Care Campaign for the Vulnerable invited into HCONE to talk to staff and families on the benefits adopting safety monitoring in care

25th April 2019

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable was invited to attend a HCONE family and staff meeting to discuss the benefits for the use of safety monitoring in communal areas in care homes. Many thought provoking questions were asked and one particular question from a carer, resonated the most. The young lady said “I love to have a banter with my residents. I’m worried cameras may prohibit me from doing this?”

Loved ones receiving care, families tell us nothing makes them more happy when carers treat resident's,, especailly living with dementia as a person they are and not someone with a cognitive impairment. If a carer’s conversation, words or actions are meaningful or even silly- it’s irrelevant. Engaging with residents in any way possible, is a crucial part of caring. Safety monitoring is not there to 'spy’ 'catch carers out’ or 'inhibit' their daily routine with residents - we live with cameras every day and inevitably forget about them. Safety monitoring will allow carers to do the job they love with vulnerable people, in a more safe, open and transparent environment and importantly bring peace of mind only safety monitoring can bring.

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable would like to sincerely thank HCONE for the opportunity to talk to staff and families and we are very pleased to report those present voted overwhelmingly for the use of safety monitloring in communal areas. We will therefore follow the home's progress in the coming months.

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
