Picking berries

Riversway Nursing Home stands a stone’s throw from the banks of the River Avon, a location that brings us many benefits.


We often take a walk along the river, and recently took to its banks to fill boxes with the ripe berries that grow alongside it.


Our group of residents and staff picked a large box full, and ate a lot along the way. During our outing we enjoyed meeting a mum and her children, and waving to people passing on boats.


It was a great trip and a fantastic way to enjoy a warm day after a wet and cold week.

Remembering Elvis

We have many music fans at Riversway, and recently to mark the anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death we wanted to do something special.


To mark the occasion, we remembered the King of rock ‘n’ roll with a singalong and by watching some of his most famous movies including Jailhouse Rock.


A number of posters were also produced for the occasion, and one of our residents even let us borrow a statue of the singer.

Time for herbal tea at Riversway

A group at Riversway Nursing Home spent time experimenting with different recipes for herbal teas.


The session saw residents and staff peeling lavender, crushing fennel seeds, and mixing ingredients including chamomile, rose petals, liquorice roots, fresh mint leaves, sage and elderflower.


Residents could choose and make their own blends with three effects – soothing, energising and digestive health and then they all enjoyed sampling the refreshing variations of their herbal tea.






Cocktail hour at Riversway

At Riversway, the sunny weather we’ve had recently just had to be accompanied by some refreshing cocktails!


A group of residents and staff settled down to peel, squeeze and chop fresh fruit, accompanied by mint from our own garden.


Pimms and sparkling pear punch were the orders of the day and everyone enjoyed the smell of fresh fruit around the home.
