Ongoing commitment to respecting the human rights of residents living in Avery care homes

In the UK, human rights are protected by The Human Rights Act 1998, which provides a framework to ensure that basic principles, including dignity, fairness, respect, and equality are applied to every citizen in the country, regardless of where they live. Of the 16 key rights that are set out in the Human Rights Act, some are of particular relevance to people living in care homes. To mark Human Rights Day, which is recognised across the world every year on 10th December, Jo Crossland, Avery’s Head of Dementia Care has worked with colleagues to develop an information booklet explaining how the Human Rights Act applies to residents living in care homes.

The booklet will be widely available in all Avery homes for residents, families, staff and visitors to access.
