Cheese on the menu at Riversway

Riversway’s talented chef, Simon, offered to help us arrange a cheese tasting session for residents.


We served up tasty treats from countries including the UK and France, and of course some wine as the perfect accompaniment.


The activity went down very well with everyone and there were clean plates all round afterwards.



Bonding through massage therapy


A recent therapy session saw one of our residents, Dennis, enjoy a sensory session that enabled him to spend quality relaxation time with his wife.


The activity involved a number of residents who enjoyed the therapy session which included massage, relaxation and rejuvenating mud masks.


Dennis’ wife joined us for the activity and connected with her husband through a gentle massage – a nice moment for us all to remind everyone that families can have a real healing effect.


We all enjoyed seeing the faces of the residents as they enjoyed the sessions




Time on the river

A group of Riversway Nusing Home residents took part in a special activity which saw them take a trip on the river.

Residents including Roy, Nook, Jakki, Maude, Joan and Mac donned life jackets for the trip, arranged through local watersports specialists All Aboard, based at Bristol Marina.

It was a special day for everyone but in particular Maude who in her younger days had her own boat and used to make the same trip our group did.

The trip brought back some strong memories for everyone and we’d like to thank All Aboard for their support for this trip from beginning to end.

The trip was made possible thanks to the residents fund and donations from family members. This is a really important source of income for Riversway and helps us to arrange special trips like this one and we are grateful for all donations.

Bringing the seaside to Riversway

A group at Riversway spent time creating their own images of the seaside.


The crafty collages were created with real shells and sand, and everyone loved taking part.


Now the beautiful pieces of artwork are decorating the home where they can be enjoyed by everyone.






Our Forget Me Not Cafe is buzzing

Residents and family members spent time at Riversway’s special Forget Me Not Café recently.


It’s always a lovely occasion, and each month we are getting more people visiting to chat and taste the lovely cakes on offer.


There were many activities available too, for all interests.


The next session is on September 29, and we hope to see even more people there. For more information just ask a member of staff.
