Welcome to our News page.
We would like to reassure all families and friends of residents living at Belmont House Care home that we are all doing well.
Through this crisis we have had full support from Torbay Care Trust and their team of specialists who have supported us with up to date information, training for staff and some PPE. We have now been able to test all our residents and staff who agreed to have the test. The results were back within 48hrs and thankfully all have shown negative. We continue to keep families updated on a weekly basis by email or phone calls, this is greatly received by our families. Our residents continue to enjoy this lovely weather and so are able to spend plenty of time with each other and our wonderful staff enjoying ice creams in the garden.
Our Care Quality Commission inspector Mr Christopher Bishop has been a great line of support for the Management team and the home. Under the Emergency Support Framework a two hour discussion took place this week with Mr Bishop, Mrs Phillips ( Manager) and Miss Phillips ( Deputy Manager) to identify how Belmont House is managing the crisis and being able to comply with guidelines set by the commission and local authority. Mr Bishop was very pleased with our management of the crisis and has expressed no concerns at all.
We will continue to ensure the safety of all residents and staff by complying to the Government guidelines. For all our readers of this blogg please keep well and stay safe.
