"Welcome to our community where we will assist you to continue caring for your loved one. Your participation is welcomed."
Belmont is a family-oriented home. We welcome loved ones to visit at any time and become involved through regular relatives meetings, or by talking with our Director of Nursing at any time.
Our home is bright and spacious and includes activity areas and quiet rooms where visitors can enjoy a chat and a cup of tea, and well-kept outdoor areas and gardens to enjoy warm, sunny days.
For your peace of mind, we provide 24-hour care by registered nurses who are supported by a dedicated team of enrolled nurses and personal carers. We have the expertise to assist with complex care requirements, and will always discuss your care with you and your family.
Belmont has been fully accredited by the Australian Government in recognition of our very high standards of care and services, meeting all 44 of the expected outcomes.
Staying active and socialising is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Our activity program changes each month, but will always include bus trips and outings, arts and crafts, movie days and theme days. We have a number of volunteers supporting our home and have regular musical performances, fetes, raffles and visits from school groups.
Friends and family are more than welcome to join in for any of our activities.
Your room will be furnished for you, but we encourage you to bring personal belongings such as photographs and soft furnishings to make you feel at home. There are television sets that you can watch in our common rooms, but you are welcome to bring your own television or radio if you wish.
Enjoying a variety of delicious, nutritionally balanced meals is an important part of maintaining good health. From our central kitchen, our executive chef, sous chef and dietician create menus that provide variety and maximum nutritional value without compromising on taste. We offer choices of hot and cold meals, cater for allergies, culturally-specific needs, and create a special menu for a theme day each month.
You can view some of our menu options in our What's on the menu? flyer
