Herbert Protocol for people with Dementia

In September 2021, Glasgow HSCP along with Community Planning Partners (Glasgow City Council, Police Scotland and others) and Alzheimer Scotland launched the Herbert Protocol. Families, friends and carers of people living with dementia are being urged to complete the form that can help find people more quickly if they go missing. You can find out more about the Herbert Protocol and access the form on our dedicated webpage. Watch the video, which includes a carer’s voice at the heart of it and talks about how the protocol can make a real difference in helping to keep people living with dementia safe.

Power of Attorney (POA)

Power of Attorney is a legal document giving a nominated person the authority to act or make decisions on another person's behalf if that person is no longer able to look after their financial or personal affairs.

Families across Glasgow are being urged to obtain Power of Attorney - a legal document that allows an agreed person to act on their behalf in the event of an emergency, illness or accident.

Power of Attorney is a legal document.  It requires solicitor involvement.  For people on low income, assistance can be accessed through the city's Community Law Centres or GAIN network.

Carers can also talk to someone by contacting your local carers centre or the Carer Information Line.
