A DIGNITY tree was adorned with messages from residents and staff at a Rotherham care home to mark Dignity Action Day – Dignity in Care.
The heart-shaped notes were filled with what dignity means to those at Broadacres Care Home, on Naylor Street, Parkgate.
They were installed on a tree in the garden as a symbol of the staff’s commitment and the residents’ expectations of the care provided at the home.
Diane Rice, activities coordinator at Broadacres Care Home, said: “We celebrate Dignity Action Day – Dignity in Care every year to demonstrate our commitment to providing the highest standards of care for our residents.”
The national day promotes the right to dignity and encourages the provision a memorable day for those living in care.
Alongside the dignity tree decorating, residents were treated to entertainment from husband and wife duo Alan and Sue Mosley.
The singers have been travelling around care homes and charities in the region, after joining a choir five years ago, to provide free entertainment.
Having visited Broadacres Care Home previously, they requested a return performance to mark Dignity Action Day.
They had the home’s residents singing along to classics such as King of the Road, Singing the Blues, Crazy and many more favourites.
Diane added: “We can’t thank Alan and Sue enough for visiting the home again and entertaining the residents.
“Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the performance, singing along to their favourite songs and enjoying the day.”
