Housework can be therapeutic!

Our ladies at Riversway often like to volunteer to do some gentle house working duties.
 
We believe that this helps to promote independence and it's lovely to see everyone getting involved.
 
We folded washing and napkins together, paired socks, polished cutlery and untangled some wool.
 
Everyone enjoyed helping each other and getting involved, it's good to have a daily routine.

Biscuits and baking for making memories

It was great to get our residents involved in making different types of biscuits with Linda.

Everyone had lots of fun making shortbread and gingerbread.

These baking activities are a great way to help promote conversation and get people talking about their memories.

Jacqueline was very good at making the dough and was keen to share stories about doing lots of baking for her children.  


 

Art sweet Art

Last week our residents at Riversway Nursing Home took some ‘sweet’ inspiration from talented artist Becky, who brought in some fantastic photos to share with us of cakes and sweets that she had seen whilst visiting Italy.

Becky went to Naples for a winter break and in our latest art class we were well and truly inspired by the photographs.

Our ladies and gentlemen began to talk about how wonderful and colourful the sweet treats were whilst looking through the photographs, they were then very keen to paint some of their own cakes and sweets in bright and colourful designs.

Keep a look out everyone, we are looking forward to hanging the finished paintings on our walls!


 

Let's paint spring flowers

We recently held an art session for our ladies and gentlemen who were keen to paint different types of spring flowers.


With the help of Gill, who is one of our wonderful volunteers at Riversway, Monica painted lots of spring flowers for display in her room.


Maurice also enjoyed the creative activity, having a chat with everyone whilst he painted.


This art activity is extremely therapeutic, and we all enjoy it thoroughly.

Rivers View Pub

We brought a pub atmosphere into our home for an afternoon of fun as we set up Rivers View Pub here in our Nursing Home.


With traditional pub games, music, non-alcoholic beer, snacks and lots more, everybody loved getting involved and said they felt a real sense of community.


The activity supported creativity, imagination and reminiscence where people spoke about their visits to public houses over the years.


It was lovely to get positive feedback and we plan on doing this activity again.
