'Dignity Champion', Julie Hayes, at Aaron Court care home, in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, delivered a Dignity in Care session for the home to raise awareness of the importance of dignity in a care setting.
Dignity in Action Day, on 1 February, is an annual opportunity for health and social care workers, and members of the public to raise awareness of the importance of Dignity in Care and demonstrate that everybody in the community has a role to play in upholding Dignity in Care.
Activities Coordinator, and Dignity Champion, Julie Hayes, believes passionately that being treated with dignity is a basic human right, regardless of age, sex or race. To honour the day, Julie organised and ran a Dignity in Care session for the homes’ residents, family members and nurses.
Proud to support Dignity in Action Day #DAD2018 at Aaron Court care home.
The session covered understanding what Dignity means, that it must be at the centre of everything to achieve high quality, person-centred care and support. She discussed the attitudes, skills and knowledge required to provide the best care possible with this in mind. Julie also played this video, from the Royal College of Nursing,‘How Would you Feel’.
Registered General Nurse, Cath Painter, said, “I really enjoyed the session. We had a quiz and discussion about Equality and Human Rights, and how we could better promote dignity at Aaron Court.”
