May 2021: Summertime Prep at Derwent


Derwent Newsletter: May Edition

Summertime feels so close, the weather has been lovely lately and our residents have been enjoying doing some gardening again in preparation for Summer. They are also overjoyed that the hairdresser is back at Derwent! Two family members are now allowed to visit which I am sure has put a big smile on your faces just as it has ours.

We have recently revamped our middle floor lounge with new wallpaper and some newaccessories have been added- I know you will all love the new changes to Derwent!

We are revamping our bedrooms at Derwent and slowly but surely all bedrooms will be getting done. We are adding new wallpaper and 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!

Our "EGG"cellent Easter!

We had a fabulous Easter here at Derwent, every resident received a little treat from the Easter bunny and we finished the day off with a delicious afternoon tea!
