With an ageing population, it’s more important than ever to ensure care homes are treating people with dignity, kindness and respect. That’s why we take pride in our Dignity in Care project, and like to celebrate good examples of care.
Over the past year, we have visited 24 care homes across the county to help them improve their care. 79% of care homes have put at least one of our recommendations in place.
Thalia Jervis, our Chief Executive said:
We’re really happy to see how well this project is developing.It’s so rewarding to see how care homes can make even the smallest adjustments to improve quality of life for their residents.
In response to our report, Gillian Quinton, Executive Director (Communities, Health and Adult Social Care) wrote:
Thank you for sending us the Dignity in Care annual report for 2018 – 19 – this work is helpful for commissioners and operational teams to gain further insight into the views of individuals receiving health and social care services in Buckinghamshire.
