Right at Home are proud to be supporting Dignity Action Day 2017 on February 1st, a day ensuring people who use care services are treated with dignity, and are given choice, independence and control in their daily lives.
As a National home care provider, we fully understand the importance of delivering high-quality care services whether this is for a person living with dementia or a person needing support and companionship. Our clients are always treated as individuals and receive high-quality person-centred care enabling them to live the lives they choose.
Dame Joan Bakewell, Dignity in Care Ambassador said:
“Dignity Action Day highlights a more respectful way of behaving towards vulnerable people. The very old and the very young clearly need our respect, but it wouldn’t do any harm to spread the dignity message across the population then we can all benefit.”
Dignity Champions are willing to:
- Stand up and challenge disrespectful behavior
- Act as good role models by treating other people with respect, particularly those who are less able to stand up for themselves
- Speak up about dignity to improve the way that services are organised and delivered
- Influence and inform colleagues
- Listen to and understand the views and experiences of citizens.
How do you sign up to be a Dignity Champion?
The Dignity in Care campaign is led by the National Dignity Council, who work together to raise the profile of the network and to place greater emphasis on promoting the work the Dignity Champions do to improve standards of care for people who use services.
To raise awareness on Dignity Action Day our teams will be sharing the 10 Dignity Do’s on Social Media and sharing in our local communities.
If you would like support in becoming a Dignity Champion or would like to know more about the services, we offer please contact your local office.
