City and Hackney Older People's Dignity Code

This code has been developed by the City and Hackney older people's reference group following wide consultation and is representative of the views of older people across the boroughs.

The code sets out the issues considered to be important in contributing to personal dignity, how older people expect, deserve and have the right to be treated. This has been endorsed across the health and social care partnership.

This code is based closely around the Dignity in Care 10 point challenge and could be used as the basis for any group considering how to implement/provide dignified care for all adults.
