Lincolnshire Police have launched the Dementia Safeguarding scheme which sees members of your communities who are living with dementia offered a wrist band like a watch.
The watch contains their next of kins contact name and number. This allows the person to retain their freedom and independence but also giving them a little safety net in that if they forgot where they are or how to get home.
The bracelets can be worn or carried by people living with dementia so, if they get lost, police or members of the public can quickly access details of the next of kin and contact them. These are not trackers, but details can be retrieved simply by placing a mobile phone against the device.
