Care Campaign for the Vulnerable was founded over five years ago by former Marketing /Promotions Executive Jayne Connery from Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire. It was set up to champion and to rally support for safety monitoring to be made mandatory in communal areas in ALL dementia care homes across the UK. The preventable neglect and failings in her own loved one's care led Jayne to become a Champion of better care standards - helping familes and family carers needing support and guidance. While undertaking this work she began to understand the many pressures and the sometimes unrealistic expectations being placed on good, conscientious care providers in the sector and therefore giving a balanced understanding on how safety monitoring would be a postive for not only residents and families but care providers and dedicated carers. We are passionate championing the rights of our elderly, vulnerable, their families and family carers. We were recently invited to participate in the Care Quality Commission (CQC) Roundtable on Technology and asked to deliver a key speech at the Plymouth’s International Dementia Conference in April 2018 about the important work of Care Campaign for the Vulnerable. Our safety monitoring in care homes initiative made headlines with front page coverage in the National press, gaining full support of MP's, including Dominic Grieve MP former Attorney General, now promising to take our safety monitoring to be mandatory in communal areas in all care homes to Parliament. Jayne continues to help support families as well as working with Care Providers to encourage on how safety monitoring can help Providers deliver better and safer delivery of care across the sector.
Founder Jayne Connery’s own personal experience ended in January 2016 when she took her mother out of the care sector and back home to be cared for. Families and carers telling us they often witnessed (in communal areas ) resident’s falling, vulnerable elderly not being attended to in a acceptable waiting time, recruitment of inadequate and untrained staff, inappropriate manual handling, lack of specialised training in challenging behaviours in dementia care, unacceptable and inadequate ratio of care staff for vulnerable residents, elderly living with cognitive impairment not receiving the agreed one to one care as well as good care staff struggling to cope when not being supported by senior managers. This became the focus behind the tireless promoting and championing of safety monitoring in communal areas, exits and entrances to be made mandatory in all dementia/ care and nursing facilities in the UK, attracting many tens of thousands of supporters, including ,families in care, professional businesses, care sector professionals/providers and MP's.
We offer a free independent Support Service, advising families and family carers effected by inadequate care. Care Campaign for the Vulnerable is frequently asked to attend care homes /seminars /conferences to talk about the importance of safety in dementia care for those living with dementia and their families. We fundraise for dementia charities as well as attempting daring challenges to raise awareness to the Care Campaign for the Vulnerable initiative. Founder Jayne Connery is a Associate Member of the Rotary, promoting safety and better dementia care at Gerrard's Cross /Chalfont St Peter and surrounding Rotary Clubs.
