Nursery visit for happy residents

Three of our residents headed to Stepping Stone Nursery in Speedwell, Bristol, for a visit.


The trip was the second time we’ve visited the nursery, and our residents Lucy, Betty and Mary very much enjoyed the chance to sing some nursery rhymes.


They even received a present from the children – a colourful necklace made of pasta. It’s great to see our residents interacting with the young children and to see everyone involved get so much from the opportunity.

Representing Riversway

A team of staff from Riversway showcased working life at the home during a local job fair.


The event took place at The Galleries shopping centre in Bristol and included a range of stalls from all types of healthcare providers set up for members of the public to see what is on offer.


Trudy and Deborah had a great day speaking to people about the job opportunities and career pathways at Riversway, and also enjoyed meeting charity representatives looking to place people with learning difficulties in the care sector.


They enjoyed the job fair and believe it’s a great way to get Riversway’s name out there for people to see and to highlight our vision of 'we hope to be the service provider and employer of choice in the communities in which we serve'.


We were even told by the organisers that we had the best, and busiest, stand.


A trip to the Wild Place Project

Riversway residents had a real treat this week when they visited the Wild Place Project, a local wildlife conservation attraction.


They saw a number of animals mainly from African regions – favourites included giraffes and cheetahs. One monkey even put on a show for the residents, showing of his acrobatic skills whilst swinging from a rope in one of the conservation areas.


While the weather was beautiful everyone sat outside and enjoyed a picnic at tables outside the restaurant. It’s a beautiful park and they all enjoyed a lovely day.

Windmill Hill visit brings back memories

A recent visit to the Windmill Hill City Farm in Bristol helped bring back some happy memories for our ladies and gentlemen at Riversway.


A staff team accompanied Eric, Roger and Elfriede to see the animals, feed goats and remember their childhoods.


Many of our residents recall happy times in their childhoods growing up around animals and the visit was a great way to relive these moments.

Maypole and Morris dancing

May has come around so quickly this year but it does mean we can get our dancing shoes on!


At the beginning of May, Riversway Nursing Home celebrated with a traditional May dance session with a Morris dance teacher. The teacher taught us a few moves before sharing a particular favourite with the residents – a seated maypole routine.


Our home was filled with colour, music and laughter while residents danced away. As the dance came to an end there was a real buzz in the air – Our ladies and gentlemen all enjoyed the maypole dancing, some even said it was their favourite type of dance.
