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
Robert Myers head of Care Pathways at Marbrook Centre that specialises in neurological, dementia and stroke care, advocates safety monitoring in communal areas. CCFTV was delighted to visit staff and residents at Marbrook three years ago. Robert has now extended the invitation for CCFTV to visit their new build Oakham Grange Residential home with nursing( the first of a sister brand to Marbrook Ardale) that also has installed safety monitoring in communal areas.
''The experiences we've had with the use of safety monitoring at The Marbrook Centre has been so positive we have now installed it in the new build at Oakham Grange Care Home" Robert Myers Head Of Care Pathways Marbrook Centre
''We are thrilled to invite Care Campaign for the Vulnerable to Oakham Grange, our brand new, bespoke Residential home with Nursing in Rutland. One of the first things on its design specification was CCTV within all the common areas in the home. This isn’t new technology for us as a family-run provider, as we have seen the positive results of investing in CCTV over the last four years. Although CCTV can be viewed as a safeguarding tool, for us as a care provider, it is its ability to enable staff to benefit from reflective learning that is most valuable. With the proper safeguards in place, CCTV is a must and will be a standard feature in all our future Ardale homes."
Robert Myers, Head of Care Pathways, Marbrook.
"The evidence from Providers who have installed CCTV seems to me to merit careful attention and to be quite persuasive"
