Annual trip to Bristol Aquarium

on .

A group from Riversway Nursing Home recently took an annual trip to Bristol Aquarium.


This was a first for new residents Elfrieda and June who were accompanied by their new friend Monica.


There was lots to see as Bristol Aquarium houses over 1,000 aquatic creatures including tropical sharks, rays, seahorses and piranhas.


During the visit the aquarium put on a demonstration and helped the residents to feed the tropical fish.


Last year, when Riverway Nursing Home visited the popular aquarium, the residents were disappointed not to see the octopus as he was playing hide and seek. Luckily when the residents arrived this year the octopus had come out of his hiding place to say hello.


Riversway Nursing Home is already looking forward to visiting again next year!

Burns night celebrations

on .

Residents from Riversway Care Home in Bristol celebrated Burns night in style, in the afternoon.


Burns night is celebrated predominantly in Scotland on January 25 each year and commemorates the life and work of poet Robert Burns.


The residents joined in with Scottish poems, chatted about the Loch Ness monster and enjoyed themed cheese and biscuits.


Everyone had a great afternoon!


Bristol rocks

on .

At Riversway we love a chance to get involved with the local community.


So we couldn’t wait to get stuck into the Bristol Rocks ‘phenomenon’ – a craze which has seen brightly painted or decorated rocks and pebbles left around the city’s streets, parks, playgrounds and car parks.


According to the local news, the craze is being welcomed by parents as a chance for children to get creative and away from their TVs and games consoles.


It is such a lovely idea we couldn’t wait to get stuck in at Riversway. So we’ve begun to contribute and to paint lots of rocks in preparation for leaving them around the city in Spring Time.


Bowling fun for Riversway

on .

Last week residents and their family members, along with our activity team, headed to the bowling in Bristol for some fun.


George Royston, Roger Hazel and family, plus our activity team with Lisa the team leader, headed to Tenpin in Bristol for a great afternoon which included a tasty burger.


We all look forward to visiting again soon!
