CEO Andrew Geach Shedfield Lodge talks on the benefits safety monitoring brings to his care homes

8th June 2019

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable was delighted to talk over our safety monitoring in care homes initiative at the Alzheimer's show and called on stage CEO Andrew Geach who supports safety monitoring in communal areas already having this technology for over seven years installed in his own care home, Shedfield Lodge in Hampshire. Andrew spoke passionately of the overwhelming benefits safety monitoring brings to protect vulnerable residents but also his staff. He spoke passionately regarding unwitnessed falls that can happen when caring for elderly vulnerable people. He told of the many cases before safety monitoring was installed, unexpected falls would have had to involve a call to 999 and the resident making a trip to hospital to get checked over in case of a possible head injury. Andrew said since the safety monitoring installation, if any such unwitnessed fall should occur, management look over the footage and in many cases it has shown the resident has voluntary placed themselves laying on the floor which results in a no ambulance call out or unncessary and distressing trip to A and E. Andrew told the conference '' This is something that needs to be addressed, the money the NHS is saved by just our homes having safety monitoring alone is hugely significant - so could you image if it was rolled out across ALL care homes?. Our priority first and foremost is about safeguarding our most vulnerable and care staff. Safety monitoring can also ensure our carers are protected. Safety monitoring is a great training tool enabling carers to show where they may have gone wrong... or right!''

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
