“Our residents describe living at Belmore Lodge as feeling like ‘they are being wrapped in a hug’ as all the staff are so friendly and caring.” – Janie Wilkins, Home Manager
The residents and staff of Belmore Lodge are a family, making memories with each other every day. We are living life to our full capabilities, with positivity, empathy, compassion and respect.
Our care teams assist with all aspects of daily living for our residents, from personal care to taking regular medications, working flexibly to promote independence providing support to maintain the physical care and comfort of residents.
Belmore Lodge’s nurses are available for all residents, at all times. We believe that’s the bedrock of a safe and happy home, providing nurse-led care to manage complex medical conditions, whilst ensuring all residents can stay within their familiar and comfortable home setting should their care needs change.
Our residential care service is designed to provide a comfortable and relaxed home environment where home maintenance, laundry, cooking and housekeeping are taken care of on your behalf.
Short Stay & Respite
We offer the same high quality care services enjoyed by our long-term residents on a short-term basis. Whether it’s for a short period of recovery, a respite break or simply a trial run for those looking for a permanent move, we offer a home from home where residents can live their life, their way.
Although Belmore Lodge is not a dementia home, we are committed to supporting our residents to live meaningful and fulfilled lives, and that includes those living with the earlier stages of dementia or cognitive impairment.
End Of Life
We want people to live well with us, making the most of every single day. If that means being together until the end of life, we want our residents to die well with dignity with family around, in familiar surroundings with staff they know well.
We aim to make every day worth writing about, and enjoy keeping loved ones up to date with what’s going on within Belmore Lodge. Here are some of our residents’ recent highlights.
” To Janie, Alison, Lesley, Sharon, Rani, Pierre, Edita, Daniela, Kelly and all the lovely staff at Belmore Lodge. Thank you for the love and care you showed mum over the years she was at Belmore Lodge. I cannot thank you enough for everything which you did. I always felt comfortable that mum was not only in the best caring hands but also that she was loved. I’ll never forget your kindness.”
“Thank you to everyone for your wonderful care of my mum throughout her year of residency with you. We will always fondly remember our ‘wedding day’ as a time of so much joy, especially for mum. She was so happy and we will always be grateful for the huge amount of work from Janie, her staff and residents that made the day so special. Thank you also for the understand and difficult handling of our ‘challenging family dynamics’. Special mentions for Edita, Daniella, Kelly, Mariza and Jesmi for there exceptional professionalism and compassion in her final days. To the companion team who kept her company on the few days we were unable to visit. To Pierre, Stephen and Julian who quickly became her favourites. There are too many names to mention, however every role and Belmore Lodge was very much appreciated by mum and by us.”
“I am writing to thank you and everyone at Belmore Lodge for your generous donation of £91.04 to Oakhaven Hospice raised at your Oaktober event. Thank you for your valued support.”
“To all the staff at Belmore Lodge, with our grateful thanks for the love and care you have shown to my dear husband over the past 2 years and also for the friendships that you have given to myself and our family over the same period.”
“To all the staff at Belmore, our heartfelt thanks for the lovely way you care for and supported her for all these years.”
“The atmosphere is friendly and makes me feel at home – it almost feels like it’s a 5-star hotel! Cleanliness is very important to me and it’s always clean – and the laundry service is very good as well. My original perception of care homes has completely changed since I’ve been at Belmore – it is now completely positive. My quality of life has improved immensely, and I feel more relaxed and patient.”
