Most of us at some point in our lives will be in contact with care services, be that in our work, as a service user, carer, relative or friend and when we do we hope we will be treated with dignity and respect. Over 2 million health and social care staff in the UK work around the clock to provide support and care for those in need.
Over 88,000 Champions from all walks of life have joined forces to provide a more dignified service for everyone, Waters Edge Care Home is helping to make sure that dignity is a reality for all.
Over and above the care that Waters Edge provided on a daily basis we are running an event as part of a national month of action to promote and raise funds Dignity in Care.
The Care Home in Great Wryley will be holding a Dance-a-thon with a special performance of New York, New York planned with visitors from Brownhills School who will be joining in. The Dance-a-thon is being held on Thursday 25th October at 2pm.
Sandra Potts Care Home Manager said: “We are looking forward to Dancing for Dignity with the pupils from Brownhills School. The Dance-a-thon will be great fun for the residents and staff to take part in”
