Remembering Babs

We had a visit recently from Nina, the daughter of popular resident Babs – a resident at Riversway for over 16 years before she sadly passed away.

 

Nina and her husband spent a lovely afternoon at Riversway and they planted a memorial fuchsia plant in our memorial garden, with a lovely plaque featuring a bumble bee that reads;

 

Fuchsia for Babs

with lot's of love

 

This bumble bee symbol has particular significance for Nina as whenever she used to leave messages for her mum, she would draw a bumblebee at the bottom.

 

We look forward to watching the fuchsia blossom, for Babs.

 


 

 

 


 

 

Flowers are arranged and re-arranged

There was a splash of colour around Riversway as the ladies took part in the flower arranging to add a new flower themed look around the home.

 

The ladies took delight in choosing a range of different colours sizes and designs of beautiful colourful bunches of flowers and they all agreed they'd love to do it again.

 


 

Services get animated at Riversway

Faith is very important to many of our residents at Riversway Nursing Home, and every Monday morning we hold a beautiful service for all.

 

Volunteer Mary joins us to pray, sing and play the piano, and recently brought in a number of instruments and scarfs to help residents join in.

 

It was a lovely, popular service with plenty of our residents getting engaged in playing music.

Creating fun with our hands

The rain may come and go at Riversway but the activities just keep on rolling. Although it was a a wet day outside, we stayed dry inside and made two different sensory dough items and modelled them with some tools and our hands. One of them was also smelling mint!

 

People had fun building and making or simply touching - someone also eating - with these soft squiggly materials!

 


 

 


 

Forget-me-Not Café up and running

A new style of café came to Riversway with the first meeting in the Forget-me-Not Cafe, a space for meeting  residents, families and friends to have an informal chat to know each other's a bit better.

 

The group who met also recruited two volunteers and learned more about residents’ childhood and their stories, and the meeting also benefitted from cakes and coffee.

 

The meeting in the café is planned once every month. Don't miss the next cafe meeting on Tuesday 20th June, for further information please contact the home on 0117 955 5758
