Nursing & Residential Care

Welcome to Belmont Grange Care Home

Our home is a converted Victorian Vicarage retaining some of the original features and charm. We provide a high standard of generalnursing, residential care and respite care togive home carers a much needed break.

We also provide palliative care when residents and their families need specialist help and support.

We provide person centred care in a homely and welcoming environment. Our home is staffed by a team of professional registered nurses and dedicated carers who all have experience and training.

Our home is located in the pleasant suburb of Belmont within 3 miles of the beautiful Cathedral City of Durham and with excellent access to motorway, bus, rail and airport services.

The most precious thing we can give anyone is our time. All our staff are happy to sit, listen and talk to residents to ensure a home from home atmosphere is achieved.

A Unique Approach to First Class Care

Our person centred approach means that each resident is an individual treated with respect and dignity.

Each resident has a named Care Co-ordinator and an individual care plan. This will cover their personal and medical history, as well asa record of particular activities they enjoy andany cultural or religious aspects of their care.

Residents, and where appropriate their families,
are involved as far as is practical in the decisions regarding their care. Emphasis on all aspects of care is the Manager’s primary concern and, together with the experienced team of qualified staff, all adhere to rigorous standards with internal audits and checks.

We have an excellent working relationship with the partners from the local GP practice. We very much recognise the importance of personal, individual and resident focused care. To achieve this, good communication between all members of the care team, be they nurses, carers, relatives or doctors, is essential.

Our Chef provides nutritionally balanced menus with fresh produce that is carefully prepared to ensure the best combination of nutrition and flavour.

All of our food is locally sourced, where possible, and all freshly prepared in Belmont Grange’s kitchens by our Catering Team.

The menus are rotated every 4 weeks to ensure variety and you can place your food order from the daily menu. Your meal will then be delivered to you in either one
of our dining areas or, if you choose, to you in your

own room. Family or friends can also choose to dine with you if wish.

Any special dietary requirements are catered for.

Preferences and dislikes will all be discussed with you and our Chef when you first come into our Home, as we recognise that good nutrition is an essential part of a person’s well-being.
