Dignity in Care Champions

Because we at Home Instead Senior Care in Darlington believe that being treated with dignity is a basic human right, not an optional extra, we have recently become champions of the Dignity in Care campaign.

The Dignity Challenge lays out the national expectations of what constitutes a service that respects dignity. It focuses on 10 different aspects of dignity – the things that matter most to people.

  1. Have a zero tolerance of all forms of abuse.
  2. Support people with the same respect you would want for yourself or a member of your family.
  3. Treat each person as an individual by offering a personalised service.
  4. Enable people to maintain the maximum possible level of independence, choice and control.
  5. Listen and support people to express their needs and wants.
  6. Respect people’s right to privacy.
  7. Ensure people feel able to complain without fear of retribution.
  8. Engage with family members and carers as care partners.
  9. Assist people to maintain confidence and a positive self-esteem.
  10. Act to alleviate people's loneliness and isolation.
