Care Campaign for the Vulnerable was founded over five years ago by former News Agency Reporter and Marketing /Promotions Executive Jayne Connery from Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire. Care Campaign for the Vulnerable was set up to champion and support safety monitoring to be made mandatory in public areas of dementia care/nursing homes. The success of this initiative led Jayne to become a advocate to familes and family carers needing support, Care Campaign Advocacy Service CCAS - (Care Campaign Advocacy Service). Care Campaign for the Vulnerable was invited to take part in the Care Quality Commission (CQC) Roundtable on Technology as well as invited to deliver a speech at the Plymouth’s International Dementia Conference, talking about the important work Care Campaign undertakes.
Jayne ‘s own personal experience with a loved one in the care home sector ended in January 2016. Five years witnessing (in communal areas of care homes) resident falls, including vulnerable residents not being attended to in a acceptable waiting time, inappropriate manual handling, lack of 'specific dementia' training, unacceptable ratio of care staff for residents, as well as carers not supported by managers. This became the focus behind the tireless promoting of safety monitoring in all public areas, exits and entrances to be made mandatory in all dementia/ care and nursing homes in the UK, attracting many tens of thousands of supporters, including care staff, businesses, MP’s and care sector professionals/providers.
Jayne divides her time being a Care-Partner to her loved one, raising awareness on the important work of CARE CAMPAIGN for the VULNERABLE - this includes being invited into care homes, and a lead Advocate (Care Campaign Advocacy Service) contacted by families and dedicated family carers who require guidance, help and support. Care Campaign for the Vulnerable is asked to attend seminars /conferences/after dinner to talk about the importance of safety in care for those living wth dementia and their families. Jayne fundraises for dementia charities and as a Rotarian, promotes safety and better dementia care at her local Gerrard's Cross /Chalfont St Peter and surrounding Rotary Clubs.
