Review of Belamacanda on Wednesday 29 May 2013 by Phillip Y (Resident)

I would recommend this home to anyone. I have been in a N.H.S home and your lucky if you have your own t.v. I wish that we could be more aware that homes of this standard exist. All the times I have had an escort to hospitals and as a amputee all my needs are looked after. I will be more than happy to come back to Belamacanda being a ex service an I recommend this home to any injured soldier.

My daughter has been at Belamacanda for many years now. They have their own freedom as well as good care. It is more like family than a regimented home. I could recommend it to anyone.

I did not hesitate to live here. I came here on respite and I don't want to go home, this is my home. The staff are fantastic. I have never felt so comfortable since I was married. I was in my flat and stuck indoors and now my life has changed since I have been here and I want to stay here.

We are given good choices with our food. I greatly appreciate the choice we are given. I love the pictures around the home. I feel proud to have visitors. I find the staff in general very respectful and they treat me like a person and make me feel at home. I tend to prefer to opt out of activities, but when I do choose to join, the activities are excellent. The staff go out of their way to make activities fun.
