Jayne Connery is a former news agency reporter and Promotion Executive from Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire. She started to advocate safety monitoring in dementia care homes six years ago, combining this with setting up a Family Support Group for those affected by dementia and is an advocate for families and carers who contact us needing support.
Her personal experience in the care sector ended in January 2016. Five years witnessing (in communal areas ) falls, including not being attended to in a acceptable waiting time, inappropriate manual handling, lack of 'specific dementia' training, unacceptable ratio of care staff for vulnerable residents as well as carers not supported by immediate senior managers. This became the focus behind the tireless promoting of safety monitoring in communal areas, exits and entrances in ALL dementia care and nursing homes, attracting many tens of thousands of supporters, including care staff, businesses and care sector industry professionals.
Jayne divides her time by being a Care-Partner, raising awareness on the work of CARE CAMPAIGN for the VULNERABLE - this includes being invited into care homes and contacted by families who need support when a loved one is placed in care. Care Campaign... is asked to attend seminars /conferences to talk about the importance of safety in care in both care homes and hospitals for those living wth dementia - fundraiser for Dementia Charities as well as a Rotarian, raising dementia awareness, at her local Gerrards Cross /Chalfont St Peter Rotary Club.

There are 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with numbers set to rise to over 1 million by 2025. This will soar to 2 million by 2051. 225,000 will develop dementia this year, that's one every three minutes. 1 in 6 people over the age of 80 have dementia. New figures released by the Office of National Statistics show that for the first time, Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias are the leading cause of death for England and Wales. Of the 529,655 deaths registered during 2015, dementia accounted for 61,686 (11.6%).
When working in a care home Kelly Campbell saw the need for a 'dignity cover' after witnessing residents privacy being compromised when hoisted from one area to another. CCTV Care Campaign for the Vulnerable 100 per cent advocate the Dignity Cover and urge all service users to consider using this product as part of their daily care routine when residents /patients are having to use a hoist. We believe dignity matters - at all times.Visit the Waymayka website
