Jayne Connery Founder of Care Campaign for the Vulnerable meets with MP Dominic Grieve to discuss debating in Parliament making mandatory safety monitoring in all dementia/care and nursing homes for vulnerable residents and their carers.
11th MAY 2018
Care Campaign for the Vulnerable Founder Jayne Connery has once again met with Dominic Grieve MP to finalise details so the Beaconsfield member of Parliament can submit a question to debate the use of safety monitoring to be made mandatory in all dementia /care homes. Jayne Connery has spent the last eight months meeting with Mr Grieve and pushing for the next step in Care Campaign' s crusade to bring transparency into all dementia care /nursing homes for both vulnerble elderly and their carers. She said after the meeting with Mr Grieve MP ' I am relieved and very pleased Mr Grieve has agreed now is the time to push this forward and get this important debate discusssed in Parliament. I believe the change has to start at the top and the more it is discussed the more the public will get behind it. Care Campaign is supporting Action on Elder Abuse campaign for the horriofic abuse of our vulnerable elderly to be treated as a hate crime and put the punishment far more fitting and rid the paltry sentences many perpertrators receive after abusing an elderly person . This is everyones concern if you plan to grow old and one Care Campaign for the Vulnerable aswell as our loyal supporters are extremely passionate about''.
Care Campaign for the Vulnerable Parliamentary Question submitted to Dominic Grieve MP
Almost 400,000 elderly vulnerable people are living in care homes throught the UK. That fact, combined with the projected increasing demand for further beds as the incidence of dementia explodes over the next 30 years, surely warrents serious consideration for mandatory surveillane and independant daily monitoring systems in all long term care facilities?

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
