Cocktail hour at Riversway

At Riversway, the sunny weather we’ve had recently just had to be accompanied by some refreshing cocktails!


A group of residents and staff settled down to peel, squeeze and chop fresh fruit, accompanied by mint from our own garden.


Pimms and sparkling pear punch were the orders of the day and everyone enjoyed the smell of fresh fruit around the home.





Balloons take to the air from Riversway

Each year the International Balloon Fiesta is held in Bristol, and the event is a firm favourite with residents.


To mark the occasion, we held our own balloon fiesta, with residents making and decorating their own mini balloons from craft materials.


We also watched videos of the balloon festival taking place including scenes from both the daytime and night-time – during the night’s event, the balloons were lit up with different colours in time to music.


To finish our own celebration we sent some balloons into the sky from the Riversway garden.

Water feature donation for Riversway

Bernadette, Gerry and Sally SherwoodVisitors to Riversway Nursing Home can admire a new water feature after a donation was made by the family of former residents.


Sisters Josephine and Lydia O’Keefe were residents at the Bristol home between 2010 and 2012. Afterwards their family made a generous donation to the home.


Recently the courtyard at Riversway underwent landscaping changes, and the water feature bought with the family’s donation was fitted as a permanent feature.


Niece Bernadette Web and nephew, Gerry Ryan visited Riversway to see the new water feature, a visit that coincided with Riversway’s 20th anniversary celebrations.


Bernadette, who travelled from Surrey for the occasion, said: “My aunts had been poorly when they went to live at Riversway, and were naturally a little worried about moving out of their own home.


“Everyone at Riversway were so lovely and helped them to go at their own pace, and as a result they didn’t want to leave!


“They had a lovely room that looked out into the courtyard and it gave them so much joy watching the wildlife and birds that visited.


“When they passed away, as a family we wanted to say thank you for the wonderful care they received and the water feature gives the residents, visitors and staff something to look at and enjoy, in the same area our aunts loved so much.


“They’ve done a great job and from what they’ve said, we’re so pleased that everyone is enjoying it very much.”



Happy birthday Bill!

During a trip out to the picturesque Hanham Lock a group from Riversway helped our resident Bill celebrate his birthday.


During the trip, Bill, who was presented with a lovely cake, also bumped into his sister, and Marianne and Ted enjoyed a glass of red wine watching ducks and boats on the river.
