Christmas Memories

on .

Memory trees are a great way for residents to spend time recalling some of their favourite memories.

So recently we spent time adding messages of love, Christmas wishes and memories relating to the festive season, to our own tree here at Riversway.

Residents, families and staff all joined in with creating the decorations, during our recent Memory Café.

We also added some gingerbread biscuits which were recently baked.

There were some lovely memories written on the tree, including ‘Family holiday in Newquay,’ and ‘Mum making us dresses.’

The next café session will be held on Friday, January 5th from 10.30-12noon. For more information just ask a member of staff.


Charlotte wins the hamper

on .

Riversway was donated a lovely hamper of Christmas goodies, and we decided to use it to say thankyou to a lucky member of staff.

One of our residents helped out by choosing a name at random, and the winner was Charlotte, a carer on our ground floor.

Well done Charlotte, and enjoy the hamper!


Christmas and charity giving at Riversway

on .

At Riversway Nursing Home in Bristol, Christmas celebrations included a gift to charity.


Residents and visitors truly got into the spirit of Christmas during the home’s annual Christmas party, open to residents, family and friends.


This year as well as a visit by local musician Andy T, which was very well received, we held a raffle and Christmas jumper day in aid of Save the Children.


Of course it wouldn’t be a party without a tasty buffet, mulled wine, crackers, silly hates and singing songs.


A group of family and friends even headed off around the home – specially decorated for the occasion – to sing carols for everyone.


We’d like to thank everyone who joined us for the party, bringing presents and contributions which all made a big difference to us and to the donation to Save the Children.


Merry Christmas Everyone

Centenary celebrations for Riversway’s Olive

on .

Riversway Nursing Home is helping to celebrate a very special birthday – resident Olive Probert turns 100.


Olive, who spent much of her life in the Barton Hill area of Bristol, was joined by family members including two of her nephews for a party at Riversway.


The celebration included a visit by the local Salvation Army band who played some musical numbers to mark the occasion – arranged by staff at the home.


Both Olive and her husband Walter – now deceased – both worked for the historic printing firm Mardon’s in Bristol. At one point the couple lived in a home very close to Riversway’s location.


Nephew David Watts, of Warmley near Bristol, said Olive, who has no children, was looking forward to the party.


He said: “She always says she doesn’t know where the years have gone, and we joke with her that she must have enjoyed them to have had such a long and happy life!”


To mark the occasion staff decorated the home with balloons and presented Olive with a bunch of flowers and a cake.
