It's time for the care sector to start thinking 'technology' smart. Not just for the protection and safeguarding of our most vulnerable but for the professionals who value their reputation as good, conscientious led Care Providers. Our most vulnerable and their carers deserve no lessJayne Connery
Founder Care Campaign for the Vulnerable Jayne Connery meeting Dominic Grieve MP for the first time in February 2014, rallying support to her Safety Monitoring to be made mandatory in all public areas of all care homes appeal, supported by over 55,000 on line supporters.
Jayne Connery has been contacted by MP Dominic Grieve to attend a meeting Friday 11th May, ahead of the MP for Beaconsfield submitting a question on behalf of Care Campaign for the Vulnerable on the Government making mandatory safety monitoring in all public areas of care and nursing homes. Jayne said ahead of the meeting ‘ Care Campaign is totally committed to keep on championing safety monitoring to be made mandatory across the whole of the UK care sector. This needs to be discussed and put out in the public domain ‘. We have to start addressing what the public actually want with regards to safeguarding our Vulnerable. How much longer can the Government keep saying they agree with safety monitoring on a ‘case by case ‘ basis. It shouldn’t be about picking up abuse /neglect - but helping prevent it in the first place. ‘. I strongly feel the Governmnet are not considering the drain on the already struggling system with currently one in five care homes failing. The statistics are not good and it's not going to get any better with an aging population.''

I am delighted to be invited as a Ambassador to assist in this wonderful campaign instigated by Jayne Connery regarding CCTV security in care homes throughout the UK. This, I feel, will benefit carers, staff, residents and their families in the event of any dispute. As a relative of someone suffering with Alzheimers disease I have been involved with care homes over the last ten years and I feel the knowledge I have can contribute to this very important initiative
