We have recently received some amazing feedback from our Palliative Care colleagues in North Tyneside who have been maximising their use of RITA at the North Tyneside Day Hospice. Quizzes, games, photos, video clips, music, sensory, painting and even the 'my life passport' features have all been used to enhance the wellbeing and quality of life of patients. An unexpected outcome has been that patients have enjoyed using the technology and that it has not been as “frightening” as they had imagined. Many patients have been encouraged to explore technology for themselves.
“It is great to see the flexibility of the Rita system being used to support the residents of North Tyneside across the different care settings”
Ruth Marshall - Clinical Quality Lead Nurse NHS North Tyneside CCG
Staff at Harplands Hospital provide an insight in to how they used RITA's reminiscence and activity content to positively engage with a patient and gave him a voice again!
