Bristol’s Riversway Nursing Home opened its doors to friends and family recently as it celebrated its 20th anniversary.
The purpose-built nursing home, which offers care for people with a wide range of physical needs, including younger people, has spent two decades at the forefront of quality care in the region, and a series of special activities took place to mark the milestone.
Musical entertainment included an accordion player, singers, an acoustic duet and brass band. A magician also visited to demonstrate some tricks.
Visitors to the Crews Hole Road home included senior staff from Springhill Group, with founder and chairman Ken Nolan giving a speech looking back over 20 years in business.
Residents and staff took part in activities outside and inside the home, throwing sponges at staff members in one particularly popular game.
The home was decorated with garlands for the day and funny photo opportunities were available, with photo slideshows telling the story of Riversway’s history so far.
Jan Wilkins, General Manager, said: “It’s fantastic to see so many people celebrating this milestone in Riversway’s history and enjoying themselves so much.
“Our staff have played such an important role in this success and we can’t thank them enough for their support over the years.
“The care sector has changed so much in 20 years, and we’re looking forward to the next 20 with excitement and enthusiasm.”
