Care Campaign for the Vulnerable organised and hosted an Evictions in Care Roundtable on Friday 24th September 2021 held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Beaconsfield Buckinghamshire and joined by notable care industry professionals including Vic Rayner OBE, National Care Forum, CEO Andrew Geach, Shedfield Lodge Care Home in Southampton and Beaconsfield MP Joy Morrissey.

Families CCFTV support were also present to speak on their experiences of eviction when complaints were raised in a loved ones care and offered an emotional insight into when an eviction is served snd the debating effect it can have on an elderly vulnerable person. CCFTV and families we support want to see better tenancy rights in care as well as an independent body to review every eviction served to an elderly person in a care home.

Joy Morrissey MP told attendees “ I support the work CCFTV are doing and more must be done to better protect our most vulnerable in care. I’d like to thank CCFTV for the vital support they offer families and their elderly relatives affected by many issues in care including "revenge" evictions.''

Shedfield Lodge CEO Andrew Geach said ''As a care home provider we have taken elderly from care homes that had been served notice because it was told the resident had ''challenging behaviour''. We must question is the action taken acceptable when elderly that are being evicted are in fact living in dementia specialist care homes in many cases. Therefore should we question the quality of dementia training offered to staff.''

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable would like to thank all our attendees including our families that joined us today and for giving an insight into why we need better protection and rights for our elderly living in care homes

Jane Freeman spoke passionately on the concerns she raised in her father's care that she said led to eviction and told attendees she only wanted to ensure her father's good care and safety and in meetings held this was eventually recognised by the local authority that pledged to do more to support families in care when a loved one is served notice. Jane said ''`There was no support for our family or my father with dementia. The experience was life-changing and as a family, we all suffered. CCFTV supported us in meetings and we wouldn't have known what to do without their support. It shouldn't be this way. It left a lasting effect and we don't want any families to suffer as we did.''
