Decorating our forget me not cafe

Riversway’s Forget Me Not Café will next open its doors on September 29, and we’ve already begun getting ready for the big day.

 

Residents had the inspiration of decorating paper teapots and cupcakes to give our café a theme, as a cosy place to meet up and enjoy a brew.

 

During one of our occupational activities we also spent time folding napkins to give them attractive shapes – residents Leena, Betty and Dorothy folded many, many napkins to help us.

 

The café will run from 10.30am to 12noon. For more information ask a member of Riversway’s staff.

A vote for our artists

Artwork by some of our residents has been on display at Bristol Central Library as part of a celebration of age.

The event, run by Age UK in Bristol and Bristol City Council, encouraged people over 50 to submit artwork which would be displayed in the library foyer and entrance in a bid to break down stereotypes surrounding older people.

Visitors to the library were encouraged to pick their favourites ahead of a presentation at City Hall.

Artwork by Riversway’s residents Marianne and Sheila was included in the display, and while they didn’t win, it was great to get involved.

We’d like to say a special thanks to Riversway’s own artist, Roland, who helped the creative pair in their efforts, and to all the local artists and students that have worked with us over the years, helping to inspire and support creativity.

We also like to thank Marina and Joachin from Germany for sending through their photos of their visit to the library with Marianne to view her art work.

Everyone is looking forward to seeing the artwork hanging on Riversway’s walls now the competition is over.

Cheese on the menu at Riversway

Riversway’s talented chef, Simon, offered to help us arrange a cheese tasting session for residents.

 

We served up tasty treats from countries including the UK and France, and of course some wine as the perfect accompaniment.

 

The activity went down very well with everyone and there were clean plates all round afterwards.

 


 

Bonding through massage therapy

  

A recent therapy session saw one of our residents, Dennis, enjoy a sensory session that enabled him to spend quality relaxation time with his wife.

 

The activity involved a number of residents who enjoyed the therapy session which included massage, relaxation and rejuvenating mud masks.

 

Dennis’ wife joined us for the activity and connected with her husband through a gentle massage – a nice moment for us all to remind everyone that families can have a real healing effect.

 

We all enjoyed seeing the faces of the residents as they enjoyed the sessions

 


 

  

Time on the river

A group of Riversway Nusing Home residents took part in a special activity which saw them take a trip on the river.

Residents including Roy, Nook, Jakki, Maude, Joan and Mac donned life jackets for the trip, arranged through local watersports specialists All Aboard, based at Bristol Marina.

It was a special day for everyone but in particular Maude who in her younger days had her own boat and used to make the same trip our group did.

The trip brought back some strong memories for everyone and we’d like to thank All Aboard for their support for this trip from beginning to end.

The trip was made possible thanks to the residents fund and donations from family members. This is a really important source of income for Riversway and helps us to arrange special trips like this one and we are grateful for all donations.
