Dignity In Care Overview:
Dignity in care means the kind of care, in any setting, which supports and promotes, and does not undermine, a person’s self- respect regardless of any difference. While ‘dignity’ may be difficult to define, what is clear is that people know when they have not been treated with dignity and respect.
