About Derwent Lodge Care Home

Meet Our Care Home Manager

Maria Wedd, Care Home Manager

We are proud to deliver personalised care tailored to each individual and encourage people to have control over their own lives. Having started my career in Health and Social Care as an apprentice, I completed a variety of training courses and soon gained my Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care. I have been a registered manager for 7 years, first in domiciliary care and for the last 3 years in residential and nursing care homes. Thanks to this, I have vast experience in supporting individuals from a variety of backgrounds.

I moved here in 2021, and am proud to work with a dedicated team, enhancing their knowledge of person-centred care. I believe that going the extra mile to be kind and compassionate and supporting people to make their own life choices are the key foundations of great care. Every day at Derwent Lodge is a joy thanks to our brilliant residents, with their wonderful sense of humour and sparkling personalities. I’m also hugely proud of our team, who are innovative, keen to progress and learn and care about each resident as if they were family.

Your Care is Important to Us

The comfort, safety and wellbeing of our residents always come first. With around-the-clock professional care, a qualified nurse on hand 24/7 and a specially trained dementia care team, you can focus on doing the things you love most, while we take care of everything else. Regular visits from friends and family are hugely important for the well-being of the people we support. Loved ones are encouraged to visit often with drinks and snacks available upon request. This allows you to spend quality time together and to make memories by joining in with our activities and events.

In order to provide our residents with the best life, we create care plans that describe the needs and wishes of each resident. Our team will follow this closely to keep them comfortable and encourage them to try new things.
