Dignity Action Day 2012
24 Jan 2012
Castlerock Recruitment Group is celebrating Dignity Action Day! This special day gives everyone the opportunity to contribute to supporting people's rights to dignity and to be part of a national celebration to raise awareness and demonstrate solidarity for Dignity in Care.
Taking place on 1st February 2012 Dignity Action Day aims to ensure people in care are given choice, treated as individuals and provides a truly memorable day for people receiving care.
Dignity Action Day asks health and social care workers to take action in their place of work to promote dignity.
In support of Dignity Action Day Care Supervisor Aimee Ashton has been busy working and creating Dignity Action packs for all Castlerock Recruitment Group’s Domiciliary care Staff.
The Dignity Action Pack consists of an awareness ribbon for carers to wear while providing care, leaflets and information regarding dignity and why it is so important to put dignity at the centre of care. A DVD created by North West councils promoting dignity is also included raising awareness by highlighting how undignified care makes service users feel.
Aimee believes that this is only the start of how Castlerock Recruitment Group is supporting people’s rights to dignity.
‘My Dignity Action packs are a small start to making a true difference in dignified care throughout Castlerock. Hopefully this is the first of many small steps to promoting and raising awareness about dignity. I plan on visiting several CRG branches during February to promote Dignity in Care and bring all domiciliary care staff up to speed.’
Dignity is more than one day but Dignity Action Day gives people a more focused opportunity to demonstrate how we uphold dignity and promote it to others. Castlerock Recruitment Group also supports the 10 point dignity challenge representing the services that respects people’s dignity in care.
Castlerock Recruitment Group believes everyone can do their bit to change the way care services are delivered.We are always looking for Domiciliary Care Workers and Healthcare Assistants who have a real interest in supporting people to join out growing team.
