Paws for thought with animal therapy at Riversway

Riversway Nursing Home residents got up close and personal with some very special dogs recently.


Riversway hosted another visit from the Paws for Wellbeing organisation, which provides animal-assisted activities and therapy for older people.


Animal therapy is very beneficial and is always popular at Riversway – They have some real animal lovers among their residents and staff.


Everyone loved meeting the dogs and enjoying plenty of cuddles.

Bake Off round two for Springhill Care Centre

on .

Springhill Care Home’s very own Great British Bake Off returned recently with a tasty challenge.


Each floor on the Care Centre was given a tray full of ingredients and a method to whip up some delicious scones with jam and cream.


All the staff and residents teamed up to see who could make the best-tasting scones, and after a long afternoon the judges came to a decision based on taste, texture and presentation.


It was a close call but in the end, Woodlands walked away with the title, while Treetops and Springwood were runners up.


We even had a new twist on the traditional scone, with Mick Glancey, a member of our care team, making a ‘sconut’ in Springwood, which brought a smile to everyone’s faces.




In the pocket at Birch Green Care Home

on .

There’s nothing better on a cold and windy afternoon than having a few games of pool.

Birch Green Care Home, Skelmersdale has some very keen pool players, so they selected their cues and took to the table for a game.

At the end of the afternoon, Royce and Billy were drawing level, and they’ve agreed on a rematch to be held soon.




Springhill Care raises funds for Children in Need

on .

Staff and residents at Springhill Care Home, Accrington teamed up to raise funds for Children in Need recently.

Dressing in pyjamas or ‘spotty’ clothes, they spent time taking part in activities including a tea party in the Milnshaw Lounge and each lounge in the Care Centre.

Later in the afternoon, Managing Director Donna Briggs joined them for a sing-along to ‘Sweet Caroline’ – everyone joined in for a sing and dance, and fun was had by all.

Springhill Care Home are still in the process of collecting the funds, but so far they’ve raised £62. This wouldn’t have been possible without the support of all those who took part, so we’d also like to say a big ‘thankyou.’




‘Trip to India’ for Springhill Care Home residents

on .

As part of our regular ‘Where on Wednesday’ activities, staff and residents at Springhill Care Home recently enjoyed an Indian theme.


Everyone enjoyed a selection of great foods, tasting a tikka masala, korma, poppadoms, naan breads, chutneys, Bombay potatoes, samosas, onion bhajis and pakoras.


These activities are very popular, and judging from the clean plates our ‘trip’ to India was no different!
