SEVENTY PER CENT of inquiries into safeguarding concerns about adults identified risk and were acted on says a report out today - READ HERE - - https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/inquiries-into-abuse-and-neglect-of-adults-leap-by-half-at-care-homes-njzc6sh5wCare Campaign for the Vulnerable is not at all surprised by this and comments in The Sunday Times on a loving daughter who contacted CCFTV at the beginning of the year saying her family sold their home to pay their late father’s care that fell way short resulting in all her concerns of neglect substantiated, but only after a re-investigation was held. CCFTV are supporting hundreds of families that contact our organisation reporting neglect to vulnerable elderly loved ones happening in care homes.

Kate Terroni, the CQC’s chief inspector of adult social care, said “The watchdog had consistently called for long-term funding of social care to address huge challenges which pre-date the pandemic.

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable's year on year data confirms that safeguarding incidence is increasing rapidly. Whilst accepting that we work with relatively small numbers of cases in absolute terms, it is nevertheless true to say that we have seen a 40% increase in our participation with families during safeguarding processes. We do not believe that those are isolated events and therefore cannot accept CQC’s assertions that the vast majority of homes provide an acceptable service.

CCFTV simply isn’t confident at all that CQC have the necessary oversight and continuous supervision that many homes require. It's impossible to believe that anything other than safety monitoring can ever provide the 24/7 visual record of care delivery that families crave. They simply want reassurance and evidence that a loved one is adequately cared for. It is not at all an unreasonable demand.

Alas CQC choose to carry on with the same old historical approach that has not eradicated abuse, nor has it reduced the incidence of neglect or even improved a lot of vulnerable older people living in care environments. We had believed driving up standards, providing complete transparency in care homes and eradicating many of these concerns was actually their 'raison d'etre’. It would seem not.
