We hope you are enjoying our website. We hope it gives everyone a comfortable view of life in care, in fact our home is really home from home. The people living at Belmont House really feel like one big happy family.
We would like to congratulate Elle our Deputy Manager on achieving her Registered Managers award, and so she will be job sharing alongside Lynne Phillips in managing the home, making sure that the residents and staff have everything they need.
Covid has not stopped plenty of activities happening within the home. Our Tuesday knitting group with six ladies is very popular and we have an abundance of garments and blankets being made. We contacted the Scabu baby unit at Torbay hospital as we made booties, hats, blankets and cardigans for the very tiny babies. Unfortunately they are not able to accept them yet due to Covid. So we sent them some photos of what we have done and maybe when the pandemic is over the babies will be able to benefit from them. For now we will carry on knitting. Our local charity shop in Brixham has provided us with plenty of wool to be going on with.
During the summer we were able to have plenty of booked in garden visits. Now the winter is coming we have purchased indoor screens so that some visits can continue.
Soon we will be putting up our Halloween decorations and we are already planning our halloween party.
This year we bought an Alexa for the living room which has been a great sucess. We can listen to almost any music requested, it's been a great hit with staff and residents. No more hunting around for CD's.
We are testing all staff weekly for coronavirus and residents every 28 days. So far so good, all negative and we have been Covid free since the beginning.
Even with everything that has been happening this year we have managed to completly refurbish the main kitchen and complete our decorating program throughout the house. It is looking beautiful.
Well that's all for now folks. We will keep you updated with news and events.
Stay safe everyone.
