Martin Green CEO Care England – agrees to encourage Care Homes to acknowledge Essential Care Givers on their websites

Jul 28, 2021 | News

Yesterday 28th July 2021myself, Kate Meacock and Penny Hutchinson met with Martin Green CEO of Care England, who represents the larger care providers such as Barchester, HC1 and Care UK to name but a few. After Kate pointed out that many Care England members were failing to update their visiting policies on their websites, Martin agreed to encourage them to do so and to include Essential Care Giver in their policy as outlined in the guidance.
We were delighted to hear that Care UK and HC1 have now updated their website offering ECG as an option and hope many more will follow suit!
We will not stop lobbying and continue to fight for the rights of those in care who don’t have a voice.

Help us end isolation for care home residentsSupport “Gloria’s Law”

As the Ambassador for Rights for Residents, West End performer Ruthie Henshall is campaigning for “Gloria’s Law”, in memory of her mother who passed away this year, after witnessing her decline from the other side of a care home window.

If passed this would ensure every resident has the legally enforced right to the support of an essential visitor, who could support them in all circumstances.
