Service users thinking of coming to Bellavista Care Home are encouraged to visit the home and sample the atmosphere and level of service. This gives the new service user time to get to know the staff and adjust to new people and surroundings. A month’s trial period is always given before making residency permanent.

The home is registered to accommodate 26 persons over 65 who require either residential care or nursing care; one person may receive dementia nursing care.

Bellavista is willing to accept an emergency admission if that is judged by the care manager meeting and satisfied that all the needs of the service users met at Bellavista and to be in the interests of the service user and all parties can comply with the requirements of Standard 4.4.
