Borehamwood care home goes mad to support Dignity Action Day
A Mad Hatter’s tea party is being served to residents of a care home in Borehamwood who are supporting Dignity Action Day, which takes place on Sunday 1 February.
Dignity Action Day is a national initiative led by the Dignity in Care Campaign and its key partners to highlight the importance of preserving the dignity of people in care, which is at the root of everything Forest Care Village stands for, as operational manager Wendy Lawther says: “Treating individuals with dignity and respect is the key to creating a happy and caring environment for our residents, so Dignity Action Day is a cause that’s very close to our hearts. We are very proud to celebrate not only what we are achieving here but the importance of promoting the health and happiness of people in a caring and safe environment.”
This sentiment is echoed by Dorothy Soer, the wife of one of residents: “I am so lucky that my Derek was in respite here for two weeks and we were so happy with the way he was looked after, that we chose Forest Care Village as a permanent place for him to live. This was based on the kindness, food, facilities, upkeep, entertainment and the ever-friendly staff.”
Forest Care Village, Cardinal Avenue, Borehamwood, is a purpose-built specialist nursing home providing care and treatment for individuals with acquired brain injuries and neurological conditions. The home also provides care and treatment for people of working age with life-long physical conditions.
