Rose Mabiza

01-02-2024

Dignity Action Day, observed annually on February 1st, stands as a pivotal moment for both health and social care professionals and the wider public to affirm everyone's right to dignity. This day provides an invaluable opportunity to create memorable experiences for those receiving care, underlining the essence of respect, choice, and control.

Celebrating the invisible in care

The 2024 theme, "Making the Invisible Visible," aims to highlight the often-overlooked elements of care, acknowledging the unseen challenges faced by individuals and the efforts of healthcare professionals to provide compassionate and respectful care.

Dignity in care ensures individuals are treated with respect, compassion, and consideration. Dignity Action Day champions this cause, inviting active participation to enhance the well-being of care recipients, supported by over 45,000 Dignity Champions worldwide.

Engaging activities and supportive resources

The day is marked by a variety of activities such as "Digni-Tea" events, learning sessions, and intergenerational visits, all designed to make care recipients feel valued. Resource packs and online tools offer guidance for organising these events, ensuring a meaningful celebration of dignity.
