Woodlands Park brews up to support Dignity Action Day
Young and old are coming together to pool their brain power over a traditional English tea party being served at a care home in Great Missenden in support of Dignity Action Day on Monday 2 February.
While enjoying an afternoon of cupcakes and a cuppa, the Woodlands Park Care Centre residents will work with sixth form students from The Misbourne to solve a quiz game before being entertained by the students singing – all in the spirit of Dignity Action Day, which 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.
“Treating individuals with dignity and respect is at the root of everything we do here at Woodlands Park - it’s 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,” comments manager for Woodlands Park Care Centre, Marie Shouler.
Knowing that people are treated with dignity and respect is one of the main reasons Tracey Rollins chose Woodlands Park for her father: ““My dad has been at Woodlands now for just over two years and the level of commitment and care the staff give him and all the other residents is second to none. My father's dementia means he suffers from very dark days at times, but whenever I visit the staff are so friendly, positive and upbeat - it makes my visits seem all the more worthwhile. I am greeted as a member of the Woodlands family and given support too. At the last Christmas dinner the staff managed to get dad up on his feet dancing - it was a joy to see.”
Woodlands Park is located on Aylesbury Road, just outside the village of Great Missenden in Buckinghamshire. Woodlands Park is part of the Forest Healthcare group of homes, which includes 12 individual homes throughout the South East of England.
