Trip to the museum  

A recent trip saw a group from Riversway Nursing Home head to Bristol Museum and Art Gallery.

 

Our residents had so much fun, enjoying seeing the exhibits including impressive paintings.

 

We also made time for a hot drink and plenty of cakes. Monica, Leone and Pamela said that they'd had a wonderful time.


 

Jacqueline’s washing line wish

A member of the local community helped one of our residents’ wish come true recently.

 

Jacqueline had taken part in The Bristol Wishing Washing Line project, which sees residents of care homes hang their wishes on a special line in a local supermarket.

 

People in the community can read the wishes and help to make them come true.

 

Jacqueline’s wish was to go out to a café, and local resident Simon, who works as a health and safety manager for Co-Op, decided to come and make it happen.

 

Simon offered us a treat of cake and tea, and on the way back met up with Emma who was visiting Riversway with a box for everyone to add their wishes into.

 


Some of these wishes will be for use within Riversway, and some will be added to the Wishing Washing Lines in the community.


 

Dance therapy

We all enjoyed taking part in a recent Dance Therapy session here at Riversway.

 

Lottie came to visit and helped us to dance and sing along, learning new routines and enjoying the gentle exercise with balloons.

 

It was great to watch Lottie dance to some classical music too.

Enjoying the ‘magic table’

We love incorporating technology into our activities at Riversay and recently got to try out the ‘magic table.’

 

This device projects images onto a table which can then be interacted with, and we have great fun playing a number of games.

 

Everyone was very interested to see it in action, and loved what it could offer, from a football game to interactive autumn leaves.

Dancing round the Maypole

Riversway residents were treated to a demonstration of traditional dancing recently.

 

Local dancer Polly came to visit and brought a Maypole with her, to the delight of our residents.

 

She gave a lovely demonstration of this traditional dance involving plenty of colourful ribbons, and even got some of our residents involved too.
