Belmont Long Term Care Facility is a fully accredited (Accreditation Canada) 128 bed long term care home, located in the City of Belleville. The Home was born from an amalgamation of Belcrest Nursing Home and Montgomery Lodge on July 15, 2003. Belcrest Nursing Home’s history dates back to 1943 and Montgomery Lodge’s history dates back to 1968. The intent of the original owners for both facilities was to create a “home-like atmosphere”.
The owner, David Clegg, strives to ensure we provide a place where our residents feel at home and where caring and compassion come first.
We provide a variety of professional and support services in order to meet the varying and complex needs of our residents. We provide 24/7 nursing care, access to a Registered Dietitian, Physician, and Physiotherapist. In addition, we offer full meal service, housekeeping, laundry, and activity services to all of our residents.
