Birthdays at Riverside

Birthdays at Riverside

The last few weeks have seen some of our incredible residents hit some big and exciting milestones in their life. We have all enjoyed the celebrations and eaten far too much cake. For us it is really important that we celebrate every birthday with style and make sure our residents enjoy their special day. All staff members and other residents always try to raise the roof by singing ‘Happy Birthday’ at the top of our voices and of course as tunefully as we possibly can. A birthday celebration truly does wonders at bringing people together and providing positive energy. It also provides us with a plausible excuse to have delicious treats and chocolates.
It is with delight that we are still allowed to invite visitors to Riverside, to share special days with loved ones. It is also wonderful to see residents showered with presents and cards. To see the big smiles on their faces on their birthday is such a lovely thing to witness. We have several more birthdays to come in the coming months, lots more cake to eat and lots more celebrations to enjoy (even with Covid lockdown upon us).

Testimonials

My husband has been in Riverside Nursing Home in Sherborne for five months now. He took a few weeks to settle down in his new surroundings at first but now has got to know the Staff. The Nurses, Carers, the Chef, all have been so kind, respectful, most of all understanding the needs of not only the residents but their families. Only recently we enjoyed an outing to Weymouth organised by the Activities Co-ordinator. Matron Judith Maidment waved us off as our special coach left Riverside. Thank you all
