The colours of Autumn

A small group from Riversway Nursing Home took a walk along the river to see the changing colours of Autumn.


The group of two residents and two staff members spent time taking in the colours of the leaves, falling fruits and the chilly air.






Cider making at Riversway

Residents and relatives took part in a refreshing activity recently, making cider and apple juice.


Riversway’s residents enjoyed the process of turning apples into juice, with lots of laughs and lots of mess.


The family of one of our residents, Hazel, helped out with turning the handles of the apple press and holding jugs.


Our group discussed how cider is made in different ways, while enjoying a blueberry pie and tasting different flavours of cider.

Musical therapy at Riversway

A musical therapy session was held recently with residents joined by family members to create some wonderful melodies.


Everyone’s spirits were high during the session, and Toni was in his element as he loves to play the drums.



Pet therapy at Riversway

We were visited by two lovely dogs recently at Riversway for a spot of special ‘pet therapy.’


The furry friends did tricks and played games with us, involving finding tasty treats.


The visit from Paws for Wellbeing was really enjoyed by us all, especially the residents who have owned dogs in the past. Brenda in particular interacted with the dogs and Toni enjoyed playing games and laughing about past memories.
