A magical aquarium visit

We recently had a magical day out when we visited Bristol aquarium, looking at the tropical fish, sharks and seahorses.

Our ladies and gentlemen all had a great time, trying to identify all the different kinds of fish.

Hazel was smiling lots, she found the aquarium very fascinating and it was great to see.

Barbra also said that she had a fabulous time and that she enjoyed watching at the stingrays the best.

Over all it was a fantastic day and we're sure we'll be back very soon!

St Patrick’s Day at Riversway

Everyone at Riversway Nursing Home got in the spirit of the occasion for St Patrick’s Day recently.

Flags were flown as we watched a special visitor, who stopped by to teach us some Irish dancing. Lots of fun was had by us all as we watched and even joined in ourselves.

We love an excuse for a celebration at Riversway and thoroughly enjoyed another great event.

Happy Birthday Dexter the cat!

We had a wonderful time celebrating Dexter’s 5th birthday and it was just purrfect!

Staff from kitchen made a lovely sausage breakfast treat and a special tuna cake and we bought him tons of treats, games and a new scratchy stick to claw.

Our ladies and gentlemen made him a lovely bunting full of colourful fishes and mice to brighten up the party.

Dexter is truly loved and is totally essential for us here at Riversway and therapeutic for us as a pet.

He gives us lots of smiles from his cheekiness and cuddles and you can spot him every day, especially in the ground floor.

Welcome to Oakham Treasures

The Riversway lifestyle team recently took Roger on a visit to Oakham Treasures in Bristol where he was able to enjoy a relaxing and enjoyable visit to the award winning attraction.

Oakham Treasures is a family run museum of retail and farming history and a popular place for our residents to visit.  The museum guarantees an amazing and uplifting trip down memory lane.

Nostalgia was definitely in the air when we explored the museum at our leisure.  The museum boasts a huge range of memorabilia in the old grocery store, haberdashery, hardware store, chemist, tobacconist, off licence and sweet shop.

We took a trip to each of the sections within the museum where we viewed and talked about the memorabilia on display including cars and other types of vehicles.

We had a great day and cannot wait to visit Oakham Treasures again.


Say hello to our new team leaders

A trio of staff from Riversway Nursing Home in Bristol have successfully completed their training to become team leaders.


Following an intense period of training sessions delivered by nurses and specialist colleagues at Riversway, along with external training providers, Megan Palmer-Oades, Sian Tucker, and Kiri Krees will now take up their new roles as team leaders.


Trudy Palmer, who helped facilitate some of the learning, said that it had been a very successful few days enjoyed by all involved.


As team leaders the trio are now trained in topics including;


  • medication awareness and competency
  • pressure care
  • observations
  • falls protocol
  • accident/incident forms
  • body language and assertiveness
  • person centred care
  • engagement and care planning


The three also spent time learning more about the ‘Springhill Vision’ - by putting quality first in everything we do for each person we support and for all our staff, Springhill Care Group hopes to be the service provider and employer of choice in the communities we serve, and training like this is a key part of how this is delivered.
