Thank you for our blanket donation

January is known for being dark and gloomy, but someone has just brightened up the whole month at Riversway Nursing Home, by anonymously donating these wonderful blankets.


The blankets, which are beautifully designed with bright colours, have been keeping everyone at Riversway Care Home toasty and warm.


Thank you for such a thoughtful donation Emma S?, they are really appreciated and are a beautiful addition to our home.


January treats

During a cold January, we’re focusing on choosing and buying beautiful flowers for the rooms or making cakes to share.


It’s great to treat ourselves, and it’s our New Year’s resolution to carry on this trend throughout 2018! We’d urge everyone reading to do the same – enjoy yourself and help make your environment a brighter place.




Victoria qualifies  

A carer at Riversway Nursing Home is celebrating after completing a healthcare diploma.


Victoria Fosuah, has completed the OCR Level 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care (Adults).


Victoria has worked at Riversway for three years, and currently works evenings and nights. Among her skills she is also an Italian speaker.


We’d all like to say well done to Victoria for her hard work.


Nook turns ninety

Riversway Nursing Home loves celebrating on any occasion with their residents but when Norman, better known as Nook, turned ninety, it was a great excuse to get the balloons and cake out for a party.


To mark this special occasion Nook’s family came along to Riversway to celebrate with him, bringing balloons, food and a beautiful cake which was enjoyed by all!


During Nook’s career he worked for the Great Western Railway for a number of years. Knowing how much this job meant to Nook his family bought him a very sentimental gift which was a picture of a Great Western Railway train.


Working for the railway company was just the start of Nook’s passion for trains. To this day he still has a keen interest in them and reminisces about the great memories he has. Nook says it was the job he loved the most throughout his working life.


The staff at Riversway Nursing Home will be sure to find a great place to hang the picture where Nook can enjoy it.


Good luck for 2018 from Riversway

As another new year rolls in the residents at Riversway Nursing Home in Bristol celebrated with a range of activities from different countries.


Something they really enjoyed was preparing their very own Calennig apple. Calennig is a tradition celebrated in Wales. The word itself means ‘new year celebration, or gift,’ and people decorate apples as part of this tradition as a symbol of luck. The residents decorated their apples with different types of leaves, berries and twigs.


Residents also discussed their ‘first footing’ memories, ate chocolate coins and even, marking a Chinese tradition, picked messages of good luck.


The afternoon was rounded off with a good sing along to Old Lang Syne. The poem was written by Scottish poet Robert Burns and is sang to bid farewell to the year that has passed.


Staff and residents at Riversway would like to wish everyone good luck and a happy new year for 2018.
