Aerobics with a difference at Springhill Care Home

on .

A special aerobics session took place recently at Springhill Care Home.

 

Exercise is a vital part of life and one we are keen to encourage.

 

We firmly believe that everyone can take part in some form of light exercise, and recently a session of ‘chair aerobics’ was held in our Milnshaw Lounge.

 

The activity saw residents take part in a number of exercises including enjoying a large, colourful ‘parachute.’

 

This always goes down a treat, and family members also enjoy participating with their loved ones.

Students get close to Riversway life

on .

A group of medical students from the University of Bristol visited Riversway Nursing Home recently to see how a care home works at first hand and to meet some of the residents.

 

They enjoyed a tour of the home, a chat with a number of residents and there was a session of art with local artist Julie during which a number of collages were created.

 

Some of the students were able to help with a spa session and sense stimulation using different objects, while others listened to resident Tony playing various instruments.

 

All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable visit and the students all said how constructive it was and how much they enjoyed it.
