If you are concerned about getting lost, or a person you know getting lost, then you may want to consider completing the Herbert Protocol. An example of the protocol from West Yorkshire police: misper17
Please see the Alzheimer’s Society for more information.
The protocol asks for information that the police would need to find someone. This includes a recent photograph, and any known places the person is likely to be trying to get to.
As the Police are often called to find people who reside in care homes, it would be beneficial for them to complete the protocol too.
