Riversway Nursing Home welcomes work placement students

on .

A group of three students are joining Riversway Nursing Home in Bristol every Monday for their work placement.


The students are with them until early summer, and are proving to be a great help and source of enjoyment for residents and staff alike.


All three, Louise, Helena and Gurdith, are already loving their time at Riversway and the team would like to say a big thank you to them for their hard work.


You can spot them on a Monday wearing a blue t-shirt!





Love is all around us at Riversway Nursing Home

Riversway Nursing Home undertook a small overnight renovation ready for a big Valentine’s day surprise.

As each resident woke in the morning, they received a chocolate treat and a Valentine’s day card from the home. and the home was decorated throughout to set a romantic atmosphere.  They had balloons, roses and lights to set the scene.

Residents and staff all enjoyed the morning reminiscing about love and they shared heartfelt stories with each other. Stories about engagements and first dates came up most frequently!

The afternoon took an exciting turn when the residents watched a magic show in the lounge area, Richard the Magician was amazing....

Bahja coffee morning at Springhill Care Home

Each month Springhill Care Home in Accrington has a get together with the local community. This month the Bahja Initiative joined the home in the Oakhill Lounge.

Mohammed, who works for the charity, and his friends kindly put on a delicious spread of homemade treats for the residents to taste including: pakoras, dates, cucumber, popcorn biscuits and much more.

The residents at Springhill had some quality time with the charity leaders and talked about a variety of topics. Nellie, one of the residents, asked Mohammed about his language and was taught how to say “As-Salaam-Alaikum” – a common greeting in Arabic.

Residents and staff from the home had a fun afternoon laughing and sharing conversation - they can’t wait for the Bahja initiative charity to come back soon.
