Dignity in care means providing care that supports the self-respect of the person, recognising their capacities and ambitions, and does nothing to undermine it.
Read this guide, aimed at care providers, managers and staff who work with adults – especially older adults.
It defines the meaning of real everyday dignity to the lives of people receiving social care, their carers, families and friends, as well as the managers and staff who provide it. In effect, this means all of us. It also shows the links between dignity and key policy issues, and relates to Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulations at each stage.
