Entertainment and new friends

Recently Riversway had a day of entertainment, with a little something for everyone.

 

The occasion featured lots of poetry, balloons, jigsaws, quizzes and songs with entertainers. Our two newest residents bonded as they solved three jigsaws together.

 

This shows why we believe that activities are so important to life at Riversway, helping people to relax, have fun and make new friends.

 


 

Memories of wartime Bristol

Residents at Riversway Nursing Home relived memories of The Blitz recently to help an upcoming BBC TV show.

 

A producer from a production company stopped by to speak to residents about their memories of wartime Bristol and how life was during the turbulent time in the city’s history.

 

The company is planning a BBC social history series about The Blitz, which will focus on Bristol and how The Blitz affected life for the families caught up in life-changing moments.

 

The producer seemed very happy with what she had gathered as research for the show, and we are even expecting a return visit.

 

      


 

 

 

 

International Women’s Day at Riversway

Riversway Nursing Home in Bristol marked International Women’s Day recently by reminiscing about great women through history.

 

Residents particularly enjoyed discussing fighters for democracy and ambassadors of peace, and talked about how much tougher it was to be a woman in the 1950s.

 

The day also included a quiz, games and was finished by singing RESPECT by Aretha Franklin, and other famous tunes.

 

Everyone had a wonderful time, and we all enjoyed finishing the day off with a group sing-a-long.

Garden centre visit for Riversway

Residents from Bristol’s Riversway Nursing Home had a great time at a local garden centre recently.

 

The popular trip to Whitehall Garden Centre at Whitchurch was a great success with our group looking at the colourful displays and enjoying the different sights and smells at the popular destination.

 

We have a green-fingered group here at Riversway and this visit was a great way to spend the day.

Enjoying lunch at Riversway

Mealtimes are a great way for our residents to get together and enjoy a nice meal and a chat.

 

They’re an important part of every day, and pictured here is a group of residents getting ready for their lunch by relaxing with a craft activity. The group was led by Service Manager Sarah in an activity session including colouring in some lovely pictures.

 

When it came to the meal itself, this group of three residents couldn’t have been happier with their food, finishing off both the main course and desert. A fine tribute to our chefs.
