Being creative and having fun!

on .

Art and craft sessions are very popular at Riversway Nursing Home and we recently had lots of fun painting cut out tea-pots, cupcakes and rocks with a selection of acrylic paints.

After deciding on a teapot and rock pattern and also the colour of our favourite cupcake, we got on with painting them all,  we then left them to dry before having a break to enjoying a nice cup of tea and a selection of biscuits, after a productive afternoon our ladies and gentlemen had certainly earned it.

It was a very fun and creative activity with lots of chatter – now what can we paint next!

Deals on Wheels at Riversway

on .

Riversway Nursing Home has invented ‘Deals on Wheels’ a new little mobile shop that will tour around the home.


Every Wednesday afternoon you will find our ‘Deals on wheels’ shop selling all kinds of toiletries and goodies for our ladies and gentlemen to choose from.


Everyone at Riversway loved the fun little mobile shop and it was hailed a great success. It helps us ensure that everyone has all the daily essentials they need, and I’m sure you’ll agree, it’s nice to do a bit of shopping now and again.


What a great idea, well done team Riversway!


Caring Hero award for Hellen

on .

Hellen has been awarded this month’s Caring Hero award for her excellent commitment to quality management when it comes to the busy laundry duties at Riversway Nursing Home.

Hellen ensures that all our resident’s garments are washed, dried and ironed with care so that they have clean clothes in a timely manner.

With standards to set and targets to meet to enable the care home’s laundry department to run efficiently, Hellen ensures that the process runs smoothly throughout the home at all times.

She was nominated by Sarah, the floor manager and fellow carers for her kindness and enthusiasm when showing work experience students how it’s done.

Sarah said: “Hellen showed that when put under a lot of pressure in certain situations she always goes above and beyond to help residents and she ensures a level of quality excellence. 

“Sometimes it may seem that the laundry team are forgotten and Hellen was really surprised about her nomination, but we all agree that every single member of staff is essential in delivering quality care at Riversway and Hellen deserves this award.

Hellen works really hard behind the scenes and she has been extra special with work experience students, showing them how to work in a care environment and explaining all of the trade secrets of her laundry role, as well as being very welcoming.”


Well done Hellen.


Chocolate chip cookies at Riversway

We made some chocolate chip cookies recently and it was a lovely baking treat.

Our residents loved mixing the ingredients and making the cookie dough, they thoroughly enjoyed making sure that there was enough to go around.

Pam mixed up the dough while Brenda added the chocolate stars, great team work!

The finished cookies were huge, so once shared out everyone agreed they tasted fantastic.

We The Curious

on .

A wonderful day was had by all our residents and Lifestyle team when we recently visited Bristol’s We The Curious.

On the We The Curious website it reads ‘Our venue on Bristol’s harbourside is a bit like an indoor festival, with all sorts of different experiences, where you can interact with exhibits and take part in experiments.  It’s where boundaries are removed between science, art, people and ideas’ – So after reading this we knew that we just had to visit!

And we were right, our ladies and gentlemen, and staff team had a wonderful day exploring the hands on exhibits and science shows where you are encouraged to be part of everything, to be curious, to look at things, peer closer, touch the exhibits, ask questions and the best bit – be playful!

We even squeezed in time to enjoy an amazing 3D show in the Planetarium, it was fantastic! Before it started we just couldn’t resist taking photos of each other wearing the 3D glasses.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we’re guessing that the next time we ask where do you want to go next, We The Curious will be top of the list!
