Sonnet Care Homes Dignity in Care Assessment Tool

Shared by Joan Sirett.

The dignity of our residents is a high priority within Sonnet Care Homes. Therefore, this assessment tool has been developed to assess the effectiveness of dignity within all units across the care facility. The assessment tool has two purposes:

  1. To assess dignity within a particular unit
  2. To become an action plan for units wishing to improve their performance and to be able to measure that action.

The assessment tool was developed by considering the following national policies:

  • Caring for Dignity, a national report on dignity in care for older people whilst in hospital. (Healthcare Commission 2107).
  • Guidance for the Care of Older People. (Nursing and Midwifery Council 2019)
