Catching up with the winners of the 2019 Health & Social Care Bursary

In 2019, the judges of the Insurance Corporation Health & Social Care Bursary were incredibly impressed by the enthusiasm and passion of the group behind the RITA Project. The project uses reminiscence therapy, also known as life therapy, to treat severe memory loss or dementia. It could include looking back on old photographs or listening to songs from decades past.

Deborah Harris, Moira Norman and Olwen Bain-Brehaut highlighted the growing evidence supporting the use of digital reminiscence therapy as a tool to improve the experience of patients in hospital and other care settings. Hoping to replicate the results being achieved in the UK with the use of machines called RITAs, they put their idea forward and were thrilled to receive the Bursary’s top prize of £2,000.
