March 2021: Feeling Bright at Derwent

04/03/2021

Derwent Newsletter: March Edition

We’re sure you’ll agree that 2021 is looking better by the day. With the government’s recent announcement of staggering the lifting of the lockdown I am sure we can all agree it has been a long time coming and finally feels like there is light at the end of the tunnel. This time next year this will all hopefully be just a distant memory and our lives can once again be filled with visiting, cuddling and kissing our loved ones.

We are revamping our bedrooms at Derwent, slowly but surely all bedrooms will be getting a refresh with new wallpaper and new bedspreads, so bedrooms feel more unique and individual, 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.

What a "flipping" great Pancake Day!

We had such fun here at Derwent for Pancake Day! Our residents loved getting involved and having a go at tossing their pancakes in the air – and of course eating them with some delicious toppings!
