Hoople drives discussion on dignity in care

Monday 11 January 2016 2.58pm

Dignity Action Day 2016Dignity Action Day will this year take place on 1 February. Hoople will be recognising the occasion by inviting all Herefordshire’s care providers to contribute to a discussion on the importance of dignity in their particular care setting.

Each provider will be asked to respond to the question:

  • What do you do to support staff in promoting dignity in your establishment or service

The responses will be submitted on a ‘leaf’ to be added to a ‘digni-tree’ that will be created and displayed in the foyer at Hoople’s Training Centre in Churchill Gardens, Hereford for the whole of the month of February.

As well as a focal point and inspiration to visitors to the Training Centre, the digni-tree will be used as a teaching aid with Hoople health and social care learners to raise awareness of the importance of dignity in care.

Ali Chambers, Senior Manager, Workplace Learning and Support Services at Hoople, said: “Our learners and the many visitors to our Training Centre will, we hope, be inspired by the digni-tree to think about the importance of dignity in care.  They’ll also be able to read the comments from Herefordshire’s care providers and thereby gain some insight into the central importance they place on dignity in care – not just on Dignity Action Day but every day of the year.”
