Derwent Care Home

Low Westwood, NE17 7PL

Now Open: Introducing The Village Shop,
The Apple Tree Cafe & The Orangery Bar

Mariposa Care are incredibly proud to announce the successful completion of their refurbishment project at Derwent Care Home in Low Westwood. All upgrades to the home are now finished, and the highly anticipated Apple Tree Cafe, The Orangery and The Village Shop now open for residents and relatives to enjoy.

Completed in May 2024, these new destinations now provide residents and relatives the opportunity for new daily explorations and social interactions; both of which are essential for physical and emotional well-being.

Enhancing lives & redefining elderly care

With the introduction of the Apple Tree Cafe, The Orangery, and The Village Shop, alongside the launch of new Ally Cares technology, Derwent care home has raised the bar for elderly and specialist dementia care; establishing itself as a leading provider in the Newcastle-upon-Tyne and County Durham areas.

In addition to the new facilities, the project has also enhanced existing areas of the home with Mariposa Care’s exclusive ‘Wellbeing by Design’ interior decor schemes, interactive displays and premium furniture; creating a sleek yet homely living environment for our residents.
Derwent care home is hosting an Open Day on Friday 24th May, where visitors are invited to explore the newly upgraded home for themselves. Open from 1:30pm-4:30pm, join to take a tour of our home and meet our fantastic care staff whilst enjoying complimentary refreshments and live entertainment.

If you would like to take a sneak peek at the additional upgrades to Derwent care home, you can see a selection of exclusive photos on their website.
