Home Instead Care Manager Teri Wines, marked the day by becoming a ‘Dignity Champion’ for the second year running, joining the growing army of ‘Dignity Champions’ across the country who believe that being treated with dignity is a basic human right, not an optional extra.

The coffee morning was held at Home Instead’s offices at Ransomes Europark where business owner and organiser Chris Lye commented:
“This is the second year that we have supported Dignity Action Day because we believe that care services must be person centered; people must be treated as individuals and provided with the high quality care they deserve. It was lovely to see so many people enjoying a get together and I was delighted to invite our clients along to our home for a change, as we usually visit them in theirs.”
