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

I am the former President of the Rotary, Gerrard's Cross and Chalfont St Peter. I am a big supporter of Care Campaign for the Vulnerable. I know the hard work, effort and dedication that is put in by CCFTV to help vulnerable elderly live and be cared for more safely and transparently in care.
Through sheer hard work and constant vision, CCFTV has become recognised in national media as well as gaining leading recognition with the general public and notable care industry leaders/professionals. CCFTV is dedicated to raising awareness to elderly social care issues and helping support familes and care workers that go to them with care concerns. I am very proud to be the Patron of such a important initiative.
My name is Andrew and with my wife Carole we are the very proud owners of a Residential Care Home in Hampshire and have been for just under 20 years. After serving in the Royal Navy as a Paramedic, I also served as a Police Officer for 10 years with Hampshire Constabulary. Carole also has over 20 years of experience within the care industry including being the Registered Manager of our care home for a few years.
We work with our outstanding team, our core values are to be open, honest and transparent and to provide a social environment that supports the requirements of each individual living here, enabling them to be the person they want to be, maintaining dignity, stimulating minds and giving a sense of purpose. Everyone living in our care home is valued and supported to live a full a life as possible, while maintaining and regaining independence, where possible. We understand the uniqueness of every individual and by understanding the world from the prospective of the person experiencing a Dementia, we are able to offer specialist care, centred around each individual ensuring inclusion, respect and choice.
We have been involved with Care Campaign for The Vulnerable since 2018. I first met Jayne at a Round Table event, hosted by the Hampshire Care Association and it was established that we had been using Safety Monitoring since 2012 and were strong advocates of their use in all care settings. Subsequently Jayne visited our home to meet our team and to see how Safety Monitoring was such an invaluable care tool in our home. We have gone on to forge a strong relationship that has seen us become part of CCFTV’s Advisory Team and to have the privilege of being the Ambassador Care Home for Care Campaign for the Vulnerable
I have been working in the care industry since 2011. My journey began with my own mother, watching the incredible way she cared for my grandmother. She always put my grandmother’s needs before her own, ignoring the tell-tale aches and pains which eventually led to a heart attack. We sadly lost my mother and, largely thanks to the care she had received my grandmother lived for many years. am passionate about supporting people to find the right solution for their loved one’s care needs.
In my role I support home managers to ensure we are providing the highest quality care in our residential and nursing homes, enriching our residents’ lives. I am deeply honoured to be on the committee raising awareness through Care Campaign For The Vulnerable, because looking after our elderly is very close to my heart.
I am a dementia specialist/adviser/trainer/lecturer. I feel passionately that we should be providing dementia training of the highest standard to carers, nurses and family members. It is paramount if we are to give people living with dementia first class care.
Everyone deserves to be treated with respect dignity and compassion. That’s why I fully support the work Care Campaign for the Vulnerable do and I am proud to help raise awareness for better and safer elderly care.
I am the founder of community fundraising group. I proudly represent families with loved ones in care, as part of the Care Campaign for the Vulnerable Committee. After an eclectic career in sales & marketing management. I was searching for a cause which was related to dementia & elder care for us to support when I came across the Care Campaign for the Vulnerable in 2016. Upon reading the story of how & why Jayne created CCFTV, I knew I wanted to get more involved.
My late mother lived with dementia & sadly, through a number of care settings suffered serious failings in her supported living as well as unexplained injuries & preventable neglect. After meetings, moves & unresolved issues, these experiences led me to question the relationship between the care industry, the resident & the families involved. I feel passionately that families need to be heard, understood & included by care providers, in all aspects of care decisions, where possible. I believe in bringing transparency, awareness & dialogue around elderly social care issues, from the family perspective.
