Supporting Staff with less traditional aids can improve care, support staff, contribute towards less falls and improve financial savings.
The overall aim of the home is to meet the individual needs of every resident. To achieve this, we use a person-centred approach to care in which each person has a named carer & is offered high levels of support on an individual basis. Activities are an important part of life at Hollybush House & our Activity Therapists & care staff organise a wide range of things to do both inside & outside the home.
Staff at Kent Community Health document the critical role RITA plays in supporting staff and patients alike, both clinically and environmentally. ‘The powerful affect and impact RITA has allows the patient to engage, interact and feel valued, RITA is like another member of staff on the Ward, part of the Sevenoaks Family’ Grahame Hardy – Specialist Nurse for Dementia
Grindon Short Break Service provides care and support for up to ten people who have a disability. RITA has been instrumental for when a new service user arrives at our site. We use RITA to assist with settling-in techniques and to help create a safe and engaging space for them. When a service user feels safe and relaxed, this same feeling then spills over to the family and makes them feel reassured.
RITA is used for both group and individual sessions. We have some residents who enjoy using it by themselves.
Throughout this case study you will read feedback from managers, across multiple sites in Sunderland. They share their experience using RITA & how it benefits each of their care homes & service users in their own unique way.
In March 2021 Sheffield CCG generously invested in RITA for over 14 of its care homes. “RITA is absolutely amazing! I wish I had 5! Honestly, I’m so grateful for it, it will definitely be one of the best things for people in care homes." Read more here......
When supplied with RITA, Meadowcroft fully embraced the technology. This case study documents some great examples of how RITA has helped to increase social engagement and enhance resident wellbeing. Reduced safeguarding incidents and reduced falls are just a couple of examples of the outcomes being achieved at Meadowcroft.
