The Importance of Elderly Monitoring Devices
In April 2012, BBC Panorama went undercover in a bid to reveal the shocking treatment of elderly residents in care homes around the UK. The documentary was sparked by a concerned relative using a hidden camera to record the suspected abuse of an elderly relative by carers in the facility.
The report highlighted several cases which identified negligence, rough handling, verbal abuse, slapping and hitting of elder care home residents. In addition, it transpired that some care home staff were falsifying care records, and even stealing money from the residents.
The release of the documentary led to a number of care staff being sacked or suspended. By uncovering these shocking and saddening events, many people – managers, organisations and concerned family members – were urged to take further action.
Elderly monitoring by using spy gadgets
Five years on from the Panorama documentary, and there are still dozens of cases of elderly abuse being recorded each year – this is causing many to take greater measures of prevention.
With over 500,000 older people reported to have been abused in the UK per annum, it’s no wonder care home operatives are installing more CCTV cameras and security equipment. In addition, many people are frequently turning to vigilante methods such as spy cameras and hidden devices to garner the evidence needed to prevent these appalling acts.
The implementation of CCTV camera systems and the use of hidden devices to record elderly care home residents has become a common method of checking how staff are treating senior people. The managers and directors of many shared residential homes are in fact giving people the green light to put care home staff under secret surveillance if they fear that their elderly relatives are being abused or mistreated.
