Christmas party time for one and all

We all had a wonderful time at our Riversway Christmas party!

Residents, their families and friends and our staff team were treated to festivities galore and we even had a visit from father Christmas who gave out presents in his new secret santa grotto!

The party started with balloon modelling in the morning, followed by a professional face painter creating some lovely body art designs on us.

We had lots of great music to listen to and live entertainment with the one and only Andy T, we were able to sing along and have a jolly old time!

There was plenty of festive food and drink to choose from and we had a giggle with the staff dressed up as santa’s little elves.

The Christmas visit from Noodles (Pet Therapy Dog) wearing a festive bow tie brightened up everyone’s day and there were lots of smiles around.


Well done to Brenda, (Hazel’s daughter) who won the Christmas hamper with lots of goodies and all those who won raffle prizes at the Christmas raffle.

Last but not least, congratulations and a huge THANK YOU to all staff, relatives and volunteers for making our Christmas party at Riversway Nursing Home so special!

Walking in a winter wonderland

Recently we took a trip to the Whitehall Garden Centre to admire the beautiful Christmas displays.

Our residents at Riversway Nursing Home had a good look round the award winning Christmas shops and interacted with the reindeer and all the seasonal displays, they all really enjoyed having a good old browse around and Jeanette said she especially enjoyed looking at the trains and the enlightened villages!

After a trip around all the departments and the garden centre we admired the beautiful decorations once more and felt more Christmassy than ever!

Christmas preparations and biscuit making was lots of fun

Singing, getting the decorations ready and biscuit making are just a couple of nice fun things to do at this festive and celebratory time of the year!

We put on a biscuit making session for those who wanted to get involved in doing the tasty treats.

Rolled out the ingredients and made star shaped shortbreads, sprinkled with a little sugar they were delicious, and we had lots of fun.

Floral festivities get underway at Riversway

A wonderful and festive flower display making workshop was delivered to residents at Riversway Nursing Home.


We listened to Susan the florist and took tips on how to create the perfect Christmas centre piece.


The workshop was extremely enjoyable and interactive, we smelled the different types of flowers and foliage and contributed to where we thought the pieces would look good.


With golden baubles and a lovely red candle, we decided that we created the perfect Christmassy look.


Everyone who took part in the workshop received a button hole flower arrangement with Ethel and Monica opting for a red coronation.


Everyone enjoyed their time talking about different flowers and the winner of the raffle was Betty who won the centre piece.


Dementia Care champions get more training

Our dementia care champions at Riversway Nursing Home recently took part in a training session organised by our dementia friends co-ordinators Jo and Sam.

The dementia friend’s session are to take place every month and will be accessible to our local community.

Jo and Sam highlight topics such as understanding and supporting a person with dementia, as well as the practical impact of dementia and the psychological and emotional impact of the condition.

There’s also important advice given out to carers, enabling them to look after themselves when they are supporting someone with dementia.

These dementia awareness sessions are vital and we will ensure that we receive the most up-to-date training and relevant news to enable us to share with our staff and local community.
