For Friday’s Dignity Action Day event, Mayor of Bexley Brian Bishop, said: “There is no better occasion than Dignity Action Day to remind ourselves of the huge respect we owe to those in our care homes”
Dignity Action Day is an annual opportunity for health and social care workers, and members of the public to uphold people’s rights to dignity in care. The day is promoted across the UK on 1st February 2019.
Friends, family and health care professionals were invited to come along to Riverdale Court Care Home in Welling and across the UK to celebrate Dignity Action Day. Everyone was invited to join staff and residents for a cup of tea and see our Dignity Trees.

“We enjoyed our afternoon and was happy to see The Mayor of Bexley Brian Bisjop visiting our residents and staff ”, said Nicolas, “it’s a great chance to remind each other about treating each other with dignity”.
