Down on the farm for Riversway

A group from Riversway visited the Windmill Hill City Farm in Bristol recently to enjoy a taste of rural life.


Our residents were excited to see animals including pigs, goats, hens, ducks and geese, along with many flowers and plants as they took a look at the colourful allotments.


It was lovely to see children playing at the popular destination and we’re already looking forward to our return visit.








A walk by the river

Riversway Nursing Home is in a lovely spot by the River here in Bristol.


This means that sunny weather is a great opportunity to step out for a walk. Recently our resident Betty spent time on the riverbank spotting flowers.


The beautiful walk was topped with afternoon tea of scone and cappuccino.


Enjoying nature & technology at Riversway

Our residents enjoyed nature in a mix of traditional and modern ways recently.

First of all we went for a walk in a local wood to enjoy the scenery, then our resident Betty used an iPad to add colours to a picture of a beautiful swan.

There are no limits to the ways in which we can all benefit from therapeutic activity and at Riversway we love to embrace new technology while at the same time enjoying activities like walks.





Brian’s gift for Riversway’s Easter

Riversway Nursing Home celebrated Easter in style this year with a range of activities.


We’re lucky to have lovely residents with amazing relatives always keen to join in with the fun. This is perfectly reflected in Brian, who visits every day to spend time with his wife Mo and always brings treats – this time It was eggs donated for every resident, that’s 72 in total!


We also ate hot cross buns, chocolate eggs, Easter biscuits and celebrated with homemade bonnets, flowers which had been planted by our own residents and a big raffle and games.


It was a lovely social occasion, but residents also found time to think about their loved ones, and pick and write some colourful Easter cards.

A day in the garden, ready for Spring

At Riversway we’re lucky to have a wonderful garden that our residents love spending time in.


So recently a group headed outside to seed some potatoes and other vegetables while our very own professional, Roy, cleaned the baskets of weeds.


Resident Olive watered the garden’s flowers, and we even had time afterwards to create some Easter decorations.


We are all looking forward to watching everything grow and bloom in the forthcoming summer months.



There's a few photos to date on our Facebook page (click HERE), we will keep the album updated with our progress :)
