Colchester Borough Homes celebrates Dignity Action Day
Residents and staff at The Cannons extra care sheltered housing came together to celebrate Dignity Action Day, last week (1 February).
The annual event provides an opportunity for health and social care workers to honour and uphold people’s rights to dignity and provide a memorable day for people receiving care, whilst also inspiring others to take positive steps to promote dignity.
Residents and AgeinCare staff at the Colchester Borough Homes (CBH) accommodation wore red – the campaign’s official colour – and enjoyed a special afternoon tea, raising £31 for the National Dignity Council.
Colchester Borough Homes’ Chief Executive, Philip Sullivan, said: “These last two years have shown us just how incredibly important it is to treat everyone with dignity and compassion. CBH is passionate about ensuring people who use care services are treated as individuals and are given choice, control and a sense of purpose in their daily lives.
“I’m delighted that we’ve been able to celebrate the Dignity Action Day and to raise money for charity.”
