On the 1st of February Karen Garner, Registered Care Manager for Home Instead Senior Care (Altrincham), took part in an extra special day, part hosted by Trafford Council.

Its aim was to raise the importance of dignity in care.

Dignity Action Day asks health and social care workers to take action in their place of work to promote dignity. It also asks members of the public to do what they can to take action on this day to promote dignity for people in their own communities.

Karen said “ Dignity is about more than one day and should be upheld at all times but dignity action day gives people a more focused opportunity to promote it to others, demonstrate how they uphold dignity so others can share ideas and also give people in care an extra special day. ”

Other attendees included representatives from Greater Manchester Police Force, The Fire Service, Trafford Council's Personal Budgets team, Disabled Holidays, Age UK and the children of St Matthews School.
