PCSO Kerri Adams Lewis has been visiting care homes in Kinmel Bay to promote the Herbert Protocol!
North Wales Police is committed to becoming a dementia friendly organisation. As part of this commitment the Force is implementing the Herbert Protocol.
The aim of the scheme is to help keep people who are living with dementia safe, particularly if, as their condition progresses they start to 'walk about' which is not unusual following diagnosis. Often people will only travel a short distance, maybe into the garden or down the street and will return a short time later. However, some people can get lost and go missing. This can lead to feelings of confusion, fear and vulnerability for individuals and their families, particularly at night time or in inclement weather conditions.
The Herbert Protocol is designed to assist in locating individuals safe and well should they go missing, and provide reassurance to family and friends that the police have all the information they need to help locate the individual. The Herbert Protocol is a national initiative adopted by North Wales Police, as well as many other police forces around the UK. #dementiafriendly ... See MoreSee Less
