Back to nature

Our residents like nothing more than getting back to nature on our regular trips out to enjoy the fresh air.


Recently we headed out to a lovely nature trail not too far from Riversway itself. We saw boats, threw stones in the water and met some friendly dogs on the trail.


The trip was a lovely way to enjoy the peace and quiet, and stillness of the water and picnic area.





A treat for the senses

At Riversway we know the senses play an important role in care, and regularly incorporate this into activities.


So recently we helped residents explore the smell and textures of various sensory items, making play dough from icing sugar, and creating models.


Residents also got the chance to touch soft noodles and compare the textures of different items.


Everyone agreed they'd enjoyed the sensory afternoon and asked for a repeat session ASAP



Two trips, two castles

Recently residents from Riversway visited not one but two castles!


One a pub not too far from Riversway Nursing Home called the Black Castle, was our port of call on a very rainy day and everyone was delighted to report back that the Black Castle has beautiful interiors, a good selection of drinks and tasty grub.


The second, Blaize Castle House Museum, is a treasure trove of wonderful and interesting items which show how people in Bristol used to live.  The castle is set in acres of stunning parkland but due to the rain we spent most of our visit in the house museum looking at old toys and a very old school room.   The rain did however manage to hold off whilst we visited the ice cream van in the park.  Shelby and Doris really enjoyed this part of our day!


The rain may have changed our original planned day out, but in the end we came out winners!

A day at the beach

We’re lucky at Riversway Nursing Home to have some wonderful attractions nearby.


Recently we visited Weston-Super-Mare to enjoy fish and chips and the sights and sounds of the lovely seaside town.


Also on the agenda was buying sweets, feeding seagulls, touching the the sand and enjoying the fresh breeze and sunshine.

Getting creative with clay

A recent activity at Riversway Nursing Home saw residents getting creative with clay.


Different tools were used for the textures needed, and creating different patterns including shells, ropes and stones.


It was a great way to spend some time, and better still the creations made will last and be enjoyed for a long time to come!
