DAILY EXPRESS 26th November 2018
Jayne Connery Founder of Care Campaign for the Vulnerable was asked to comment on the recent reports in the Daily Express newspaper regarding one in four care homes failing to meet acceptable standards. Families/elderly are forking out thousands of pounds to receive good care but inspectors found in many of these' failing' care homes, vulnerable elderly were being failed.

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable Public Statement
Care Campaign For The Vulnerable is extremely disappointed that the CQC published monthly inspection findings confirm that some 38% of homes inspected languish in the ‘requires improvement' or ‘inadequate’ categories. Whilst some claims have been made that inspection outcomes are slowly improving, that is of cold comfort to the residents living in the 41 inadequate care homes. A read of some of those reports worrryingly confirm that poor care is a daily offering for many of the people living in those homes and frankly that is just not good enough. We remain concerned that given CQC inspections are infrequent as a consequence of limited resources, the likelihood is that many other issues potentially exist in those care homes that is not witnessed on the day of inspection.
That is why Care Campaign for the Vulnerable will continue to call for camera safety monitoring in all homes in an effort to ensure all vulnerable people receive a consistent level of high quality care.

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
