A Sanctuary Care home in Kidbrooke was proud to put on an array of activities to celebrate Dignity Action Day.
Residents at Meadows House Residential and Nursing Home were treated to a pamper session, with hand massages and manicures, before enjoying an old-fashioned ‘Dignitea’ party complete with delicious homemade cakes and live music entertainment.
For the afternoon’s activity residents wrote their thoughts about happiness, dignity and respect on paper leaves to attach to the home’s ‘Dignitree’, which will be kept in the main entrance to Meadows House. Residents also took part in a ‘Plant a Bulb for Dignity Action Day’ workshop, planting beautiful bulbs and flowers for the care home’s courtyard.
Dignity Action Day gives and provide a memorable day for people receiving care.
Isabel Nyirenda, home manager at Meadows House, said: “Dignity, respect and residents’ individuality are at the heart of our care services so we wanted to show our support for Dignity Action Day - we feel it’s a great way to encourage best practice and raise awareness of the importance of dignity in care. It’s also a wonderful opportunity for us to give our residents a special day to remember, everyone had a brilliant time taking part in the day’s activities.”
