The shocking and despicable incident of a care worker taunting and psychologically abusing a dementia resident in his care home in Lincolnshire has outraged Care Campaign and our supporters https://www.lincolnshirelive.co.uk/news/lincoln-news/care-home-worker-videos-herself-2452643
Founder of Care Campaign For The Vulnerable Jayne Connery visits many care homes up and down the country working hard to implement good care standards. She said ‘’In a Industry where pay is low and the status of being a care worker is not always a positive one I see many great carers look beyond this and do a job they love doing. However , we as a society must look at this shocking and sickening case and say ‘enough is enough”.
“ This care worker thought it amusing to film herself goading and psychologically bullying a man who lives with dementia. A man who I’m sure , everyone who looked at the sickening video , wanted to immediately wrap your arms around him and protect thinking what if he was OUR family member. This includes many of our great carers who have contacted Care Campaign feeling shame at this woman’s actions.
We must now start supporting safety monitoring in care homes which would deter such cruel and sickening behaviour. The frightening thing about this video was if it hadn’t had been exposed she would probably have carried on with this cruel behaviour to that elderly man and many more like him.
We need a better independent reporting system where carers can report colleagues without fear of reprisals or bullying. We need to bring transparency into a sector that cares for those who have no voice’’.
Care Campaign urges care homes across the whole of the U.K. sector to start embracing safety monitoring - not just the few providers out there who are placing the protection and safeguarding of residents and staff at the top of their agenda...this should now be the ethos of EVERY care provider and NOT the minority. We need the public to support it

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
