Jayne Connery Director Care Campaign for the Vulnerable has been invited to speak at the Care Show held at the NEC Birmingham on 18th October 2018.
Care Campaign for the Vulnerable Founder/Director Jayne Connery is delighted to have been asked to give a talk at this year's Care Show at the NEC Birimingham with Care Campaign's newly appointed Amabassador Terry Eccott. Terry, who is also the Alzheimers Society Ambassador will be attending with Jayne to join her on stage to give a talk about the work they undertake raising awarenss to safety monitoring in public areas in dementia/carehomes to be made mandatory as well as our important work highlighing preventable neglect happening within the sector and offering support to families and family carers
Jayne said ''Every time we get invited to give a talk at these care industry events its a reminder of the huge opportunity that faces us to open up the sector needing transparency and help bring awareness to the important change needed. We are gaining much momentum and this year has seen us work so hard raising awareness to the very important work we do. The distressing calls and messages we receive from families and family carers is rising. Families tell us they want to be listened to - and importantly, to be heard. To feel they matter when decisions about their loved one in care is taken. I visit many care homes and home care agencies in my role at Care Campaign for the Vulnerable and I get to see how dedicated and professional many of our providers and carers are - but please lets not be blinded or naive about this - inadequate care staff are still being employed in this industry that really shouldn't be. I talk to carers who see their colleagues failing to carry out proper duty of care including verbal and physical abuse against those they are caring for and many are intimidated to speak out, explaining when they do, the perpretrators are soon reinstated in their role and understandably makes things very difficult. This is why Care Campaign is supporting the national Charity Action on Elder Abuse to make abuse carried out by those in a position of trust carry a far more serious consequence with the law. It has to start at the top and whilst it's so important for us to champion good care practices, its equally vital we raise wareness to what's going on in the opposite end of the spectrum. We owe it to those vulnerable elderly in care homes and in their own homes receiving care and for future generations, until a cure at least, is found.''

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. Our approach is that of doing 'with' people and not doing 'for' them thus creating family style daily living which is occupied, meaningful and fulfilled while also challenging the stereotypes of a carers role to empower them to do things differently: pledging to make a difference.Visit Website
