We The Curious at Riversway Nursing Home

on .

A wonderful day was had by Riversway's residents and Lifestyle team when they recently visited Bristol’s We The Curious.

On the We The Curious website it reads ‘Our venue on Bristol’s harbourside is a bit like an indoor festival, with all sorts of different experiences, where you can interact with exhibits and take part in experiments.  It’s where boundaries are removed between science, art, people and ideas’ – So after reading this they just knew that they had to visit!

And they were right, everyone had a wonderful day exploring the hands on exhibits and science shows where you are encouraged to be part of everything, to be curious, to look at things, peer closer, touch the exhibits, ask questions and the best bit – be playful!

They even squeezed in time to enjoy an amazing 3D show in the Planetarium, it was fantastic! Before it started they just couldn’t resist taking photos of each other wearing the 3D glasses.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we’re guessing that the next time the lifestyle team ask where do you want to go next, We The Curious will be top of the list!

Crafts at Springhill Care Home

on .

Our ladies and gentlemen at Springhill Care Home Accrington recently enjoyed the Chinese New Year theme of one of their regular craft classes.


These activity sessions are very popular and in this session they made some creative bookmarks with lots of colours and different designs.


The craft making activities can be very relaxing when residents and the lifestyle team gather together and let their creativity run free, they are also a great opportunity to have a chat and a cuppa together.


Everyone agreed it’s very therapeutic!



We’re back! Children return to Birch Green Care Home

on .

Excited smiles lit up the faces of residents when the children from St James’ Primary School returned back to Birch Green Care Home.

Following their previous visit, a friendship has formed between residents and the schoolchildren who couldn’t wait to get back to see everyone.  

Heidi made a card for Vincent which read ‘you are a good singer’ and he couldn’t have been happier to receive it.  

Gill Seddon, Activities co-ordinator at Birch Green, said: “We had another fun filled day with the children and they greeted us, saying: ‘we’re back’. They ran in so excited to see everyone. 

“It’s such a therapeutic and beneficial experience for everyone involved. The children and the residents thoroughly enjoy themselves and are all tired out once the visit is over.”   

Year One teacher, Shelley Lee, said: “We made cards together in readiness for give a friend a card day next week and Heidi wanted to make one for Vincent as she loves his singing and for Mo because she makes her laugh with her glove puppet.”

Where on a Wednesday at Springhill Care Home

on .

A popular activity “Where on Wednesday” at Springhill Care Home Accrington took residents to China this week, which was in-keeping with all their recent Chinese New Year craft activities.
Everyone enjoyed a taste of Chinese cuisine and they had a great selection to try out, including prawn crackers, plum sauce and spring rolls, they also had Chinese music playing with handmade decorations on display.
A lovely time was had by all as everyone looked on the Ipad at lots of  places and interesting things in China such as the Tearracotta Army and a collection of sculptures discovered in 1974 in Lintong District, Xi'an, People's Republic of China and Shaanxi province.
Now where on Wednesday will they be next week!
