Fun in ‘the garden’

A group from Riversway recently enjoyed an outing to the University of Bristol Botanic Garden.

Everyone enjoyed the visit, seeing our first spring flowers and some lemon trees in the wonderful location.

The garden is a wonderful attraction to have on our doorstep, set against the backdrop of a historic Victorian stately home.

As well as the plants, we couldn’t resist a delicious meal of chicken and chips while we were out.

Getting busy in the garden

One of our residents, Roy, took great pride and pleasure in helping to tidy our garden recently.

Roy joined our gardener, Haley, assisting as she went to work with hedge trimmers. Roy was a big help with his broom, helping to clear our patio, and he loved spending time outdoors.

A big thanks goes to both Roy and Haley for their hard work.

Time for tea

A group of Riversway’s residents and staff headed to The Blitz Tearoom in Weston-super-Mare recently for some refreshment.

The lovely café, just a short walk from the coast, is full of wartime mementoes, and we all enjoyed a nice cup of tea, scones and cakes.

Balloons bring us together

Recently a number of our residents at Riversway gathered together for a game of ‘Hit the Balloon.’

This simple game is a great way to bring people together and even the quietest among us get stuck in and have a great time.

Activities like this are a great way to keep bodies and minds healthy, and are an important part of everyday life at Riversway.

Keeping fit and healthy at Riversway

Health and fitness is one of the most important elements of life at Riversway Nursing Home.


As a result we have a visit every two weeks by local physiotherapist Andy, in one of the most popular activities we run at the home.


Recently Andy popped by to put us all through our paces, with Marianne enjoying the boxing sessions, John strengthening his legs kicking a ball across the room, and Jeane working out on the step-ups.


Andy is a very popular visitor and has really helped our residents a great deal, getting people exercising at a suitable level whatever their age.
