 Care Campaign For The Vulnerable

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable is learning of the pressures faced by conscientious led Care Providers striving to offer a caring and safe environment to both service users and staff. Safety monitoring is proving to be a invaluable care assist tool - bringing a more open and transparent culture into care homes as well as saving valuable resources within the care home sector and the NHS

Case Studies

Our late grandmother lived with dementia and was denied her dignity and respect... safety monitoring is needed in the care of our most vulnerable

Added on 22nd July 2020

Warning - If you scroll down you will see photograph that you may find upsetting. A responsible organisation we do not show identity to distressing content.

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable is told by a family we support of their deep distress when they saw devastating photos of their late grandmother 'upside down' in a chair taken by a trusted care worker who alledgedly then placed on a private group chat. An investigation by police and appropriate authorities was conducted and the family say were left 'devastated' when a phone call by West Yorkshire police confirmed they would not be bringing any criminal charges because there wasn't 'enough evidence'. The family say they are horrified at the treatment suffered to their late grandmother that caused her severe distress and say it was an 'infringment on her dignity and human rights'.

Leanne - Granddaughter

''We can not believe South Yorkshire police are not proceeding any further with the investigation into our grandmother's abuse due to 'lack of evidence'. Our grandmother and other vulnerable residents who were also photographed trusted those who cared for them and we as family also placed our trust in them. Caring for our most vulnerable living with Dementia and Alzheimers should be an honour. This again gives out a very clear message that our elderly are not protected by the law and a scandel that this is still allowed to happen with absolutely no consequence and our law makers do nothing. Our grandmother and other vulnerable residents suffered abused and treated with no dignity or respect. As a family the impact this will have on us will be long lasting and not even taken into consideration.''

CARE CAMPAIGN FOR THE VULNERABLE STATEMENT

Yet again we have another example of the wilful abuse of an elderly vulnerable lady and yet again no criminal charges will be brought because of a ‘lack of evidence’. Care Campaign for the Vulnerable has been campaigning for years for the introduction of mandatory safety monitoring to ensure situations such as this are detected and that the perpetrators are brought to justice because evidence was available to enable a prosecution to proceed.


To those who continue to resist the use of such technologies, shame on you. Care Campaign for the Vulnerable have consistently presented pictures and photos of vulnerable people who have suffered the indignity of being the subject of an inappropriate laugh for staff or a shared social media joke. On many occasions these vulnerable people have ended up with serious injury and yet time and time again no one is generally held to account. It's a disgrace that society accepts this is fine for older people but not in childrens nurseries.


For those who hide behind ‘privacy’ have another good look at this image and ask yourself, was this ladies ‘privacy’ more important than having her dignity stripped away, her photo plastered on social media and sustaining an injury ?? Camera monitoring technology not only provides visual and audio record of what actually happened, but also acts as a deterrent for this ever happening in the first place.


Continuing to ignore the use of such on the grounds of some woolly privacy argument is to effectively be complicit in the abuse.

If you have an interest in this case study and would like to make contact with the family please forward on contact details to ccftv.cares@gmail.com we will forward on with permission.
