Focus on Dementia

Laura Rumsey, Rogers and Norton

After attending the local NNUH Dementia Fayre and listening to the specialist speakers it was important to expand on our knowledge of Dementia. It was good to see that this area is being researched in depth and solutions found to assist those living with Dementia.

A very practical step that was discussed by the Norfolk Constabulary was the “Herbert Protocol”. This is a tool designed to keep information on those that have Dementia. This short form can be completed by family members to have key information on their loved one to assist if that person were to go missing. This means that the police can respond in a targeted way to assist in finding that person quickly and safely.

If you wish to complete this form for your family members please find the link below: -

Rogers & Norton are always eager to support and promote Dementia awareness at every opportunity. As a Dementia Friendly organisation we are actively engaged with Dementia Action Awareness week and aim to use the focus to raise funds for specialist Admiral Dementia nurses in Norfolk, by holding a series of bake sales for staff and clients.

We are also marking Dementia Action week by reducing the cost of a Lasting Power of Attorney by 20%, for any appointments booked between the 20th and 25th May.
