Dignity in Care Challenge!

A dignity champion is someone who believes passionately that being treated with dignity is a basic human right, not an optional extra.

Dignity In Care Champion

We at Asquith Hall believe that we are compassionate, person centred, efficient and willing to try everything to achieve this.

We are all dignity champions at Asquith Hall pledging to challenge poor care, to act as good role models and through specific guidelines issued by the dignity campaign to educate and inform all those working around us.

Dignity champions at Asquith Hall are willing to: –

  • Stand up and challenge disrespectful behaviour.
  • Act as good role models by treating other people with respect, particularly those who are less able to stand up for themselves.
  • Speak up about dignity to improve the way that services are organised and delivered.
  • Influence and inform colleagues.
  • Listen to and understand views and experiences of residents.

Dignity champions at Asquith Hall are all committed to taking action, however small, to create a care system that has compassion and respect for our residents.

Every member of staff receives training in dignity in care and are awarded a ‘dignity champion badge’ as recognition of our programme, led by care Co-ordinator, Elizabeth Copley.

Ask any of our staff for the 10 top tips in our dignity action plans or sign the pledge online at Asquith Hall.

We offer numerous examples of how we have tried and tested dignity champion principles, including: –

  • Our dignity tree
  • Our dignity action days
  • Our memory corner in the secret garden of residents we have loved and lost
  • Our dignity balloon release to celebrate dignity events
  • Our dining with dignity programme, dignity clothing, crockery and activities

Anyone can be a dignity champion and contribute to our pledge to improve care at Asquith Hall and beyond on a national level.
