Dementia Safeguarding Wristband
We are now working with 'Avon & Somerset Police' to safeguard people living with dementia.
We will have 50 of these wristbands in the office for our clients so feel free to ring the office on 01934 710073 or pop in.
Here is some more information:
'A bespoke scheme set up by Avon and Somerset Police to help safeguard people living with dementia is now into its seventh year.
The scheme, also known as the Herbert Protocol, enables families to upload vital information about their loved one via our website, which can be quickly accessed by the police should the need arise to conduct a missing person search.
Thanks to charitable funding, free ‘wearable tech’ wristbands are now also available through the scheme. The wristbands store this vital information, which can then be retrieved by emergency services, health professionals or members of the public using a smartphone, to help return the wearer to safety if they are found lost or in need of assistance.
