Review of Belmont Castle Care Home

Top quality Care Home with top quality staff
Firstly Belmont Castle Care Home came highly recommended to our family with regard to respite care for my Aunt. All aspects of care have certainly exceeded our expectations. Coming from a healthcare background both in the acute and primary care sector I have high expectations in all aspects of care and safety in the elderly and cannot recommend Belmont Castle highly enough. All staff are highly trained in the needs of all the different residents who are treated with patience dignity and genuine understanding. They go about their caring duties in a happy and cheerful manner and are extremely helpful. We have been given support and advice from the excellent management team who are very professional and experienced. Belmont Castle is in a wonderful situation with gorgeous grounds and far reaching sea views. This care home is exceptionally clean with excellent food and offers a host of activities for their residents. Well done Belmont Castle.

Review of Belmont Castle Care Home

My father recently stayed at Belmont Castle for 6 weeks respite care. I can't thank Juanita and her team enough for their exceptional care, warmth and kindness. They really have made Belmont Castle a homely environment. My father flourished under their care and his family and friends were made so welcome when visiting. Belmont Castle is a very special place, the standard of care is exemplary, the staff patient, kind and caring. My dad is looking forward to his next stay.

Review of Belmont Castle Care Home

The 85 year old lady - for whom I act as her carer/ advocate/ joint attorney, has recently joined the residents at Belmont Castle due to her increasing frailty in mind and body. It was my pre-retirement professional work, I visited a large number of elderly persons care provisions in Hampshire. This had highlighted the quality and empathy of Belmont, and had made it stand out above most others. At every contact with Belmont I was impressed with the real feeling of a loving, caring, safe community from the Gardner Handyman to the Cleaner; from the Carer to the Entertainer; from the Chef to the Manager, they are all the same with a committed involvement with the people coming first, in doing what is a very demanding role. Therefore because of my relationship with the lady, I was keen to see if she would be able to continue living her life to the full at Belmont. As with most Seniors it is huge step to leave your own home. Thankfully this is where she is now and progressing with the settling in process. To coin the phrase - Belmont Castle is what it says on its [tin] the web site.

Review of Belmont Castle Care Home

Belmont Castle is an outstanding home. My father in law suffers from confusion which had left him very depressed. Now he is living at the Castle he is socialising with others and has regained the twinkle in his eye. His appetite has improved. This is all down to the excellent care and compassion what is shown towards him and all the other people who live there.

Review of Belmont Castle Care Home

Belmont Castle was recommended to us by friends. From our initial telephone contact through arrival and ongoing visits we have been thoroughly impressed by the professional and more importantly, caring attitude displayed by all the staff. The facilities, activities and level of care are outstanding and nothing is too much bother. Mum-in-law was initially there for respite but is now a full time resident. While we were away Belmont made sure we kept abreast of any developments concerning her status and care package. The change in her status was forced on us at short notice and at a difficult time but the Belmont team have been v supportive, helpful and flexible. We cannot praise them enough.

Review of Belmont Castle Care Home

I have been my mother's main carer for many years. Her recent choice to move into residential care has been quite an anxious time for us all as a family. We had looked at a number of homes before visiting Belmont Castle. We walked through the door and were bowled over by this wonderful place. From the warm friendly welcome, to the very high standard of care from the wonderful, well trained, dedicated and caring staff. The home has a relaxed friendly holistic approach towards residents and their families and nothing is too much trouble. I have heard a number of residents remark on how well looked after they are and how happy they are at Belmont. There appears to be a good strong leadership team with a clear vision of providing 'the best of the best' for all at Belmont. It is an outstanding establishment. We count ourselves very fortunate that mum is a resident there, giving us all peace of mind.

Review of Belmont Castle Care Home

I have worked in care for 30 years up until I retired last year. When it came to finding a care home for my mum who has Alzheimer's I was very worried about choosing the right one. Mum stayed for rest bite at the Belmont over Christmas & loved it so much that when it was time to collect her she said she wanted to stay, so when it was time for her to go into care that's where she wanted to live. I'm so glad that was the choose she made because she is very happy there, the atmosphere when you walk in is very friendly & welcoming. The staff are very kind and caring not just towards the residents but also to family & friends that visit, the food is excellent & I have no worries about mums care. It is more like a hotel. I am very glad we found this home & can relax knowing she is being looked after so well.

Review of Belmont Castle Care Home

This is a lovely home, it has a great feeling to it as soon as you walk in the door It doesn't feel like a care home. The carers are both friendly & professional and the manager is so very passionate and proud of this home (which is good to see). My mum has Alzheimers and was placed here a few weeks ago - every member of our family who has visited her at Belmont have contacted me to say what a wonderful place and how lucky she is. I feel the same. The 24 hour kitchen is a breath of fresh air and again takes away the feeling of being a care home but gives freedom and choice. The food is very good too. There is such a lot of space, the rooms are of good sizes. In the grounds there are two ducks in a pen, an aviary and a lovely pond. Plus sensory gardens and residents have a designated area to do their own bit of gardening. Mums only be there for a few weeks but we are so happy that she is there.

Review of Belmont Castle Care Home

My mother was a resident at "the Castle" for twenty months. She suffered from dementia, but from day one she settled completely. Without exception, the care and understanding was first class. She even said "they should advertise this restaurant, as other people would love to use it". From the superb management down, everyone works as a team, their main objective being the unrivalled care and comfort of all the residents. Families are made extremely welcome, it is certainly home from home. Quarterly meetings are held with the families, and these are very informative, including the fantastic explanation and insight into the very complex nature of dementia affecting our loved ones. Sadly mother passed away in August 2012 but my husband and I are still very much involved as "friends" of the Belmont and have input as "people of experience". In our opinion it cannot be faulted, but management is always coming up with new ideas for further improvement.

Review of Belmont Castle Care Home

I can give no greater compliment to the caring staff at the Belmont Castle then to say that if ever I need care this would be where I would be more than happy to spend my latter years. My dear mum of 90 has been at the home just two weeks but has been made to feel so welcome and she is looking better than I have seen her for months. The food is excellent, staff are very kind and make my mum feel very welcome and cared for. There is a great choice of rooms for the residents to use, meal times are flexible and I always feel welcome when I regularly visit mum. I could not have made a better choice and I feel happy now I know mum is safe and really cared for.

Review of Belmont Castle Care Home

My grandad spent the last two years of his life at Belmont Castle, initially he hated the thought of having to go into a care environment but due to deteriorating health he had no other choice. There was lots of laughter and a homely atmosphere and he was extremely happy there. I still keep in touch by visiting regularly and helping out at any of their events. I am always welcomed there along with my children and the dog.

Absolutely unique care home where residents enjoy a new chapter in life. Run with love, compassion and respect for the individual. I am 39 but will gladly go on the waiting list now, for my future care! There is not finer home from home and having experience of visiting elders in other care homes, there really is nowhere like Belmont Castle. Unique, excellent, exemplary.

My mother has been at the home for almost a year now. I visit her about 4 times a week, at all times of the day and have always found the home welcoming, pleasing and caring. It was my Mother's wish to go to the Castle and this has proven to be the perfect place to get the attention, care and love that she needs. I cannot recommend the Castle highly enough.

During the two years my mother has lived in the care home she has been treated very well by the staff. They have been thoughtful and caring when dealing with my mothers needs. The staff show an understanding of her condition and help her cope as well as possible under the circumstances. They are cheerful and friendly and interact well with my mother. She is well fed and opportunities are provided for her to have a more varied daily life if she so wished. Her room is cleaned daily.

I would highly recommend Belmont Castle. My father-in-law was a resident there, when he was unable to cope on his own, and always said he wished he had come earlier as it was like staying in a hotel. The staff were excellent, caring, and would do anything for him. He enjoyed the activities and the food.

Review of Belmont Castle Care Home

I have been feeling very upset following the television news as to how some care homes treat their residents, and some have even died through their treatment. I am sure all relatives of Belmont Castle have been impressed by the way they and their family are treated. All the carers and other members of staff are very helpful and cheerful and all the residents are treated with dignity. Residents on short visits return again for respite if living alone. The gardens and surroundings are lovely and great to visit when the weather permits. I am 94 with 40 years nursing experience. I must admit I found it very difficult to accept when told I needed help, but I am now settled and grateful, feel safe and have no worries. Here we can treat the place as our home, no restrictions. The public must realise all homes are not bad.

Belmont Cast is a welcoming, caring and happy place. The staff vary in attitude and application but for the most part are willing, hardworking and cheerful. The activities organiser does sterling work and there appears to be plenty to do if required. Perhaps entertainers (e.g. choirs) could be invited in. The home and gardens are well kept and inviting. Allowing residents input and acting on it is commendable.
