On February 1st Somerset Care celebrated Dignity Action Day.
Dignity Action Day is a chance to raise awareness of the importance of dignity in care.
Critchill Court residential home in Frome celebrated with a Dignity Action Day party, full of activities for the residents, visitors and staff to enjoy. The residents made and decorated cupcakes, listened to a local musician and made bookings for the ‘wash and go’, a make shift car wash for zimmer frames and walking sticks.
As well as the fun activities Jess Symes, Critchill Court’s Dignity Champion and her mother made ribbons which they sold on the day. In total they raised £60 for their dignity fund, which is used to purchase items for the residents.
