Our Home

Belmore Lodge is a calm home full of creativity, located in the sought-after quayside town of Lymington. The spirit of the great Arts and Crafts designer William Morris inspired the home, and just as the Arts and Crafts movement was a bringing together of the traditional and modern, the home harbours innovative facilities alongside classic wooden finishes. 

The home is part of Colten Care, an independent and family-run company determined to set the highest standards in all aspects of care for the elderly. With our simple, all-inclusive pricing structure, there are no hidden extras or non-refundable deposits.

Strictly Come Tea Dance for Children in Need

At our Strictly Come Tea Dance, Colten Care managed to raise an incredible £5000! We want to say a big ‘Thank you’ to all of those who participated and contributed to this amazing cause. Our residents had great fun strutting their stuff on the dance floor. We were joined by Lymington’s Mayor Anne Corbridge, and the voice of Alan Didcot!

Caribbean BBQ at Belmore Lodge Jul 30, 2019
  • Belmore Lodge

caribbean BLA fabulous day of all things Caribbean. Our menu choice was mouth-watering: Lamb and Mint Burgers, Southern Fried Chicken, Caramelised Chipolatas, Spare Ribs, Roasted New Potatoes and a variety of salads, and then Pudding – an absolutely delicious Pavlova with Caramelised Pineapple and Honey, topped with Strawberries and Chocolate, served with a caramel sauce. The afternoon continued with residents enjoying making mocktails – the favourite being a Pina Colada with coconut crisps. The event was particularly enjoyed by one of our residents, Jim Giles who spent a lot of time in Jamaica.

Our Garden

We pride ourselves on our beautiful and stimulating gardens. We recognise that many of our residents had such gardens themselves, and that gardening may have been a special pastime for them. We like to think that we can offer residents the opportunity to continue that pastime in whatever way they feel appropriate.

Our Partnership with New Forest Hospital Radio

Our partnership with New Forest Hospital Radio allows our residents to have their own regular radio request show.

'Request Collectors' will visit the home on the first Wednesday of every month. Then, using flash drives, we will download the specially-produced show onto portable, rechargeable stereo sets designed for ease of use for older people, ready for the residents to listen to at their leisure in the lounges or in the comfort of their own bedrooms.

Caring Without Plastic

Colten Care has become the first major provider in the UK's private care home sector to begin a group-wide reduction of single-use plastic. This is a significant move given the care sector's traditionally high use of plastic in clinical services, person-centred care and infection control.

Here at Belmore Lodge, not only are we supporting all of the central initiatives, but we are also working closely with residents and relatives to seek other ways our home can reduce our consumption of plastic. If you have any ideas or suggestions which could help us in our plastic-free drive, please do get in touch.
