Marta’s Blog – March 2021


Hi everyone, and nice to catch up with you again.


There’s a little more cheer in the air now, with, for the first time in ages, some positive news about the covid situation. Our staff have worked tirelessly to help us get through all the transition periods over the last year. What we can do, what we can’t do, etc etc. It has put an extra burden on them, together with the mandatory PPE of course, and I want to thank them all for guiding all our residents through this crisis. It has been especially hard for those who don’t have the capacity to understand the need for all the changes. It’s a real skill to be able to help the most vulnerable get through these challenging times. So well done all, we are proud of you.

All residents have had their first vaccination, and second ones are due by the end of March. That’s real progress, but we are very aware that we must remain cautious and vigilant, and we are not out of the woods yet. Let’s just say we can now begin to see that the glass is half full, rather than half empty. Most of all we are delighted that at long last we can welcome people back into our homes. It means so much and with Mothering Sunday it has come at just the right time.

More generally, we hope to be able to reintroduce some of the activities that have been sorely missed, including our trips out. I know some residents are really looking forward to going out on the bus and we hope to start trips out again at the end of the month.

Outdoor performers, such as ‘Dance in Devon’ came to us recently and it would be lovely if they could come back again. They went down very well with a good half hour of song and dance which many residents at Hill House joined in with. Our residents of course were snug as bugs inside, whilst the performers did their stuff outside, so all could watch on through the window.  One day we might let them back in, when restrictions allow!

At Three Corners we’ve been having some major building work going on to renovate the dining room and sitting room. I’m hoping by the time of my next blog in around a month’s time this should be complete. It’s going to look great and be a lovely environment for our residents. We have a big Easter bonnet and cake competition coming up soon as well, which I’m glad to say I will be judging myself, and we’re all really looking forward to it. We’re also hoping we can stage a summer fete this year, like we used to, restrictions permitting.

Last, but definitely not least, we were especially glad to welcome back the lovely Mowgli. I can’t tell you how much this lovable dog cheers everyone up! Residents have loved seeing him. A big ‘thank you’ woof to you, Mowgli. We missed you!

Catch up with you all again soon, by which time the clocks will have gone forward and spring should be in full bloom.
