Dignity in Care tea dance at Birch Green

At the end of October we danced for dignity whilst supporting Dignity in Care’s nationwide campaign.


We held a Dancing for Dignity tea dance for all our residents and staff, with special guest singer George who serenaded the afternoon away for us with plenty of our favourite songs that we danced and sang along to. Everyone had plenty of dancing to do, to burn off all those delicious cream cakes that were served during the afternoon!


Every year we support the campaign which began in 2006 and eleven years on there are over 86,000 Dignity Champions all doing what they can to make a difference to people’s lives.


Dignity in Care Action day is one of the ways we can showcase what is being achieved at Birch Green Care Home to promote dignity.

*Before the Dignity in Care campaign launched, numerous focus groups took place around the country to find out what Dignity in Care meant to people. The issues raised at these events resulted in the development of the 10 Point Dignity Challenge (now the 10 Dignity Do's). The challenge describes values and actions that high quality services that respect people's dignity should:


The 10 Dignity Do's

  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 positive self-esteem
  10. Act to alleviate people's loneliness and isolation
