Our own Super Cody

Riversway’s own superhero, Cody, spent time with us recently to help out with a number of activities.


During a cold day in Bristol, our residents and activity team spent time cutting old cards to recycle and create other projects, drawing, making jigsaws and enjoying playing with sensory ‘kinetic slime.’


Cody, the son of our member of staff Kristy, visited as it was the school holidays, and gave us a hand with many projects especially laminating copies of an old scrap book made in the 1940s by our resident, Roger, that we use to decorate the home.


Of course, there were plenty of games to play and fun to be had.


We’d also like to mention the help and support from carers and other departments within Riversway who started to bake some tasty treats with the bread maker. Someone also brought in lots of treats, and others spent time decorating.

Annual trip to Bristol Aquarium

A group from Riversway Nursing Home recently took an annual trip to Bristol Aquarium.


This was a first for new residents Elfrieda and June who were accompanied by their new friend Monica.


There was lots to see as Bristol Aquarium houses over 1,000 aquatic creatures including tropical sharks, rays, seahorses and piranhas.


During the visit the aquarium put on a demonstration and helped the residents to feed the tropical fish.


Last year, when Riverway Nursing Home visited the popular aquarium, the residents were disappointed not to see the octopus as he was playing hide and seek. Luckily when the residents arrived this year the octopus had come out of his hiding place to say hello.


Riversway Nursing Home is already looking forward to visiting again next year!

Burns night celebrations

Residents from Riversway Care Home in Bristol celebrated Burns night in style, in the afternoon.


Burns night is celebrated predominantly in Scotland on January 25 each year and commemorates the life and work of poet Robert Burns.


The residents joined in with Scottish poems, chatted about the Loch Ness monster and enjoyed themed cheese and biscuits.


Everyone had a great afternoon!


Bristol rocks

At Riversway we love a chance to get involved with the local community.


So we couldn’t wait to get stuck into the Bristol Rocks ‘phenomenon’ – a craze which has seen brightly painted or decorated rocks and pebbles left around the city’s streets, parks, playgrounds and car parks.


According to the local news, the craze is being welcomed by parents as a chance for children to get creative and away from their TVs and games consoles.


It is such a lovely idea we couldn’t wait to get stuck in at Riversway. So we’ve begun to contribute and to paint lots of rocks in preparation for leaving them around the city in Spring Time.


Bowling fun for Riversway

Last week residents and their family members, along with our activity team, headed to the bowling in Bristol for some fun.


George Royston, Roger Hazel and family, plus our activity team with Lisa the team leader, headed to Tenpin in Bristol for a great afternoon which included a tasty burger.


We all look forward to visiting again soon!
