Spring is knocking at the door at Riversway

on .

It might be cold outside at Riversway Nursing Home in Bristol, but it’s very much springtime inside thanks to a recent activity.


Residents, family and staff spent time crafting beautiful blooming trees using tissue paper, and making sun-catchers with colourful plastic, they even took photos of the activity through the coloured paper – I’m sure you can guess which photos they took from the ones below!


They were dreaming of the snow whilst crafting, and then as if by magic it started snowing, as if just to remind everyone of which season we were in, winter!


The cold weather didn’t put residents off going for a little walk and they enjoyed the crisp, bright day and finished the walk off with a nice hot cuppa.

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

on .

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....



Birch Green shares some love

Birch Green Care Home, Skelmersdale had a wonderful day celebrating Valentine’s Day.

At breakfast each resident had a surprise waiting for them as they'd all received a very special delivery –a single rose each from a secret admirer.

Angie, a nurse at Birch Green, also had a special delivery of roses from her husband, the bouquet was beautiful.

The afternoon was celebrated in style when the residents had a beautifully presented champagne afternoon tea, they enjoyed an array of delicious cakes, scones and biscuits.

During lunch everyone discussed their Valentine’s Day memories and shared personal stories about their first dates and engagements.


Our residents all agreed that love was definitely in the air.

Bahja coffee morning at Springhill Care Home

on .

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.
