“We have found RITA to be a great resource to reduce the risk of falls” – Jackie Taylor – Manager.

Introducing RITA has not only improved social inclusion but also the mood and wellbeing of residents. One resident in particular who was a quiet man and generally kept himself in his room has really come out of his shell since using the system. He loves to use the singalong and poetry and the whack amole really makes him laugh! He is so proud of himself that he can use a piece of technology and this is helping to improve his independence and overall wellbeing.

Using RITA also helps to improve interaction and conversation between staff and residents as they are often prompted by things on the system which gets them reminiscing about their past – one resident liked to play Free Kick as the green strip reminded her of her husband who used to play in similar colours.

Group activities using RITA include Bingo, Horse Racing and Pig Racing and the residents are enjoying using the touchscreen and are proud that they are able to use it independently. The painting and exercises have proven useful with residents to help with agitation.

Overall, RITA has helped to significantly calm challenging behaviours, promote independence and the use of meaningful activities which all help to improve mood and wellbeing of residents at Wordsley Hall.
