Comments from our residents and their family and friends

Our 19 year old son moved to Belmont Road over the summer/autumn of 2022. This was a huge step, both for him and also for us as his parents. We always knew that one day we would have to take this huge step, but letting go of a son for whom you’ve cared for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all of his life, is heart breaking. Fortunately, we found Belmont Road and we knew immediately it was the right fit for him. The staff made the move as easy as it could possibly be, they have been sympathetic and understanding of our own anxieties, nothing is too much effort and they continue to be very supportive! Most importantly, we trust all of the staff in caring for our son and meeting all of his needs. We miss him so much but still see him every weekend and know that he is very happy in his new home

Family and friends FAQs

How does home leave work?

We support our residents to attend family events and visit home. We will work with them and their loved ones to ensure possible risks are managed and that everyone is supported. This may mean the individual’s key worker will come along on the visit.

Can friends and families visit?

Family and friends are welcome to visit and join in any of our activities with their loved one. We do ask that we are informed in advance to ensure the experience is as a positive one for everyone. Unfortunately, we cannot cater for visitors to stay overnight.

Will I be involved and kept up to date with the progress of my loved one’s care and support?

Yes, we strive to keep the loved ones of our residents involved in their care. We can arrange regular catch-ups either in person or via telephone, to ensure you are kept informed.

Will my loved one be able to have a phone or call me?

Everyone who stays with us will be able to call their loved ones any time, via phone or video call. Our home line is available and there are cordless phones at various points around the home which can be used by residents at any time. In addition, we can support our residents to get their own mobile phone or tablet, where appropriate.

What are the bedrooms like?

Bedrooms are all furnished and residents are supported to personalise them to suit their needs and wishes.

Are external doors kept locked?

Our external doors are kept locked. However, we always operate in the least restrictive way possible, and residents are able to enjoy our garden and outdoor space.

What do residents eat and how do meal times work?

Residents are supported to choose and encouraged to prepare what they want to eat, whenever they like. However, we will support residents with any problems or concerns they have around mealtimes, such as preparing their own food. Our team will also seek guidance from family members and nutritionists to ensure that special dietary requirements are catered for.

How does laundry work?

Residents are assisted to do their own laundry, as part of promoting independence, or our staff are available to offer them support if needed. Our team will ensure that residents always have access to clean clothes and bedding.

Who does the housekeeping and domiciliary tasks?

Staff support and encourage our residents to complete these tasks, to promote their independence. We also have a dedicated housekeeping and maintenance team at the service.

Is there anything they can’t bring or have?

Residents are not allowed to bring illegal substances onto the premises. Everyone has their own safe in their bedroom. We may place restrictions on some items where the risks cannot be appropriately managed, such as non-approved drugs and medications, solvent-based products and lighters.

How do activities work?

Every resident has a tailored activities planner. This will include both in-house activities as well as visits into the community. Their key worker may use a variety of communication tools to ensure the resident can have an input into the planning of activities.

How will residents be supported with their behavioural needs?

We use a positive behaviour approach, which means we focus on proactive strategies, rather than physical intervention.

Do residents and families have an input into the care plans?

Yes; regular best interest meetings are held to discuss and review each resident’s care plans. We work with social workers, family members and residents to develop care plans which are in the best interests of our residents. We use a variety of communication tools and work with health professionals to aid each resident in having a say about every aspect of their care. Care plans are regularly reviewed, and family members will be asked for their input.

What are the car parking facilities?

There is a car park on-site, which is free of charge.

What is the smoking policy?

We have a designated smoking area outside, where staff, residents, and visitors are able to smoke or to vape. The people who live here can be supported to purchase cigarettes at the shop, if this is what they choose. However, we do promote healthy lifestyles and can support residents with smoking cessation programmes.

What are your fees and how are they funded?

Our fees can vary, and are based on an assessment of each individual's needs. Many people are eligible for financial help towards the cost of support, and this funding can be accessed by contacting your local authority. Once funding has been agreed, we will work with your local care team to put together a bespoke package of care. Please note, referrals for NHS or Local Authority funded services must come from a referring organisation.
