At Belmont House, you will find several amenities available to our residents. From a fine dining room to an onsite tuck shop, Belmont House provides many services that provide convenience and comfort to our residents and their guests.
Full meal service for long term care residents is provided on each long term care floor.
The Food Service Department and Recreation Department also provide special theme meals and entertainment each month. A registered Dietician is on staff to fulfill the nutritional needs of our residents with special diets and menus.
The Belmont House Tuck Shop is a convenience store opened to our residents, tenants and staff. It is open on weekdays and staffed by volunteers. We offer grocery staples, as well as typical variety store type items. When the Tuck Shop is closed, a vending machine located on the west side of Belmont House offers assorted snacks and drinks.
You can enjoy a social drink before dinner in our Lobby Bar just outside our dining room. This gathering place provides the opportunity for tenants and residents to meet their neighbours or entertain their friends. The cash bar is open weekdays from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m.
Belmont House has two chaplains (Ministers in the Anglican and United churches) who are responsible for the religious and spiritual care of tenants and residents. With the help of community clergy, they coordinate mid-week communion services and masses, as well as daily morning prayers and ecumenical Sunday services. They also facilitate three memorial services a year.
The chaplains also offer spiritual care through one-to-one counselling. This ranges from assisting people to access their inner personal and spiritual resources, to providing a caring presence to those who experience anxiety, depression, loneliness and fear in their losses as they age. They also help families and friends deal with the changes in their relative or friend.
The chaplaincy office is on the main floor across from the chapel. The telephone number is 416-964-9231 ext. 203.
A variety of apparel, shoeware and jewellry companies have sales in Belmont House approximately 6 times a year. These sales include shoes, underwear/sleepwear, jewellery, adaptive and fashion wear.
Salon / Barber Shop
Our Beauty Salon is open Monday through Friday and is staffed by trained professionals. The many services at our Salon for men and women include haircuts, sets and perms, as well as manicures and pedicures.
Belmont House enjoys a park-like setting, with two main gardens on the property. The first is the Walker Wing Roof Garden. This landscaped garden is ideal for outdoor wandering, and is fully enclosed with a safety wall and raised gardens. The two-tone stone pathway, specially designed for cognitively impaired residents, provides a circular wandering path that starts and stops in the same place. Benches and chairs have been strategically placed along the route to provide rest areas. This interactive garden provides residents with opportunities to plant their own flowers, enjoy a barbeque, or visit with friends.
The “Stillman Garden” is a focal point at Belmont House and can be viewed from the front entrance, dining area, and from many of the residents' and tenants' rooms. The garden has a variety of beautiful flowers, a water feature, and many seating areas.
