This week we are no longer in special measures and I want to shout it from the roof tops! RITA has played a key part by increasing the activity for the residents and allowing us to deal with difficult situations more effectively.
The lead Falls Prevention Specialist and Dementia Specialist Nurse piloted the use of Reminiscence Interactive Therapy Activity systems (RITA) on wards with a high incidence of patients with dementia and falls. The aim of the pilot was to ascertain if the intervention of RITA would improve patients’ experience, wellbeing and reduce falls in older people in an acute setting.
Llys Cadfan is a care home owned by Gwynedd Council in North Wales. This case study provides an insight into how RITA was used to enhance the lives and well-being of residents at Llys Cadfan.
The RITA system has been rolled out on elderly care wards at both sites at the University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust, thanks to funding from the Charity and its supporters.
A new digital software package that is changing life on the wards for service users and staff alike!
We are committed to improving the patient experience for those with dementia and raising morale for both patients and staff. We are keen to offer stimulation to reduce boredom and to help reduce the risk of falls with the hospital.
