Care Campaign for the Vulnerable is learning of the pressures faced by conscientious led Care Providers striving to offer a caring and safe environment to both service users and staff. Safety monitoring is proving to be a invaluable care assist tool - bringing a more open and transparent culture into care homes as well as saving valuable resources within the care home sector and the NHS
Care Campaign For The Vulnerable has been asked to comment on Labour MP Rosena Allin-Khan's calling for CCTV in care homes after finding her father who has dementia ‘bleeding’ in his care home. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/family/life/mp-discovered-father-bruised-bleeding-terrified-care-speaking/
Care Campaign for the Vulnerable is very saddened to hear Dr Rosena Allin Khan was faced with witnessing her father suffer unexplained injuries in his care home. This is all too often the experience many families contact us with. CCFTV is calling for better transparency in all care and nursing homes and not just for the benefit of vulnerable residents and their families but good, dedicated care staff too. Thankfully CCFTV visiting and talking to care providers regarding safety monitoring in care homes it's becoming more evident that providers are seeing the benefits safety monitoring will bring in as a helpful care assist tool good and to maintain a safe, transparent caring culture and to highlight the not so good care practice that can sometimes happen when taking care of vulnerable elderly.
We hope Dr Rosena Allin Khan MP can rally more support in Parliament and place pressure on her colleagues to understand the positives safety monitoring can bring into all care homes. Care Campaign for the Vulnerable Founder Jayne Connery met with Sadiq Khan over two years ago at a newspaper awards evening asking him the question would he support support safety monitoring in communal areas in all care homes to help bring in better transparency in the care of our elderly. Mr Khan replied in writing to us and disappointed he confirmed that he ''couldn't support this cause at this time''
