Care Campaign for the Vulnerable champions overt camera use in care homes - BBC RADIO KENT..

1st April 2019

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable founder Jayne Connery was on BBC radio Kent this morning with the National Care Association talking safety monitoring in care homes.

Care Campaign’s stance on safety monitoring is very much for overt cameras in communal areas and private rooms with consent - where many preventable and unpreventable incidents and accidents can occur and serious injuries suffered by vulnerable residents. While we respect some commentators who support covert cameras in care , Care Campaign sees this as a negative approach for better transparency and trust in care homes.

We know from families and carers who contact us if a hidden camera is used then trust can break down between provider and families - many resulting in notice to vacate the home. While we would never condemn any family who felt the need to place a hidden camera to highlight neglect or abuse - we want to deter this abuse from happening in the first place and with hidden cameras the abuse would have already taken place - we want to see a more open and honest approach where safety monitoring is not to be feared or to have negative connotations. Overt safety monitoring is far more acceptable and can bring in a more transparent, open care culture. We also want to promote the benefits to the conscientious led care provider too, showing how safety monitoring can offer positives commercially and save valuable resources within not just the care home but also the NHS.

Hear the conversation on BBC RADIO KENT and Care Campaign for the Vulnerable Jayne Connery passionately talking about the need for safety monitoring in all care homes for both vulnerable residents and dedicated care staff - working with the care sector NOT against - ensuring trust between provider , service user and families is maintained. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p073j5gd

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
