Dementia Safe Haven’s project

Dementia Safe Haven’s is a partnership with Dorset Police and Dorset Dementia Friendly Communities.

This project is currently under review

A safe haven is a provision of a temporary place of safety within a care home /day centre setting for anyone who may be living with a dementia type condition if they are found wandering and is unable to provide sufficient information to take them home. A safe haven will allow police to have access for a short period of time to a suitable setting that is not a police station whilst they make enquiries to identify the individual.
