Belmont is nestled in the upscale Germantown residential area on the east-side of Memphis, TN. It is located about three miles from the popular Lichterman Nature Center. The rooms are elegant, not unlike those found in a five-star hotel. House-keeping is meticulous and residents are educated and motivated to help keep their surroundings clean and safe. Laundry services are provided to residents if requested. There is a general gather parlor where residents can chat or enjoy other community activities. Residents can also use this as the reception area for visitors. Belmont has an in-house concierge to assist residents with day-to-day arrangements. This includes setting up transportation to the drug store, church, grocery shopping or other needs. For both men & women there is an in-house salon. This convenience allows for residents to receive manicures, pedicures and hair-styling without having to leave the facility. They have a full-service, well -staffed in eat-in dining area that provides meals designed with the health and wellness of the elderly residents in mind. They offer up a myriad of dishes, each prepared by the in-house chef and culinary staff. We saw the fitness center, but my father was not much into work-outs. However, he loved the quiet of the on-site library and spent much of his "free" time there. I am grateful for this small amenity because I know it was one of the most enjoyable parts of my dad's stay at Belmont. He often called to tell me about the latest book he was reading. There were never any complaints, which I found odd, since my dad was VERY finicky and quite the complainer. I think the staff went out of their way to pamper the residents. The few contacts we had with staff were pleasant and they seemed genuinely interested in the well-being of the residents. I have recently had occasion to investigate a facility here in South Carolina for my mother-in-law. Belmont has them beat in every category. In fact, I have told my wife if I ever get to be in need of assisted living, ship me back to Memphis. I feel the entire Belmont concept of business is to provide a dignified, pleasant environment for all the residents. It is definitely the five-star assisted living facility of the South in my book.
