Belong Morris Feinmann

Our vibrant community village in South Manchester boasts state-of-the-art facilities and high quality nursing and dementia care.

Since opening, it has attracted attention as an award-winning facility and is rated 'Good' by the Care Quality Commission who found it to be notably caring, well led, responsive and effective, as well as being safe and consistently compliant with best practice guidelines.

The village holds the NHS Six Steps accreditation for high quality end-of-life care and its nurse manager won the Great British Care Award for Palliative Care 2019. Its Experience Co-ordinator, who runs an extensive programme of events and activities, also won recognition as a regional finalist in the Care Home Activity Organiser category.

Located in the heart of West Didsbury, the village centre is open to the public and provides a vibrant hub for community events, with facilities including an exercise studio, hair salon, bistro serving fresh kosher food, therapy room, function rooms, library, synagogue and gardens, including a roof garden.

The complex includes independent living apartments and specialist households providing 24-hour nursing and dementia care.

Support is also available on a day basis through our ‘Day club’ which specialises in supporting people with dementia to give carers a break and includes use of village centre amenities such as the bistro and exercise studio.

For people looking for support in their own homes, we offer an award-winning home care service, Belong at Home.

Notes

The Belong village was designed to offer the most supportive environment possible for people experiencing dementia. All our staff have been trained to recognise and deal sensitively with the wishes of the person with dementia, from the nursing staff within each household to the catering staff in every bistro, ensuring that all residents can participate in the warmth and support of our community, however complex their needs may become.

We also offer a free Admiral Nurse service, which provides specialist dementia support and advice to residents who have been medically diagnosed with any form of dementia, as well as their family members and carers.

Belong draws on 20 years of experience in supporting people with dementia, and the physical environment of our village model and, in particular, the open-plan household design aim to maximise independence and orientation, and reduce dependence on memory. Below are the cornerstones of our approach.
