Digital Reminiscence Therapy Software (DRTS) Package

Organisation : NHS Lothian, Ellen's Glen Hospital
Grant Amount : £ 3,995

The Dementia Reminiscence Therapy System is a user friendly, interactive tool which provides stimulation and fun for patients, their families and friends, and staff involved in their care and support.

The tool is used with great success in over 100 hospital worldwide, and is fast becoming recognised as valuable tool in the care and stimulation of patients facing the challenges of differing diagnoses, and in reducing the stress and distress caused by hospitalisation.

Our project is to aquire one of these systems for use in Ellen’s Glen Hospital, sharing the resource between two In Patient Complex Care wards, facitlitating individual and group activities for the benefit of all our people here at Ellen’s Glen. The remaining cost of the system will be met through patient’s funds from Hawthorn Ward.
