Candles and cake for Betty

Recent activities at Riversway Nursing Home in Bristol included celebrating the birthday of one of our residents.


Betty was presented with a special cake for the occasion – her 89th birthday – and we all got into the spirit of the occasion to help her celebrate.


Betty even wore a colourful party hat while she blew out her candles. Happy birthday Betty!



Down by the river

Two of our residents, Barbara and George, took a trip down to the river recently to feed the pigeons.


We very much enjoyed the stroll along the pretty riverside walk, and all the animals we spotted reminded George of time he spent growing up on a farm surrounded by nature.


The pigeons were very excited to see us too, and we were soon surrounded by the birds.












Entertainment and new friends

Recently Riversway had a day of entertainment, with a little something for everyone.


The occasion featured lots of poetry, balloons, jigsaws, quizzes and songs with entertainers. Our two newest residents bonded as they solved three jigsaws together.


This shows why we believe that activities are so important to life at Riversway, helping people to relax, have fun and make new friends.



Memories of wartime Bristol

Residents at Riversway Nursing Home relived memories of The Blitz recently to help an upcoming BBC TV show.


A producer from a production company stopped by to speak to residents about their memories of wartime Bristol and how life was during the turbulent time in the city’s history.


The company is planning a BBC social history series about The Blitz, which will focus on Bristol and how The Blitz affected life for the families caught up in life-changing moments.


The producer seemed very happy with what she had gathered as research for the show, and we are even expecting a return visit.







International Women’s Day at Riversway

Riversway Nursing Home in Bristol marked International Women’s Day recently by reminiscing about great women through history.


Residents particularly enjoyed discussing fighters for democracy and ambassadors of peace, and talked about how much tougher it was to be a woman in the 1950s.


The day also included a quiz, games and was finished by singing RESPECT by Aretha Franklin, and other famous tunes.


Everyone had a wonderful time, and we all enjoyed finishing the day off with a group sing-a-long.
