dementia Information

    The Herbert Protocol is a system to help in the search for people living with Dementia-related illnesses.  The Herbert Protocol is a national scheme 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 in advance, a form recording all vital details, such as medication required, mobile numbers, places previously located, a photograph etc. In the event of your family member or friend going missing, the form can be easily sent or handed to the police 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.  Hard copies of this are available at Eastwood Memory Cafe.

    This Is Me is a support tool to enable person-centred care.  It provides an easy and practical way of recording who the person is. The form includes space to include details on the person’s cultural and family background; events, people and places from their lives; preferences, routines and their personality.
