July 2021: Scorching Summer at Derwent


Derwent Newsletter: July Edition

What a lovely few weeks we have had! As the weather has been so lovely and sunny, our residents have been enjoying our newly refurbished outdoor area and making the most of sitting on our terrace. A lot more gardening has been done too, with all our residents having loved pulling up their sleeves and helping to pot some beautiful flowers.

We are revamping our bedrooms at Derwent, slowly but surely all bedrooms will be getting done, we are adding wallpaper and new bedspreads-  so each bedroom will feel more unique and homely, we hope you all like them!

We are continuing to have lots of interactions with resident’s families with our online presence and our continuous Facetime and Zoom chats. We would like to say a big thank you to all our resident’s families for your understanding throughout all this and your unwavering support.
