Riversway welcomes work placement students

on .

A group of three students are joining Riversway Nursing Home every Monday for their work placement.

 

The students are with us until early summer, and are proving to be a great help and source of enjoyment for residents and staff alike.

 

All three, Louise, Helena and Gurdith, are loving their time with us and we’d all like to say a big thank you for their hard work.

 

You can spot them on a Monday wearing a blue t-shirt!


 


 

 

Love is all around us

on .

Riversway Nursing Home undertook a small overnight renovation ready for a big Valentine’s day surprise.

As each resident woke in the morning, they received a chocolate treat and a Valentine’s day card from the home. and the home was decorated throughout to set a romantic atmosphere.  We had balloons, roses and lights to set the scene.

We all enjoyed the morning reminiscing about love and we shared heartfelt stories with each other. Stories about engagements and first dates came up most frequently!

The afternoon took an exciting turn when the residents watched a magic show in the lounge area, Richard the Magician was amazing....


 

Flippin’ pancakes, B & Q and Valentine's Day shopping

on .

Riversway Care Home in Bristol celebrated pancake day in style.

The staff from the home made delicious pancakes for the residents, whilst they selected their favourite toppings from the lemon and sugar, and Nutella and fruits laid out.

As Valentine’s day followed some of the ladies decided to go on a shopping trip for decorations to East Street in Bedminster. It was the first trip Muriel had been on and she was joined by her friends Betty and Dorothy. After some time browsing the shops the residents and staff stopped off for a spot of lunch.

Residents Roger, George and Ted also had a trip out to the local B&Q where they looked at a variety of hardware and DIY materials.

All in all, an exciting few days at Riversway Care Home.

Acorns and Oaks

on .

Riversway Nursing Home in Bristol, welcomed local toddlers thanks to a new ‘playgroup’ called Acorns and Oaks.

 

The playgroup was set up so that every Friday toddlers and parents from the local area – and the residents of Riversway – could enjoy each other’s company.

 

During the session the residents’ lounge gets transformed into a play area, full of toys and games to enjoy.

 

The children arrive at Riversway Nursing Home in the morning and enjoy time with the residents playing games, singing songs and generally having fun.

 

One mum who joins the session with her toddler said they both look forward to a Friday morning when they get to visit their new friends.

 

Thanks to everyone who attended.

Weaving with wool

on .

One of our lounges was a hub of creativity recently at Riversway Nursing Home as we took part in a crafty activity.

 

Some of our residents had a relaxing time experimenting with some wool weaving, making bright colourful flowers in contrast to the dull weather we’ve had.

 

Once complete, the flowers will be presented on our display boards.
