Riversway summer sensory sessions

After a bout of beautiful weather, staff at Riversway Nursing Home decided to take residents back to their days at the seaside.

 

Representing the sea was a paddling pool full of water which residents could dip their toes into after relaxing on the sand from the comfort of their chairs.

 

Along with the sensory session, residents got involved with singing along to sea shantys, which were traditionally sang on board large merchant sailing vessels.

 

Residents had fun sharing their experiences of the seaside and can’t wait for the next sensory sessions to take place.


 

Riversway shakes things up

Riversway Nursing Home residents shook things up as they created delicious cocktails in a mocktail making class.

 

Our ladies and gentlemen dipped their glasses into water and then added sugar to the rims to make them look like traditional cocktails.

 

Once the glasses had been made to look pretty, each resident made a cocktail of their choice using fruits, fruit juice and fizzy pop. Strawberries, mint, lemons and limes were mixed with lemonade and fizzy orange to create a tasty punch.

 

They then enjoyed their nice, cold mocktails while discussing their favourite drinks.

A secret hen ‘bake off’ for Natalia

Natalia, Training and Development Coordinator at Riversway Nursing Home, was delighted when staff threw her a surprise hen party.

 

The hen-do had a special theme which was a ‘bake off’ style party. Natalia had to choose which cake she liked best after staff anonymously placed their tasty creations on a table in the staff room.  

 

Sally, Service Support Manager, won the bake off with a ‘fabulous’ chocolate cake entry after coming up against a mouth-watering lemon drizzle, an appropriate love heart designed cake and some beautifully decorated cupcakes.

 

Congratulations to Natalia and her fiancé Ben for their special day – we wish you all the best for your future together.

A galloping birthday surprise for Jacqueline

A resident from Riversway Nursing Home, Bristol, celebrated her birthday with a visit from a pony.

 

Jacqueline, 87, was surprised by staff at Riversway with the visit by Apollo the Shetland pony, after she shared her passion for horses.

 

Jacqueline has been passionate about horses since she was a youngster and often talks about her riding days with one of her favourite horses Tatatina.

 

Special guests on the day included children from a local nursery, regular visitors to the home thanks to a link between the two organisations, who joined in with Jacqueline’s celebrations.

Riversway felt & gardening workshops

    

 

This week Riversway had a lovely visit from local artist Becky, who conducted a felting workshop with residents.

 

Everyone who took part loved creating patterns and shapes, and residents agreed that it was very therapeutic creating art with the soft coloured wool.

 

Later we had fun with a gardening session which is becoming more and more popular with residents. This focused on aromatic herbs such as Majoran, different types of sage, chives, Moroccan mint, lemon balm and many more.

 

Residents enjoyed discussing their favourite recipes to cook using herbs and reminisced about memories in the garden.

 

The creativity at Riversway never stops.
