Redfest outing for Riversway group

A group from Riversway Nursing Home in Bristol attended the popular Redfest in Bristol’s St George Park recently.

 

Redfest is a free annual community and arts festival, featuring performances, exhibitions and installations. The highlight is a full-day festival in St George’s Park which attracts thousands of people.

 

The party, including residents and staff from Riversway, made the most of nice weather to enjoy the sights and sounds and take in some refreshments.

Culture on the agenda in visit to museum

A party from Riversway Nursing Home headed to the Holburne Museum in nearby Bath recently.

 

Our group, with members who had visited the museum before, along with those who never had, thoroughly enjoyed the visit to this fantastic collection of art.

 

The centrepiece of the museum is the collection of Sir William Holburne, the 5th baronet of Menstrie. Sir Wiliam left the items he had collected over his lifetime, particularly bronze sculptures, silver, porcelain and Dutch landscapes.

 

We also had time for some refreshments in the museum’s lovely gardens.

Thank you for our gifts

All of us at Riversway would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to volunteers Bonnie and Margaret for making and bringing in their beautiful knitted gifts.

 

The gifts of ‘twiddle muffs’ and aprons were very much appreciated. These special presents are thickly knitted hand muffs and aprons with items attached inside and out in order to provide stimulation for restless hands, particularly in people with dementia.

 

All our residents loved trying them on for size and we know they’ll get real pleasure from them.

Special guest at Riversway

At Riversway we are focused on working with residents and their families to give them the best possible experience living here.

Part of this process is understanding people’s likes, dislikes and hobbies, and we were delighted to help our resident Jean who has a particular love for her pet budgerigar.

The little parrot is now safely housed in Jean’s room, and both are clearly delighted to be sharing accommodation. We hope the beautiful bird enjoys its stay as guest of honour.

Garden centre visit

Many of our residents have green fingers and love spending time in our garden or a local garden centre.

Recently a group of residents and staff visited Fonthill Garden Centre in Bitton, between Bath and Bristol.

They enjoyed examining the centre’s colourful plants and flowers, as well as admiring cuddly toys in the shop, fish in the ponds, and finally stopping for a cuppa in the café.
