Dignity Action Day is an annual national event to promote dignity in care.
At Station House, the team know that treating people as individuals and celebrating their achievements, past and present, is a big part of dignity, so on Friday 1st February they will be doing just that.
Activities Coordinator Paula Chesworth has been working with residents for some time, capturing their memories of work, the war and their family life. Paula said: “We want to understand residents’ life experience because it helps us to create care and activity plans that will help them live fulfilled lives.
“On Friday, we will use what residents have told us, as well as a film called My Life, to discuss their memories and achievements.”
The film shows vintage footage of work, family life, current affairs and film stars and will be played on a special interactive touchscreen that allows residents to participate as well as concentrating on and talking about the things that interest them and trigger memories.
In the afternoon, the home will be celebrating Dignity Action Day with a party for friends and relatives. Paula added: “Accordionist Robert Burston will be joining us. He is incredibly popular with the residents and I am sure several of them will be joining him on stage for a sing-along.”
