Caring Heroes wear badges with pride

on .

‘Caring Heroes’ at Springhill Care Group will be easy to recognise thanks to new badges introduced as part of the national campaign.

 

The initiative was launched to highlight the unsung heroes of social care, who often go the extra mile to support elderly and vulnerable people.

 

The campaign won the backing of industry leaders including Martin Green, chief executive of Care England and Alex Ramamurthy, CEO of the Care Workers Charity, along with members of Parliament.

 

As part of Caring Heroes, the work of staff members across Springhill Care Group’s homes in Accrington, Skelmersdale and Bristol has been honoured, along with family members and volunteers who have supported residents at the home.

 

Now Springhill has introduced metal pin badges which will be presented to everyone named a Caring Hero, featuring the group logo and the social media hashtag #caringheroes.

 

Donna Briggs, Managing Director of Springhill Care Group, travelled to Riversway Care Home in Bristol recently to present the first badges.

 

She said: “The Caring Heroes campaign has been a great way to highlight the work being done, day-in day-out by care workers and volunteers up and down the country.

 

“These badges are an extra way for us to say thank-you to these often unsung heroes for their dedication and commitment to improving the lives of the people who live in our homes, and we know they will be worn with pride.”


 

 

 

The colours of Autumn

A small group from Riversway Nursing Home took a walk along the river to see the changing colours of Autumn.

 

The group of two residents and two staff members spent time taking in the colours of the leaves, falling fruits and the chilly air.

 


 

 


 

 

Cider making at Riversway

on .

Residents and relatives took part in a refreshing activity recently, making cider and apple juice.

 

Riversway’s residents enjoyed the process of turning apples into juice, with lots of laughs and lots of mess.

 

The family of one of our residents, Hazel, helped out with turning the handles of the apple press and holding jugs.

 

Our group discussed how cider is made in different ways, while enjoying a blueberry pie and tasting different flavours of cider.

Musical therapy at Riversway

A musical therapy session was held recently with residents joined by family members to create some wonderful melodies.

 

Everyone’s spirits were high during the session, and Toni was in his element as he loves to play the drums.

 


 

Pet therapy at Riversway

on .

We were visited by two lovely dogs recently at Riversway for a spot of special ‘pet therapy.’

 

The furry friends did tricks and played games with us, involving finding tasty treats.

 

The visit from Paws for Wellbeing was really enjoyed by us all, especially the residents who have owned dogs in the past. Brenda in particular interacted with the dogs and Toni enjoyed playing games and laughing about past memories.
