Our home has regular access to one of our four modern and well-equipped minibuses. The professional drivers liaise with the Companionship Team and residents to understand their preferences and provide access through half-day or full-day trips, getting out and about to enjoy the local sights, often taking packed-lunches, snacks, hot coffee and tea.
Getting out and about is a necessity for us all, both in terms of mental and physical health.
Popular with many residents, our home offers regular minibus outings into the surrounding area where a variety of trips are organised by our Companionship Team, providing the opportunity to visit and explore new places.
These trips are a great chance to get out and enjoy some of the wonderful places that the local area has to offer.
Minibus trips are a great way to connect with fellow residents, building friendships over shared experiences and adventures.
Whether it’s a trip to the local pub, a visit to the seaside for fish and chips, or a day out taking in a majestic cathedral, connection to life outside the home is a vital part of day-to-day life for our residents.
“The Belmore minibus excursions are a real treat. Even a simple trip around the forest meant so much to my grandfather.” – Nath A, Grandson of resident at Belmore Lodge

Hobbies & Interests
We understand that staying physically and mentally active can have a profound effect on our wellbeing. Our home has a dedicated Companionship Team whose role within the home is to plan, organise and deliver an exciting and engaging programme of activities specifically tailored to the wishes of residents be that in large groups, small groups or simply one on one time.
Music & Arts
Music and the arts play an important and powerful part in all our lives. Whether it be through music, movement, storytelling, singing, drama, reading or writing poetry, our home offers each resident the opportunity to explore the many ways in which music and creative arts can enrich their wellbeing.
The gardens at Belmore Lodge are a cherished space that is enjoyed by many throughout the year. Whether you prefer to sit and relax in the tea house while taking in the stunning views of the perennial borders or you’re eager to lend a hand to our skilled gardener in the raised beds, there’s something for everyone here.
Housekeeping & Maintenance
We take care of the daily housekeeping and maintenance responsibilities so our residents don’t have to. Feeling warm and safe in our homes and having peace of mind are just two of the benefits our residents enjoy from the personally tailored care we provide.
