A day in the garden, ready for Spring

on .

At Riversway we’re lucky to have a wonderful garden that our residents love spending time in.

 

So recently a group headed outside to seed some potatoes and other vegetables while our very own professional, Roy, cleaned the baskets of weeds.

 

Resident Olive watered the garden’s flowers, and we even had time afterwards to create some Easter decorations.

 

We are all looking forward to watching everything grow and bloom in the forthcoming summer months.

 


 

There's a few photos to date on our Facebook page (click HERE), we will keep the album updated with our progress :) 

 


 

Watercolours and flower delights

on .

Riversway Nursing Home was visited recently by a local Bristol artist, Roland, for a delightful creative activity.

 

Roland led our group in creating pictures of some beautiful classical flowers. Everyone loved using the bright watercolour paints, and spent time chatting about their memories of gardens that they have enjoyed over the years and discussing our spring plans for the gardens at Riversway.

 

A lovely afternoon was had by all  and we're already looking forward to the next art task that Roland sets us.

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

Time for sports and capturing signs of spring

on .

Sports were on the calendar at Riversway recently when residents and staff enjoyed a number of fun sports including bowling, football, human basketball – with our own lifestyle team’s arms acting as the ‘net.’

 

The weather was delightful, so while some of us spent time with the sports, resident Dorothy asked to borrow a camera to photograph the colourful signs of spring.

Crafty fun at Riversway

on .

We find all sorts of ways to create fun craft activities for residents to enjoy here at Riversway.

 

Recently a group gathered to create wonderful rabbits holding candy decorations – all made from recycled materials.

 

Art can be a little messy, and residents and staff even teamed up afterwards to tidy up.

 


 

   

 


 

 

 

Bird houses and bubbles

on .

Residents at Riversway Nursing Home in Bristol had fun recently creating fantastic and colourful bird houses.

 

The decorative houses – made to mark the coming of Spring – were also given their own ‘chicks’ to live in them.

 

Meanwhile, resident Betty visited the activities team office and spent time blowing bubbles for fun.
