Dignity in care
Maintaining dignity is an important part of care delivery, and something we see as fundamental to how we work with our residents day-to-day.
Christine Carlton from Nursing Care is our Dignity Champion. She represents us at the local Dignity in Care forum, acting as the link between Blind Veterans UK and other local organisations. The purpose of the forum is to communicate issues around dignity and share ideas about best practice.
The Dignity in Care campaign was launched in 2009 to highlight the issue nationally, and create a care system which doesn't tolerate abuse or disrespect. The government leads the campaign in partnership with organisations that provide and commission care, to protect the interests of people who use care services.
