Delivering Dignity is the final report of the Commission on Dignity in Care for Older People and sets out the Commission's work and recommendations on how to tackle the underlying causes of poor care.

Rather than a repetition of the well documented problems or a best practice guide for managers and staff, it focuses on how to tackle the underlying causes of poor care.

Some hospitals and care homes are already providing dignified care for older people; this report and the follow-up programme of activities are intended to build on existing good practice, so that we get it right for every person, every time.

This final report is based on the knowledge of the commissioners themselves, the many witnesses who gave written and oral evidence, and almost 230 submissions from organisations and individuals in response to our February 2012 consultation document.

Read a summary of all the feedback received.
