Music on our minds at Birch Green

on .

A recent visit saw the ever-popular Mindful Music duet entertain all at Birch Green.


The act, which specialises in music therapy in care homes, made sure there was plenty of singing and dancing as well as fun and laughter – Angie (RGN at Birch Green) and Phil the General Manager really enjoyed joining in.

Cocktail hour at Riversway Nursing Home

on .

At Riversway in Bristol, the sunny weather they’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 their own garden.


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






Lunch is ‘in the bag’ at Springhill Care Home

on .

A new scheme launched at Springhill Care Home in Accrington will see healthy, nutritious lunches supplied for staff and residents attending hospital visits.


The idea was discussed at one of Springhill’s monthly gatherings of a group called Employee Voice, an employee meeting which discusses how the service at Springhill can be continually improved (Employee Voice meetings are held at each of our services).


Volunteers are encouraged to attend from each department to take part in the meeting and share ideas, with proposals are taken to the Springhill Care Group board for further discussion.


The lunch box scheme will now make sure that staff and residents do not need to worry about either money or making sure they have enough to eat when visiting hospital. Often these visits can last a considerable time.


Curtis Bennett, General Manager at Springhill Care Home, said: “This idea is still in its infancy, but we all believe it will be a positive step to support both staff and residents in a practical way.”




Balloons take to the air from Bristol

on .

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


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


They 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 their own celebration they sent some balloons into the sky from the Riversway garden.

Homemade pizzas on the menu at Birch Green Care Home

on .

We cooked up some tasty treats recently as part of a cookery activity at Birch Green Care Home.


Our group sat and made their own pizzas and chose their own toppings, picking from cheddar and mozzarella cheeses with ingredients including ham, mushroom, onions, peppers and pineapple.


The tasty creations were then cooked in time for lunch.


What's your favourite topping?
