Dignity in Care Champions | I Care Ambassador
Stella Baxter, Registered Manager for Athena Care says "As a Dignity Champion and an I Care Ambassador I believe passionately that being treated with dignity is a basic human right, not an optional extra. As an organisation we believe that care services must be compassionate, person centered, as well as efficient, and are consistently striving to achieve this and exceed standards".
We believe high quality care services that respect people's dignity should:
- Have a zero tolerance of all forms of abuse.
- Support people with the same respect you would want for yourself or a member of your family.
- Treat each person as an individual by offering a personalised service.
- Enable people to maintain the maximum possible level of independence, choice and control.
- Listen and support people to express their needs and wants.
- Respect people's right to privacy.
- Ensure people feel able to complain without fear of retribution.
- Engage with family members and carers as partners
- Assist people to maintain confidence and a positive self-esteem.
- Act to alleviate people's loneliness and isolation.
