Dignity
in Care

Friday Sekoia is presenting the "Dignity in care" award at the Great British Care Awards show, as part of a sponsorship. We're of course doing this to connect with all the people going to this event. But first of all to fly the flag for something utterly important.

To summarize what dignity in care really means, we've taken the liberty to redirect you to someone who knows all there is to know on the subject matter. The National Dignity Council and their "Dignity in Care" campaign, which has since 2006 registered more than 60,000 dignity champions. 

These champions are part of a nationwide movement, working individually and collectively, to ensure people have a good experience of care when they need it. They include councillors, staff at all levels in NHS and social care, volunteers, service users, their carers and members of the public.

The Dignity in Care campaign aims to put dignity and respect at the heart of UK care services. We are all in support for that.

As part of the fundation of their campaign numerous focus groups took place around he country to find out what Dignity in Care meant to people. The issues raised here resulted in a 10 Point Dignity Challenge (now the 10 Dignity Do's):

  1. Have a zero tolerance of all forms of abuse 
  2. Support people with the same respect you would want for yourself or a member of your family 
  3. Treat each person as an individual by offering a personalised service 
  4. Enable people to maintain the maximum possible level of independence, choice and control 
  5. Listen and support people to express their needs and wants 
  6. Respect people's right to privacy 
  7. Ensure people feel able to complain without fear of retribution 
  8. Engage with family members and carers as care partners 
  9. Assist people to maintain confidence and positive self-esteem 
  10. Act to alleviate people's loneliness and isolation

Food for thought and fine rules to live by.

 

Data: A key to better
Care and Compliance

As the demands of documentation continue to grow and the way of providing care increasingly shifts towards being more digital, the amount of data available also increases. This transition contributes towards the shaping of future care homes across the UK. We are looking at 3 areas that will benefit straight away.

Implementation is key
to value creation

Digitisation often involves the introduction of one or more new tools that employees must relate to and ideally utilise in a meaningful way. In many cases this takes place in line with an organisational process aimed at improving quality, optimising operations or a third anchor for initiating the digital change. If this is the case, there are a number of considerations that can be made.
