On Friday our lovely residents decided that they wanted to visit Matlock in Derbyshire. We enjoyed a steady stroll along the river taking in both the views and fresh air before stopping off for our favourite of fish and chips. We all had a fantastic day and made many memories.

Gilby House in Winterton

We received this outstanding review on! A massive well done to the incredible staff team 👏👏
“I have been having a fantastic time at Gilby House Nursing Home.
The services available have really improved. I am getting out more often, which makes my mental health feel better.
I wouldn’t say I am 100% yet, but I am getting there.”

Riversway in Bristol

With the upcoming celebrations of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, we took around lots of different pictures of the queen and of the past jubilee celebrations to all our residents so that we could reminisce and have lots of lovely chats together. Lilly celebrated her 86th Birthday on 25th May. We decorated her room with balloons and banners to celebrate the occasion. She loved her card and flowers from Riversway and we sang a few church hymns to Lilly which she says she really enjoyed!

We have been preparing some more in the home for the Jubliee next weekend with some more wonderful pictures!
