MIN's very own Fiona Hassall visited our wonderful Northern Irish customers this week and the reception was simply amazing! Fiona visited Southern and Northern Health & Social Care Trusts on a whistle stop tour this week.
Representatives from senior management, RQIA and PHA were all present and were delighted to see RITA and hear about what a difference it is already making for staff and patients alike,
Here are some extracts taken from Twitter:
Dementia NI Tweeted: Fantastic news: staff at Craigavon Area Hospital have worked with Dementia NI members to make hospital stays easier for people with dementia through a new therapeutic activity system and Dementia Companion. Well done to all involved!
Orla Matthews from H&SC tweeted: We have 16 RITA ITUs, one for each Dementia Companion going out to areas across the Trust. Great to have Fiona Hassall (My Improvement Network) with us today.
1st day of #DementiaActionWeek So exciting to get our first @RITAsystem set up on DICU Holywell. This fab innovative system enables staff to deliver meaningful, therapeutic activities through digital technology.
Mairead McGahan from Southern H&SC tweeted: What an amazing start to Dementia Action Week 2022 - we had the pleasure of hosting @Dementia_NI @Hazel_DNI and colleagues from RQIANews and PHA @CearaSLT in @SouthernHSCT and a huge thanks to 2 South Medical, Dorsy, Willows and Non-Acute for showing RITA in Action!
