The 10 Dignity Do’s

We endeavour to promote awareness of these 10 points to everyone connected with health and social care.

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:

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

We endeavour to promote awareness of these 10 points to everyone connected with health and social care.

A Dignified Revolution goes full circle

A message from the organisers.

A Dignified Revolution was established in 2008 and has focused on raising awareness of vulnerable older people’s right to dignity and respect when they are in hospital. It was established by a small group of people who had experienced first-hand, unacceptable standards of care when their loved ones were in hospital.

We’ve put the amended Dignity Networks functionality live.

We have updated the workings of the website to enable Champion’s Networks to register and update their details more easily

– Anyone adding a new network will complete the more detailed form.
– The form will be submitted for approval to Peter (Network Coordinator/Administrator).
– Each Network can now login and add updates.

As a first step I would ask all existing Networks to access the system and to update their details and add some status updates.

Remember to include the post code of the Network Lead and the way that new Champions can make contact to join your group – we need you out there coordinating local activities and encouraging Champions who may be working in isolation without your help and support.
