We are still looking for a vulnerable missing person in Ascot, who went missing on Saturday morning  We understand, he suffers from dementia

A new Protocol was agreed Nationally in January, to assist with locating missing vulnerable people  ‘The Herbert Protocol’

The Protocol is a new tool to help find vulnerable people, particularly, those with dementia, who go missing:


On that page, you will find further links to an ‘Adult at Risk Form’ and an ‘Adult at Risk Profile’

The Adult at Risk Form: is very comprehensive and lists everything, we might need to know to find that person if they go missing; including a photo, dates of birth, full description, ethnicity etc  The form requests that you:


‘Please complete Part 1 and keep this profile in a safe place, so that it can be quickly and easily located, in the event that the person it refers to, goes missing You may want to make several copies, which can be kept by carers, relatives or neighbours Only complete Part 2, at the time the person you care for, goes missing’

 The Adult at Risk Profile: is very similar and again comprehensive.  It needs to be completed and kept somewhere safe

There are also several pieces of technology that can help:

‘Assistive Technology’, can assist an individual to remain independent and safe in their own home  A range of monitoring equipment can be provided, to ensure family or caregivers, know that they are safe: for example, door sensors can be installed to indicate if an individual goes out of the house and does not return in a specified time; a bed sensor can raise an alert if an individual gets out of bed and does not return This equipment can all be linked to a monitoring centre, a pager, or a mobile phone, so the family or caregiver, is alerted

 GPS mobile locators have been developed, to enable people to live more independent lives and can help safer walking They are designed to alert a caregiver that someone has left an area or home, and can be used to locate someone, outdoors This can be helpful in situations, where a person can become disorientated, lost, confused or anxious, as well as providing reassurance, for the caregiver These devices are increasingly used for people with dementia and cognitive impairment, a learning disability, epilepsy or seizures

  • A safety Zone is breached

Two-way voice contact, will help identify the assistance required, to take the appropriate action; contact a friend, family member, carer or the emergency services  They will remain on the line, for as long as necessary  For GPS devices, friends, family members or carers, will be able to log on to an online portal, with their unique login, to easily locate the person with the device, via a simple online map
