"A long term care home is primarily the home of its residents and is to be operated so that it is a place where they may live with dignity and security, safety and comfort, and have their physical, psychological, social, spiritual and cultural needs adequately met."
- Long Term Care Home Act 2007, c.8, s. 1.
Philosophy of Care
Belmont House is committed to providing residents with individualized care to meet their needs and assist in maintaining independence and quality of life.
The fundraising we do through Belmont House Foundation allows us to provide exceptional care, and diverse and plentiful activities, well beyond what our goverment funding covers. We gratefully appreciate any donations, and as a charity, we will provide charitable tax receipts for any gifts.
Using a multidisciplinary team approach, we work with the resident and/or family member to identify needs and to develop a plan of care. Belmont provides resident-focused restorative, supportive, and palliative care.
The core interdisciplinary team consists of Physicians, Health Care Aides, Registered Practical Nurses, Registered Nurses, Physiotherapists, Pastoral Care, a Social Worker, a Pharmacist, a Recreation team, a Registered Dietitian, and a Music Therapist.
Dementia CareBelmont House has a 26-bed secure Dementia Care unit with qualified staff to provide the best care possible to those with Alzheimer’s and related dementias. Residents on this unit can participate in programming individually designed for their needs.
2nd Floor Walker Wing Roof GardenThe Walker Wing Roof Garden is designed especially for residents with cognitive impairment. The roof garden provides a safe outdoor activity area that is fully enclosed and completely secure. Benches and chairs have been strategically placed along the circular path to provide rest areas for residents while they enjoy a walk around the garden. This interactive garden provides residents with the opportunity to plant their own flowers, have a barbeque, or visit with friends.
