Kim Bibby, Care Home Manager at Burton Closes Hall, said: “The Dignity Action Day activities will give members of the community the chance to come together to highlight the importance of dignity in care, learn more about what they can do to help support their loved ones, and to make this a really memorable day for the home’s residents.
“Dignity Action Day focuses on ensuring that our residents are afforded choice, control and a sense of purpose, and the feedback and contributions that we receive through open days such as this are invaluable.”
