Marta’s Blog – July 2021
Hello everyone and welcome to my latest blog.
I’ll start off with updates regarding Covid as I know everyone likes to be aware of the latest developments and how it affects our residents and staff.
Although we’ve had no further cases at Hill House or Three Corners the general situation in the Torbay area is something which of course affects everyone. With the rise in the new variant cases locally there has been a knock-
As ever, we adapt, and our staff are always willing to do what they can to help. They are dedicated and hard-

Lastly for now, I want to mention something a little left field but very special. I’m sure it will be a surprise to many to know that we have a special relationship with a German Primary School. The children there write to our residents in Three Corners, as well as to our manager. It is so lovely to read their letters and they seem to love hearing about how our elderly residents are getting on many miles away. Always good to see generations connecting as well as our friends from around the world.
