Here at Shaw Healthcare, one of things we pride ourselves on is maintaining the dignity of our clients and residents throughout the care that they receive from us, whether this is in one of our homes or in their own.
Our belief is that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity as a basic human right, no matter the level of care they require or the tasks they need help with. We believe that treating people with dignity includes:
• Respecting any cultural or religious beliefs
• Being polite
• Being thoughtful and caring
• Keeping the person informed at all times
• Meeting all needs
• Ensuring the privacy of the person is respected
All of our staff strongly believe in supporting dignity and respect within our care homes and when we visit our clients in their own homes. We also know that dignity comes from reassurance and support when someone is unwell and in an unfamiliar environment, and we always strive to make our residents comfortable and provide a comforting presence to them.
