Jayne Connery Founder of Care Campaign for the Vulnerable was asked to comment on reports councils are failing people in care homes (Daily Express Monday 28th January 2019)
Care Campaign for the Vulnerable supports families who tell us due to lack of Government funds and inadquate care delivery towards their loved ones - they are forced to consider taking loved ones back home to be care for. Jayne said ' I speak to many families who are at their wits end. Many tell me that they are practically living at the care home to offer support and personal care because the care home is vastly understaffed especially at night. One daughter said she spent more time in the home with her mother than she did in her own job. Worried about the lack of support her mum, with late stage dementia receives, she says the blame isn't on the care staff. The daughter told Care Campaign for the Vulnerable ' I now am considering taking my mum home and fund her if i can privately to start with.
CHC funding is stressful and I am eager to get my mum home as her health is deteriorating. This is her third care home and the care has started off ok but within months Managers left, problems recruiting care staff and quite frankly its all got too much with a negative effect on many vulnerable residents including my Mum, I looked after her before she went in to a care home and it was more manageable than it seems to be now. The councils are not paying enough into these homes and the only people suffering are the residents and their families. The Government has got to start acting.''
"The evidence from Providers who have installed CCTV seems to me to merit careful attention and to be quite persuasive"

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
