Art sweet Art

Last week our residents at Riversway Nursing Home took some ‘sweet’ inspiration from talented artist Becky, who brought in some fantastic photos to share with us of cakes and sweets that she had seen whilst visiting Italy.

Becky went to Naples for a winter break and in our latest art class we were well and truly inspired by the photographs.

Our ladies and gentlemen began to talk about how wonderful and colourful the sweet treats were whilst looking through the photographs, they were then very keen to paint some of their own cakes and sweets in bright and colourful designs.

Keep a look out everyone, we are looking forward to hanging the finished paintings on our walls!


 

Let's paint spring flowers

We recently held an art session for our ladies and gentlemen who were keen to paint different types of spring flowers.


With the help of Gill, who is one of our wonderful volunteers at Riversway, Monica painted lots of spring flowers for display in her room.


Maurice also enjoyed the creative activity, having a chat with everyone whilst he painted.


This art activity is extremely therapeutic, and we all enjoy it thoroughly.

Rivers View Pub

We brought a pub atmosphere into our home for an afternoon of fun as we set up Rivers View Pub here in our Nursing Home.


With traditional pub games, music, non-alcoholic beer, snacks and lots more, everybody loved getting involved and said they felt a real sense of community.


The activity supported creativity, imagination and reminiscence where people spoke about their visits to public houses over the years.


It was lovely to get positive feedback and we plan on doing this activity again.

Cake baking goes down a treat

Residents at Riversway Nursing Home started off the New Year baking and creatively decorating cakes with a variety of delicious toppings.


Fairy buns and cupcakes were sprinkled with different kinds of treats, sprinkles, marshmallows and jelly tots, we all thoroughly enjoyed this topic helping to promote creativity and motor skills.


Once they were finished, we all enjoyed eating them equally as much!

Well done to our first golden moment winners

Staff at Springhill Care Group are being given the chance submit their ‘golden moments’ to be entered into an exciting new wellbeing initiative.

As part of the Oomph! Wellness support programme Springhill Care are pleased to have launched this initiative to encourage and share great moments within the care home environment.


The first winners drawn were: Emma (Birch Green Care Home, Skelmersdale), Shannon (Riversway Nursing Home, Bristol) and Neelum & Ruslana (Springhill Care Home, Accrington).


Donna Briggs, Managing Director of the care group, said: “Golden Tickets showcase really special moments that our teams share with residents, which might otherwise not be truly celebrated or recorded, this will help to ensure we capture these special moments and to help acknowledge and praise our staff team.”


The scheme launched in November and staff are being reminded of how they can nominate.


Donna added: “Take note of a golden moment that you have had with a resident or if you have seen a colleague have a golden moment take note and write it on the golden ticket. Put your ticket into the golden post box – all golden moments will be placed in a draw.”


The winner will be selected and given £150 and a certificate.


Matt Hamblin, Senior Business manager at Oomph! Wellness said: "The Golden ticket initiative is a fantastic way to showcase those meaningful interactions that happen in the care home every single day.
“These golden moments should be celebrated and shared with the families and friends of the residents, they are great examples of person-centred activities staff have shared with their loved ones.


“Springhill Care Group have really grasped this concept and made it their own! Congratulations to all the winners."
