Orla Mathews, Dementia Service Improvement Lead (Hospitals), Northern Health and Social Care Trust:
“RITA is already proving to be an invaluable resource for in-patients who are living with a dementia throughout the Northern Health and Social Care Trust, assisting our Dementia Companions to provide therapeutic engagement and meaningful activity using innovative, digital technology. The news that My Improvement Network have linked up with Northern Ireland Screen is very welcome. By providing local reminiscence content curated from our region, our patients will have access to imagery that is relevant to many of their life stories and lived experience. Really looking forward to this fabulous additional content.”
