Review of Belmont House

This is a well run home with caring staff and good good suitable for residents. The surroundings are kept in good condition and residents seem very happy. This was my first experience of a care home and I was initially anxious but now feel much more relaxed knowing that my mum is being well cared for. On many of the categories below I was hovering between good and excellent but I feel there is always room for improvement.

Review of Belmont House

I have no reservations in recommending Belmont House. As a purpose built building it has been imaginatively planned with easy access throughout the building. There are attractive seating areas inside and out and the spring garden is a mass of polyanthus and bulbs. The staff are exceptionally caring and efficient, nothing is too much trouble. My husband has nothing but praise for them.

Review of Belmont House

This is an excellent home, the staff are great, doing a hard job. Not only the staff on mum's unit but also in the office - always a smile. It is only a very small but mum is on a 'pureed' diet and it can be boring for her and others.

Review of Belmont House

Dementia is a really nasty condition. Now there is new management the dementia unit has much improved, long may it continue. The staff work hard with very difficult patients. To keep them clean and tidy is a never ending cycle. Some government officials could do with spending some time in a home then they could see what dementia is like. It should be funded by the NHS not the sale of the patients' home.

I never would have wished for my mum to be in a home - but here, my biggest worry is no more. Mum is happy here, and as a family we are so grateful for everything. I feel a part of this little family - the residents, the staff, we all know each other, I tell everyone what a great place it is :-) nothing is too much trouble :-)
