Theme 4 Dignified Care

The principle of dignified care is that the people in Wales are treated with dignity and respect and treat others the same. Fundamental human rights to dignity, privacy and informed choice must be protected at all times, and the care provided must take account of the individual’s needs, abilities and wishes.

What this means for me as a person when the standards within this theme are met:

  • I receive a quality service in all care settings
  • My voice is heard and listened to
  • I experience a care system where all participants are treated with compassion, dignity and respect
