What lifts you up?

on .

At Riversway Nursing Home our approach to care has always been person-centred.

 

To that end we regularly organise activities and trips out – recent visits have even included a boat trip.

 

But sometimes it’s the little things that make all the difference.

 

For Hazel it was a trip to the ‘hair salon’ at the home. For Bob it’s keeping routines and dreaming of winning the lottery! He hopes to buy a boat, but in the meantime he is happy just thinking of his favourite cup of tea he always has in the afternoon.

 

Meanwhile for Ted, it’s a chat over a cup of coffee or a frothy cappuccino in a sunny spot outside. During a recent conversation Ted told us about his favourite memories and pointed out all the beautiful things visible from the garden.

 


 

In memory of Joyce

on .

Riversway Nursing Home now has a lovely new bench taking pride of place in the garden.

 

The bench was donated by Mr Williams in loving memory of his wife, Joyce, a resident at Riversway for 2-3 months earlier in the year.

 

Mr Williams is also planning to visit with a small plaque for the bench when he visits to attend our Forget Me Not Café.

 

The café has been very helpful to him, and he reports that the time spent chatting about Joyce has been a ‘relief’ and ‘very effective’ leading him to continue to be involved in, and support, Riversway.

 

This is wonderful to hear and we’ll all remember Joyce fondly as we use the new bench.

 


 

Congratulations to Joel

on .

We’d all like to say congratulations to Joel Awe, a registered nurse here at Riversway Nursing Home, after he graduated from a course taken through the University of Liverpool.

 

Joel joined Riversway in October 2016, starting as one of our ‘bank’ of staff, and now he works full time as the senior nurse for the night team.

 

He successfully completed Master of Public Health qualification and graduated earlier this year in a special ceremony.

 

Well done Joel from all of us here at Riversway.

 

 

Walking for the memories

on .

A team from Riversway Nursing Home took part in the local Memory Walk for the Alzheimer’s Society in September.

 

The group of staff, family and friends including Ian, our 84 year old volunteer who is young at heart, took part in the 5km walk around Bristol Docks, joining thousands of people dedicated to raising awareness of dementia.

 

The group joined in the fun by wearing blue glitter, and thoroughly enjoyed the event which included music, dance and swapping stories and experiences.

 

Also thank you to Also Mary's family for coming along to cheer us on.

Bringing the beach to Riversway

on .

With the hot summer days now behind us, we decided to bring the beach to Riversway.

 

A group of residents spent time painting beach huts and creating a little beach scene near a window.

 

It was a lovely activity and lots of memories were brought back of beaches and experiences from their younger days.
