Dignity in Action Day


Each of our homes recently recognised 2024’s Dignity in Action Day through a wide range of appropriate activities for residents to take part in.

Dignity in Action Day is a very important awareness day in the calendar year that provides those in health and social care to officially recognise people’s rights to dignity and respect whilst receiving care.

Care homes and communities across the country participate in Dignity in Action Day through various activities. We held a Digni-Tea for residents and carers to come together to enjoy some time out and conversation.

Our manager at West Farm, Zahra Karimi, said: “It’s very important to celebrate Dignity in Action Day and continuously raise awareness about the importance of dignity in care. Observing Dignity Action Day is crucial in reminding us that care should always be provided with respect and kindness at its core.”

The residents sported cheerful red hats and engaged in the festivities. Everyone enjoyed the day which reinforced Craig Healthcare’s ethos of personalised, nurturing care where dignity is a fundamental aspect of daily life.

  • "Our mum has been a resident at Cramlington House for over a year and we have nothing but praise for the friendly, approachable staff and management. We always feel like part of an extended family and when we visit nothing is too much bother. We are completely happy with the standard of care, support and understanding we all receive as a family."

  • "From the first day, I knew it was the place for my mum. Clean, friendly staff, lovely environment! My mum would not get the opportunity to do the activities she is experiencing if she was not in Cramlington House. It is home from home and we can visit anytime. I can't say enough of how great Cramlington House is. "

  • "This is an absolutely superb care facility. The staff say that this is the home of the residents, in which they work - and they evidence that philosophy every day. In the last months of our mother's long life, we took comfort form the fact that she was safe and secure, being well-fed and looked after. The entire care team are brilliant. "

  • "All the staff at West Farm have provided such wonderful care, compassion and support to my auntie. We both feel incredibly lucky to have found West Farm, it’s been the perfect home for my auntie. I can honestly say, hand on heart, every aspect of the care provided by each member of staff at West Farm has been outstanding."
