Riversway basketball

on .

At Riversway Nursing Home we like to keep residents active throughout the day.


Each month we take part in a sporting activity that everyone can get involved with – this week everyone took part in basketball training.


The moving basketball net and soft ball visited everyone in the communal areas and in their rooms. Residents had such good fun shooting the ball into the net throughout the day and some even got a little competitive.


Staff and residents had a great time playing basketball and are looking forward to their next session soon.

Time for a Cuppa at Riversway

on .

There’s always time for a nice brew and slice of cake at Riversway Nursing Home.


Recently, staff went round Riversway offering everyone a piece of delicious cake including a chocolate cake and strawberry cake to go with their cuppa. The tasty treats were arranged as part of the national Time for a Cuppa Week, organised by Dementia UK (1st - 8th March).


Everyone thought the cakes were lovely, and as we ‘delivered’ the tasty treats we also started a raffle with staff and family members to raise money for the good cause. The raffle prize will be Easter eggs.



Riversway rocks

on .

Riversway residents joined in with a colourful craze sweeping Bristol recently.


Painted rocks have been taking the city by storm – left in random locations around Bristol. The scheme was created to encourage children to get creative and away from their iPads and computer games.


Rocks are painted by hand and left in locations from local supermarkets to playing fields for other youngsters to find, with the results posted to dedicated social media pages.


Riversway joined in the fun, and we were told recently that some of the children who visit us from a local nursery spotted a red rock painted by our very own Jacqueline.


Once the children arrived we also celebrated little Esme’s birthday with games and party hats.


Riversway residents put on their dancing shoes

on .

Our residents at Riversway Nursing Home put on their dancing shoes recently when a local teacher came to share her skills with us.


Residents were taught a mixture of dance moves from the tango, to flamenco, and the waltz.  Taking part from the comfort of their chairs so that everyone could join in, they moved their bodies to the beat of the music.


Joyce, even showed off her unique moves when she showed the dance teacher how to cha cha cha, it was great to see.


We can’t wait to have a second dance lesson next month as everyone had a lovely afternoon!

Spring is knocking at the door

on .

It might be cold outside Riversway Nursing Home, but it’s very much springtime inside thanks to a recent activity.


Residents, family and staff spent time crafting beautiful blooming trees using tissue paper, and making sun-catchers with colourful plastic, we even took photos of the activity through the coloured paper – I’m sure you can guess which ones we took from the photos below!


We were dreaming of the snow whilst crafting, and then as if by magic it started snowing, as if to remind us of which season we were in, winter!


The cold weather didn’t put us off going for a little walk and we enjoyed the crisp, bright day and finished the walk off with a nice hot cuppa.
