Martha is our star pupil

Staff member Martha Jargiell joined the Riversway team in April 2014.

Since then, she has flourished in her role as a catering assistant and has now completed an NVQ level 2 qualification in catering.

This means she has increased her knowledge in relation to food preparation, hygiene and health and safety.

Martha is a committed, hard-working, popular member of staff, with an enthusiastic approach to tasks and can always be found with a smile on her face.

Well done on your achievement Martha, keep up the great work.

Care Home Open Day 2015

Riversway Nursing Home opened its doors to the public recently as we celebrated national Care Home Open Day.

We were just one of thousands of homes up and down the country to take part by holding an open day. To mark the occasion we received a visit from popular local musician Danny Stowmasters who kept us entertained with his singing and piano playing.

National Care Home Open Day is a UK-wide initiative to show members of the public what really goes on in a care home.

We all really enjoyed the chance to showcase great care and let everyone know what Riversway is all about.

Care home opens its doors to the public

Riversway residents and staff are all very much looking forward to Friday June 19, which is National Care Home Open Day.

We’re opening our doors and inviting members of the public to join us for a day of fun filled activities, which is also a chance to find out what Riversway Nursing Home is all about.  

There will be a gift stall, musical entertainment, an afternoon barbecue, a quiz and much more, all to be enjoyed with tasty refreshments and cakes in true Riversway style.

A flourishing garden at Riversway

Residents and staff at Riversway recently spent time re-potting flowers which were planted a few weeks ago.

We already have so many flowers, herbs and vegetables growing, and we’ve all been working hard to keep on top of it all.

The residents have thoroughly enjoyed getting their hands dirty and working together to make the garden beautiful. Betty in particular was such a hard worker, getting so much done, reliving memories of her garden at home.

Dementia Awareness Week at Riversway Care

This week is Dementia Awareness Week, and we have lots going on around the home as usual, including a trip out to the Trinity Centre in Bristol to attend a dance celebration for people with dementia. 

At Riversway Care Home, we have a person-centred approach to care, with specialist services and facilities that are designed to support those whose lives are affected by dementia. We have a dedicated bedroom suite with trained support staff to care for residents with the condition.  

There’s also a hub to share knowledge and expertise in dementia care, designed to support friends and family of residents.

Residents can enjoy the benefits of a whole range of activities designed to stimulate positive memories, such as our arts and craft afternoons, days out, parties, musical therapy and holistic treatments.


*Dementia is caused when the brain is damaged by diseases such as Alzheimer’s or a series of strokes. Symptoms may include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, speech and problem-solving. There are currently 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, a figure which is expected to rise to more than a million by the year 2021.
