As always, we celebrated ‘Dignity Action Day’ (formally Dignity in Care Day) by running an event that both staff and residents can get involved in. This year our Activities Co-ordinator, Andy, organised a ‘Great M&J Bake Off’, which was very successful and resulted in some tasty cakes. We also offered staff and residents the opportunity to update our ‘Dignity Tree’, a project that started in 2014, where people can communicate what dignity means to them.
Mary & Joseph House received the Dignity in Care Award in 2008, and has continued to value their principles highly. We strongly believe that each and every individual should be treated with dignity, and has the right to have a ‘voice’.
