JAYNE CONNERY FOUNDER OF CARE CAMPAIGN FOR THE VULNERABLE INVITE TO OAKLANDS CARE HOME DISCUSSING SAFETY MONITORING IN CARE WITH CEO SAMIR PATEL
Care Campaign for the Vulnerable was delighted to be invited into Oaklands Care Home in Southampton today to discuss the many positives safety monitoring in care can bring - not just for residents and families but equally important Care Providers and staff. CEO Samir Patel welcomed Jayne Connery Founder of Care Campaign for the Vulnerable and they quickly got chatting about the reasons Jayne champions safety monitoring to become mandatory across the sector. Jayne said after the meeting ''The best part of what I do is actually talking and discussing the many challenges faced by care providers WITH Care Providers. I work with families affected by poor care, but through the work I do I am understanding more and more the many challenges faced by good conscientious Care Providers in the care industry. Our initiative on safety monitoring is to encourage them in discussing the positives safety monitoring has in the delivery of care and I am so proud of this. I'm eager to express to those who open their doors to Care Campaign for the Vulnerable the many reasons why adopting safety monitoring technology will help in their delivery of good, safer care. Accidents can happen - we are all human and care homes are no dfferent - bringing in transparency to how incidents preventable and non preventable occur is and should be accepted or more Care Providers will be faced with a backlash. Safety monitoring goes hand in hand with residents who are vulnerable in care homes. Care Providers can learn so much from monitoring the day to day running of a care faciltiy. Why wouldn't a Care Provider want this level of protection for their employees.?''
Care Campaign for the Vulnerable would like to thank CEO Samir Patel for inviting Jayne Connery into Oakland Care Home and we are thrilled to learn Mr Patel is now seriously considering adopting safety monitoring in communal areas across his care home.

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
