Rams Legends Roy McFarland and Roger Davies were on hand to open the newest suite at Derby Heights care home on 11th January, providing guests and residents with the chance to meet their footballing heroes and see the new space on offer at the home.
Through the Trust’s Forever Active programme, we work with Derby Heights on a weekly basis to deliver a range of sessions to help the residents remain active and reduce the chance of falls.
The new Kedleston suite will be dedicated to helping those with memory-affecting disorders such as dementia, and will become part of our new Sporting Memories programme which is being launched next month.
Staff and residents alike were pleased to meet the Derby stars, with many bringing past Derby County memorabilia for signatures. Rammie was on hand to help get proceedings underway too.
Roy had previously opened the care home when it was first established two years ago, and it was clear that all the residents and their family members who have visited or stayed their during this time are very much at home at Derby Heights.
Our work with Derby Heights will continue to grow in line with out new programmes for the over 60s, all of which are available to the wider public too. Contact [email protected] for further information on any of our Forever Active sessions.
