Baking a tasty treat at Riversway

on .

Recently a group of Riversway Nursing Home residents got together to bake a lovely lemon and orange drizzle cake.


Everyone who took part had a specific job to do and played an important part in producing the tasty treat. This included measuring out ingredients and mixing.


Afterwards they all sat down and enjoyed a piece of the creation.

Up and Active at Springhill Care Home

on .

Residents at Springhill Care Home in Accrington will help transform their garden in coming months thanks to a series of gardening sessions.


Delivered by the Up and Active team from Hyndburn Leisure, the plan is to plant wild flower seeds and help them grow to make Springhill’s outside areas even more beautiful. Plans are also in place to grow some vegetables.


Ian from Up and Active led the first session, which took place indoors thanks to poor weather. Residents learnt about how to grow potatoes, with Ian using pine cones as a substitute for the vegetables!


Everyone had lots of fun and Ian even came equipped with a ukulele to lead a good sing-song. The next session will take place on May 28th, and hopefully the weather will stay fine so everyone can enjoy some time outside.



Trip to Bristol museum  

on .

A recent trip saw a group from Riversway Nursing Home head to Bristol Museum and Art Gallery.


The lifestyle team and Riversway residents had so much fun, enjoying seeing the exhibits including impressive paintings.


They also made time for a hot drink and plenty of cakes. Monica, Leone and Pamela said that they'd had a wonderful time.


Sewing Club at Springhill Care Home

on .

Springhill Care Home’s popular sewing club met recently.


The club is a great chance for people to socialise while being creative and learning new skills, and one of their residents has been working hard on a cushion cover with a little help from a friend who visits each week.


Once complete, the cover will be added to her wheelchair and this is a great example of putting skills to good use while having a great time!



Jacqueline’s washing line wish at Riversway

on .

A member of the local community in Bristol helped one of Riversway Nursing Home resident's wish come true recently.


Jacqueline had taken part in The Wishing Washing Line project, which sees residents of Bristol care homes hang their wishes on a special line in a local supermarket.


People in the community can read the wishes and help to make them come true.


Jacqueline’s wish was to go out to a café, and local resident Simon, who works as a health and safety manager for Co-Op, decided to come and make it happen.


Simon offered them a treat of cake and tea, and on the way back met up with Emma who was visiting Riversway with a box for everyone to add their wishes into.


Some of these wishes will be for use within Riversway Nursing Home, and some will be added to the Wish Washing Lines in the community.
