SUCCESSFUL CARE HOME CAMPAIGN LAUNCHES NEW ADVOCACY SERVICE
Jayne Connery, Founder of Care Campaign for the Vulnerable and high profile dementia champion, is celebrating as her successful social media campaign has led her to set up a free Advocacy Service for families and carers affected by poor care.
CCAS (Care Campaign Advocacy Service will be expanded to offer a support network for families and carers who have been affected by inadequate care. It will help to provide guidance and support to those who need it, as well as the volunteer advocates being available to speak up on the behalf of the families.
The former News Agency reporter launched Care Campaign for the Vulnerable (CCTV) more than five years ago, following her mother’s experiences in the care sector. The campaign now has more than 55,000 supporters on social media, with many sharing their own experiences of family members’ inadequate care.
It is due to the overwhelming support on social media that Care Campaign for the Vulnerable is now branching out into a Advocacy Service.
Jayne Connery said: “I have been independently doing advocacy work for two years now and because of the sheer volume of clients, I have decided to start the Care Campaign Advocacy Service (CCAS). I have recruited volunteer advocates who have all had an involvement in the care sector and will offer a free service which gives emotional support to those who need it, as well as accompanying families to official meetings.
“I am delighted that, because of the overwhelming and unwavering public support to safety monitoring and our relentless championing for it to be made mandatory in all communal areas of dementia care and nursing homes, we are now able to offer a free support service to families and carers effected by inadequate care. All of our advocates have first-hand experience of care homes and will be on hand to offer invaluable support in person or over the telephone.”
Jayne added: “We hope to gain more Business sponsorship this year and we look forward to carrying on our vital work helping to support many families and carers who may be affected by inadequate care.”
