My stepmother, Mary Jane, spent her last year at Belmont in Atlanta. You have an exceptional team there. They were quite remarkable in their efforts to help maintain MJ’s quality of life, despite the inevitable slide of increasing dependence.
Mary Jane’s daughter, Pat, who was by MJ’s side daily, got to know the folks at Belmont very well. She reports that the entire Belmont team is to be commended for their helpfulness and compassion. The director, Lisa, has set a high standard for all of the staff. She has a great administrative staff who do their jobs so well. The time spent in selecting and training employees and retaining and keeping staff informed and content has paid off. Special commendations go to the activities director and the Circle of Friends leader for being willing and enthusiastic about being adaptive for MJ’s blindness. That was a bright spot in every day for her. The community relations associate was very helpful from beginning to end and really exemplifies what Belmont Village advertises in her first-hand knowledge of all residents and her love for them.
The nursing staff was very attentive and proactive in keeping all treatments and meds on schedule. The waiters were wonderful, helping with selections, particularly once MJ began to have trouble swallowing. The front desk and anything else that needed doing was handled with such ease and hospitality. While the beautician is not really staff, her genuine love for MJ made every Wednesday a pure delight!
The entire family joins me in expressing our gratitude for the expert care and kindness Belmont showed MJ.
