Review of Belmont

My Husband is very immobile and uses a zimmer frame, stick and wheelchair. All the rooms are on the ground floor and the corridors are very wide so wheelchairs are no problem. The respite room is very welcoming. Provision made for personal TV, bed and chair very comfortable and the room is cleaned everyday. A buzzer can be used day and night if needed assistance always come. The meals are excellent and numerous cups of tea served. A shower or bath is used under supervision activities are numerous but no pressure to take part. Medication is carefully monitored. The senior managers are very approachable with relatives if any problem arose.

Review of Belmont

Mum fell and broke her hip just before we were all due to go on holiday. She lives with us and I was very concerned at the prospect of her going into a care home for respite. I went and looked round a few homes and was very impressed with the appearance, cleanliness and friendliness of Belmont. I dropped her off with trepidation and worried all through my holiday. When I went to collect her, she was happy, clean and full of chatter as to all the things that she had done. She stressed the kindness of the staff, quality of food and how pleasant it had been to mix with people of her own age and take part in the activities. She is booked for a stay in August. What more recommendation can I give. Thank you so much!!

Review of Belmont

My husband spent four days in Belmont having giving me a chance to have a short holiday in October. He seemed very happy there and I was told that the staff liked him. My two daughters and grandchildren visited him every day and were impressed by the activities taking place to stimulate the residents. We really could not find fault with anything. It was all excellent.
