Discussing care and the way families are affected emotionally when a loved one is diagnosed with dementia
Care Campaign for the Vulnerable will be hosting a informal get together discussing #Families Matter, inviting care professionals and family members /carers who have loved ones in care homes. This will bring a unique opportunity to discuss worries many relatives face when in the care sector. Founder of Care Campaign Jayne Connery said ‘ Our first meeting last month was such a huge success that I wanted to host another one. We all sat round a table and discussed care and the many problems and worries facing families in the sector. People really opened up and told me it really helped to talk in a informal and nuetral environment. Care professionals who attended received a insight to families affected by loved ones in care and relatives learned about professionals and their role. Families do matter in care and many need to talk about their anxieties and worries and this setting is ideal giving both families and care professionals the platform to do so’’.
The meeting will be held at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Gerrards Cross Buckinghamshire on Wednesday 23rd May at 1030am until 1230pm with complimentary coffee and snacks. There is limited space so if you would like to attend, please e mail Jayne Connery at email@example.com.
British Actress Aimi Macdonald is Care Campaign for the Vulnerable Ambassador - raising public awareness for better, safer, transparent care within the care sector.
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
Adventure with Dementia provide values-based learning, development and improvement programmes which include life elements relevant to us all irrespective of a diagnosis of disease or disability.
