John's Campaign

for the right to stay with people with dementia

for the right of people with dementia to be supported by their family carers

On Monday December 18th Helen Whately, Minister of State at the DHSC, laid an amendment to the 2008 Health and Care Act before Parliament. From April 2024 visiting will become a Fundamental Standard in care homes, hospitals and hospices. Read the amendment here.

Ambassadors

One of the inspiring features of this campaign has been the readiness of individual nurses, nursing directors, psychologists, patients experience managers and others to implement the principles of welcome in their own hospitals and then share their experience with others. Gillian McAuley was the first to suggest the title of Ambassador for people who believe that John's Campaign has enhanced the life of their hospital and who want to encourage others to do the same. There are many others without whom the campaign would never have moved beyond the stage of being a lovely idea. Some of them are listed below. This is not a closed shop: if you would like to be a John's Campaign Ambassador, please do get in touch.
