‘Dignity & cakes’ was the order of the day for our residents and staff here at Riversway as we celebrated Dignity Action Day.
The national event, led by the National Dignity Council, is designed to showcase a ‘respectful way of behaving towards vulnerable people;’ and during Dignity Action Day, those in the health and care professions are asked to promote dignity in their place of work.
At Riversway, residents and carers were asked what dignity meant to them, and then their answers were written on colourful paper leaves, flowers and butterflies to hang from their ‘digni-tree’ – a decoration that really catches the eye of visitors to our home.
A group of residents also helped to decorate cakes for a special ‘digni-tea party’ which were enjoyed by all.
Dignity in care is an important part of what we do at Riversway, and the day really gave us all a chance to show off why it is so vital.
One of our residents told us she thought it was a great idea, and a very important subject for people to express their views about.
