Signature Senior Lifestyle sponsors Care Campaign for the Vulnerable
Signature Senior Lifestyle has announced a new formal partnership with Care Campaign for the Vulnerable (CCFTV).
The leading luxury care provider will sponsor CCFTV, which is spearheaded by founder Jayne Connery, for a year from this month, joining other sponsors, including Slater and Gordon UK, Winncare and Care Protect.
The new partnership builds on a six-month joint project which has seen CCFTV and Signature work together to pilot safety monitoring technology in dementia residents’ bedrooms at Signature at Reigate Grange.
Kay Cox, chief executive at Signature Senior Lifestyle, said: “Safety monitoring technology is an invaluable tool to support the development of caring and safe environments. Jayne’s campaign has helped us to develop a tailored safety monitoring pilot programme which has received overwhelmingly positive feedback from those living and working in the home. The safety monitoring technology has been game changing in our ability to provide truly personalised care and employee coaching.
“We are proud to support Jayne’s campaign to make it mandatory that all care homes offer their residents the option to use safety monitoring technology, and we will be working with her to drive the campaign forward. We are also working to expand our safety monitoring pilot to encompass our other homes as we stive to provide exceptional care alongside an exceptional lifestyle offering.”
Jayne Connery, founder of Care Campaign for the Vulnerable, said: “Care Campaign for the Vulnerable is delighted to be working in partnership with Signature Care Homes. After a successful collaboration with CCFTV on the piloting of independently monitored cameras in the dementia community at Signature at Reigate Grange, we see this provider has ‘walked the walk’ in committing to keeping vulnerable residents safe by adopting safety monitoring.
“CCFTV is therefore proud to be associated with and working in partnership with Signature Senior Lifestyle and we hope more care providers recognise the need for greater transparency in care homes and will follow their exemplary lead.”
Lynn Buckingham, relative of a resident at Reigate Grange, said: “The team at Reigate Grange are so passionate about the work they do and bring so much joy to the residents in the home. Knowing that my mother is now being supported by safety monitoring technology really reassured me that everything possible is being done to promote their safety, dignity and wellbeing. It’s just a little bit of extra reassurance and peace of mind that builds on top of the wonderful care that is already being provided. I would encourage more care homes to follow Signature’s example and explore the use of safety monitoring, and I’m so pleased that Signature is working to give more families the choice to access these services.”
