Getting creative with clay

on .

A recent activity at Riversway Nursing Home saw residents getting creative with clay.

 

Different tools were used for the textures needed, and creating different patterns including shells, ropes and stones.

 

It was a great way to spend some time, and better still the creations made will last and be enjoyed for a long time to come!

Mac’s day out

on .

Our lifestyle team recently helped our resident Mac enjoy her first day out from Riversway.

 

During a half-day out at a recent weekend, we helped Mac spend time by the river, enjoying cream tea at a café.

 

We made plenty of new friends during our time out, fed pigeons, saw a rowing team practising on the water, picked flowers and found feathers and even cherries.

 

It was a wonderful trip and we hope to help as Mac enjoys more days out.

 


 

Mosaic inspiration

on .

Lentils, pulses and seeds were put to great use recently at Riversway as some of our residents crafted mosaics.

 

The artistic activity saw our group use pictures from old tiles and classical mosaic patterns as inspiration.

 

It required some intense concentration, focus and precision, and we achieved some amazing results.

 

Well done everyone. 

 


  


 

 

A right (Eton) Mess

on .

We love a tasty treat here at Riversway, and a recent activity went down well with residents.

 

Residents and staff pitched in to make the Eton Mess desert, using strawberries, meringue, cream, biscuits and strawberry sauce.

 

It was great fun to make and also to eat afterwards.

 

There was plenty left over so residents Marianne and Sheila kindly offered to take some for other residents to enjoy too.

 


 

Forget-me-not Café up and running

on .

A new style of café came to Riversway at the end of May with the first meeting in the forget-me-not cafe, a space for meeting  residents, families and friends to have an informal chat and to get to know each other a bit better.

 

The group who met, recruited two volunteers and learned more about residents’ childhood and their stories, and the meeting also benefitted from lots cakes and coffee whilst chatting.

 

June's meeting was also very popular (held on Tuesday 20th), our residents chose pictures to go up in our newly decorated corridors that reminded them of happy memories, jobs, food and places - and of course they all enjoyed the cakes and cups of tea and coffee, it was a great way to socialise.

 

Don't miss the next cafe meeting on Tuesday 25th July at 10.30 to 12.00, for further information please contact the home on 0117 955 5758
