Christmas preparations and biscuit making was lots of fun at Riversway

At Riversway Nursing Home, Bristol singing, getting the decorations ready and biscuit making are just a couple of nice fun things to do at this festive and celebratory time of the year!

The Lifestyle team put on a biscuit making session for those who wanted to get involved in doing the tasty treats.

Rolled out the ingredients and made star shaped shortbreads, sprinkled with a little sugar they were delicious, and they all had lots of fun.

Floral festivities get underway at Riversway Nursing Home

on .

A wonderful and festive flower display making workshop was delivered to residents at Riversway Nursing Home Bristol.


They listened to Susan the florist and took tips on how to create the perfect Christmas centre piece.


The workshop was extremely enjoyable and interactive, we smelled the different types of flowers and foliage and contributed to where we thought the pieces would look good.


With golden baubles and a lovely red candle, they decided that we created the perfect Christmassy look.


Everyone who took part in the workshop received a button hole flower arrangement with Ethel and Monica opting for a red coronation.


Everyone enjoyed their time talking about different flowers and the winner of the raffle was Betty who won the centre piece.

Birch Green Care Home quartet commit to nursing skills

The members of staff at Birch Green Care Home, Marie Stitt, Jess Mooney, Stephanie Williams and Tayla Neeley, have all started the Assistant Nurse Practitioners’ course.


Vicky Sudworth, General Manager at Birch Green Care Home, said: “As an organisation, we want to provide the very best quality of care possible and this will help to raise the quality the nursing care we provide.


“We commit a lot of time and resource in the quality of training for our staff at all levels and ultimately that benefits our residents.”


The four employees – all currently team leaders at Birch Green – will undergo the two-year course in nursing care at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).


The Assistant Nurse Practitioners’ qualification was created to help solve a shortage of qualified nurses, designed to give suitably experienced staff in the care industry the chance to develop clinical and managerial skills and provide support for nursing and management teams. The ANP also helps to bridge the gap between traditional healthcare assistants and registered nurses.


The programme follows a curriculum which closely matches the training registered nurses undertake in many areas and gives staff the flexibility – within their range of skills – to assist nurses closely with their work.


Birch Green Care Home is part of the award-winning Springhill Care Group, which also operates homes in Accrington and Bristol.


Recently, inspectors from the industry’s watchdog the Care Quality Commission (CQC) made particular note of the commitment and quality of staff and the training they receive at Birch Green in awarding the home a ‘good’ rating.


All areas of the home were examined, from the safety of the service to how it is led, with inspectors looking at everything from how medicines are stored to the quality of day-to-day activities.
