 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

Covid-19 is creating unique issues for those involved in our care homes, residents and their loved ones are being distanced and prevented from close human contact. Understand your rights - click the button below to view the report written by Author Jeremy Cama

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable working with the care sector to raise awareness on the preventable/non preventable incidents/accidents that can happen in care homes.

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable leading the call for a Public Inquiry to consider the handling of care settings during the Covid pandemic

We believe the Public Inquiry should consider the handling of Covid within the care home setting and examine :

The decision to discharge Covid positive patients from hospitals into care homes – during the first and second wave of the pandemic.
A lack of adequate PPE given to care home staff who were treated as secondary to nurses and hospital staff despite the policy to send positive patients into care homes to be cared for.
The steps taken by the Government to ensure safety monitoring of care homes during the pandemic so that there was no drop in the standard of care given at a time when care homes were closed.
Visitor policies – what did care homes do to maintain contact between residents and visitors, and how was the opening up of care homes to relatives handled?
The pandemic’s secondary victims – EG failure to treat/ diagnose other illnesses, and abuse and neglect that has occurred because safety monitoring has been bypassed.

WHY CARE CAMPAIGN FOR THE VULNERABLE?

Care Campaign For The Vulnerable is a leading independent, not for profit, safety in elderly care national organisation set up to influence the care sector to practice a more transparent and safer caring environment by adopting safety monitoring in communal areas in all care and nursing homes in the U.K. Negative care experiences did not dissuade our founder from witnessing great care and some very special care professionals but saw an urgent need for better transparency and protection of vulnerable residents and their care workers. Our team of voluntary professionals include a Care Provider CEO, Dementia Trainer, former NHS nurse as well as three leading senior care professionals with extensive knowledge and service in the care sector and a family in care representative. Personal and professional experience allow us to work together with families and care workers that contact us with reporting care concerns. We are proud to offer families and care workers a voice, working with providers and notable care industry professionals to promote a more open and transparent culture in the care of our most vulnerable elderly and their dedicated care workers. CCFTV is a responsible organisation and our priority and focus is the safety and good care for our elderly.

CCFTV is invited by care providers to talk to staff and families about the benefits safety monitoring can bring into all caring environments. Care Campaign for the Vulnerable is the only UK safety monitoring in care homes initiative working with the care sector and supporting families who come to us with care concerns. We work with safeguarding teams, commissioning groups and social workers to achieve correct and rightful outcomes for families and care workers that contact us after exhausting all other ways for help. We have supported/assisted families to negotiate fair and a more transparent approach to a loved ones care delivery, negotiated with providers to extend time on notice served as well as highlighting 'unfair' notices to quit care homes, influenced serious case reviews while standing beside families to ensure an open and transparent investigation outcome when dealing with serious care concerns. In 2019 we worked with Croydon University Hospital on the Trust's Dementia Strategy Report for better care and understanding on admittance and ward stays for elderly patients living with dementia. CCFTV continue to gain support from care providers, care workers and tens of thousands of supporters. We understand the pressures and sometimes unrealistic expectations placed on many care staff and so allowing us a balanced understanding of safety monitoring being a positive care assist tool for everyone who lives and work in a caring environment.

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable promotes good, safe person-centred care and a better understanding and support for our vulnerable elderly especially those living with dementia. Working within the care sector we also raise awareness of the many commercial benefits safety monitoring can bring into a care business and proving to save valuable NHS and care home resources. Care Campaign for the Vulnerable has participated in the Care Quality Commission (CQC) Roundtable on Technology and we are regularly invited to speak at Dementia Care shows, events, exhibitions and invited to care/nursing homes. We are lead media commentators on elderly social care issues including 'unfair' notices to quit care homes, unwitnessed and unexplained injuries to our elderly in care homes, support whistleblowers and regularly asked to comment in the national media on this and other important elderly social care issues. MP Dominic Grieve took our safety monitoring in care initiative to Westminster Hall to be debated in 2018 and we continue to raise important awareness for better transparency and protection in the care of our most vulnerable elderly in care environments.
