We are so pleased to announce that we are celebrating 100 Dignity in Care visits!
Bucks County Council commissioned us to run this project. The aim of the project is to use the voices of those in care to make improvements in care homes. This way, we can make sure that the needs of residents is at the heart of any changes being made. The reports also inform the public. It helps them make the right choices around care through a star rating system.
We have given over 80% of the care homes visited a 4 or 5-star rating. This is a great testament to all of the hard work local carers and managers do on a daily basis.
We are immensely proud to have made 100 care homes visits in 30 towns and villages across Bucks county. This work would not have been possible without our volunteers who have given over 6000 hours to the Dignity in Care project.
Our Chief Executive, Thalia Jervis, said:
We are so happy with the great work we have achieved with this project. It’s been a pleasure to work closely with care providers in Bucks and see care homes improve and flourish.
Real Stories – Working in Care
To celebrate this achievement, we have asked people working in local care homes about what they do to look after residents, and what they enjoy about their work.
We spoke to Liz – an Activity Coordinator, Jonathan – a Client Services Manager, and Abi – a Care Worker. While they all do very different things, they are all immensely proud of the work they do. Make sure to check out their Real Stories.
