Dementia Action Week - CCFTV continues our call for positive change

20th May 2022

It has been a very busy last 12 months for our team as we have experienced absolutely no letup in the number of families and vulnerable residents seeking advocacy and representation. For those who follow our social media activity, you will sadly know that on very many occasions over the past year, we have published torrid examples of resident/patient injury, family distress and stories of the premature passing of loved ones etc, that have, for the most part, remained unexplained.

As a result, many family members have continued to suffer significant trauma and distress as they seek to come to terms with the circumstances of not knowing how those untoward events occurred.

It is regrettable that for the last five years - despite our calling for much greater transparency and scrutiny by adopting safety monitoring systems - the management of dementia care services by providers has carried on as it always has since time immemorial. Whilst the world around us has continued to evolve and change at a very fast pace, adopting technologies and employment practices fit for the 21st century, the Care Sector continues to plod on without the radical change it needs. That has resulted in no material consistent improvement in services for vulnerable people living in institutional environments. Care Providers and Regulators continue to operate as they always have done essentially rejecting safety monitoring by omission and resistance.

It would therefore be our hope that in 2022 and strengthening our call on Dementia Action Week, the welfare of vulnerable residents may mean enough to the Government, service commissioners, regulators and even Care, Providers, themselves that they will acknowledge safety monitoring has a huge part to play not only in the safeguarding of vulnerable people but also to restore trust and confidence in a sector that actually has a reputation for ranking resident welfare behind profit-taking.

CCFTV will be at the UK CARE WEEK event, NEC Birmingham, on the 6th of July and speaking on the need for greater transparency in all care homes, www.ukcareweek.com
