Dignity Action Day is a national initiative led by the Dignity in Care Campaign and its key partners to bring staff and members of the public together to make a difference to those in care.
Dignity Action Day gives everyone the opportunity to contribute to upholding people’s rights to dignity and provide a truly memorable day for people receiving care. Dignity Action Day aims to ensure people who use care services are treated as individuals and are given choice, control and a sense of purpose in their daily lives.
Most of us at some point in our lives will be in contact with care services, be that in our work, as a service user, carer, relative or friend and when we do we hope we will be treated with Dignity and respect.
KIHTO Healthcare is helping to make sure that dignity is a reality for all. We do this by, treating each person as an individual by offering a personalised service, providing beds and medical equipment that enable people to maintain the maximum possible level of independence, choice and control.
Our beds and cots are designed to help improve the lives of our clients as well as those who care for patients, reducing strain and injury.
The products offered by KIHTO Healthcare are intricately designed with a focus on promoting independence, preserving dignity, and minimizing the financial burden of caregiver fees.
Here are several ways in which our products contribute to enhancing the dignity of those in care:
Independence and Control:
KIHTO’s medical beds, with features like height adjustability and automatic turning functions, empower individuals to have greater control over their positioning and movements.
Customisation for Individual Needs:
The fully profiling capability of KIHTO’s products allows for personalised adjustments, catering to the specific requirements of each individual. This customisation is essential for comfort, pressure relief, and efficient manual handling, acknowledging the uniqueness of each person’s needs.
Reduced Strain on Caregivers:
The height-adjustable mechanism of KIHTO’s medical beds is a game-changer in reducing strain on caregivers. By making single-handed care more manageable, it contributes to a higher quality of care, and, in turn, upholds the dignity of both the caregiver and the person receiving care.
Versatility for Various Conditions:
KIHTO’s multi-positional and multi-functional systems are designed to cater to a wide range of conditions such as muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease, tissue viability issues, and cerebral palsy. This adaptability ensures that individuals with diverse care needs can benefit from a bed system that respects their specific conditions.
The availability of highly sophisticated pressure-relieving mattresses with KIHTO’s turning beds is crucial for preventing pressure sores. By addressing tissue viability issues and enhancing overall comfort, these mattresses contribute to the dignity of individuals by minimizing discomfort and potential health complications.
KIHTO’s commitment to providing customisable, adaptable, and technologically advanced medical beds and equipment aligns with the principles of promoting dignity in care for individuals with complex needs. The emphasis on independence, customisation, and reducing caregiver strain collectively contributes to a more dignified and respectful care experience.
