I would recommend you go and visit the community for yourself. This is a great place for your loved one to be. The staff are very friendly. The community is extremely clean from top to bottom. The meals are excellent. There are three meals a day and snacks served twice a day. The check in and check out process was beautiful during the short stay, prior to my loved one becoming a fulltime resident of the community.

Our family had an in person tour and it was a great experience but it was just to far away.
Belmont Village was a beautiful facility. They invited us to come for a day visit and we got to eat a meal there in their restaurant. The only reason we did not choose this facility was because they did not take medicaid and were privately owned, so it was going to be too expensive, but it was very enticing.
The staff is very involved, friendly and the communication between the staff and the families is good. They well us vell informed with newsletters and they quick to return calls. I would recommend this community to others
My ratings are based on the Memory Care Unit. I think it is a great place. I really liked the general community, and thought it was great option. Memory Care is pretty good, but there were a few instances that tainted our experience.
I really like Belmont Village
I have been hesitant to write this review for some time. probably out of respect for some of the more dedicated and compassionate staff that work at Belmont. I have lived in Oak Park for many years and I am shocked by what continues to happen. I had a loved one and still have ones I care deeply for, who live and work at Belmont. I am very disappointed with the care that the residents have been receiving at Belmont village in Oak Park. There are staff who are EMOTIONALLY ABUSIVE towards the residents, and probably physically. This overlooking and negligence goes all the way up to management, primarily an individual who oversees the nursing department who has a very nasty attitude. I have also heard very nasty stories and interactions between management staff and Pals who regularly call residents degrading and nasty names. They poke fun and embarrass the residents in front of their peers. When these instances are brought up staff lie or make it difficult for said individuals. I implore someone to look into the residents mainly those who are on locked units. If someone recorded what was going on there many people would be fired. These individuals can not speak for themselves and can't even defend themselves.
My [Name removed] was there three months. He was 92 yrs old and all who cared for [Name removed] treated him as if he was their dad, grandpa or husband. They could not have been more attentive or loving. I am so grateful he was there. I felt at home also. I was kept informed about his care and felt welcomed at all times. Thank you to all who were there for us. [Name removed]
From the moment we walked in, we felt the wrmth and friendlness. Staff and esidnets smile, seem happy and content. Th facility is clean and easy to get around. Everyone is helpful! We couldn't be more pleased.
This facility offers good services and care, however, no independent living options. It is not a good fit at this time.
Very nice facility. Has a lot going on. Higher priced facility; but has a lot that I'm looking for.
The worse my parent gets, the less care they take of her. A few caretakers are stellar but many are not patient. attentive, or kind. She has broken bones here, needed stitches and often has dirty hair, How devastating it will be to have to move her at this time. Start somewhere better!

We’re very sorry that you feel your mom has not received a consistently high standard of care. We always strive to provide the best possible care and input from family is an important factor in helping us do so. Please reach out to your executive director so that she can schedule a care meeting with you, the director of resident care services and the regional director of operations to address your specific concerns going forward and ensure that your mom receives the best possible care.
My mom has been at Belmont Village for 5 years. They've been wonderful years for her & for me. Not only is Belmont a great facility, it has done the most important thing of all - taken the stress of worrying about my dear, sweet Mom off my mind & heart. My mother has Alzheimer's. She is in an advanced state but in good health & spirit. I live in another state so I am not able to see her as much as I would like to. The staff at Belmont keeps me abreast of her life there, good & bad. It's like having a professional family working w/you to cover all the needs of your loved one. I'm notified of Moms appts., physical therapy, personal needs & even her moods. The staff keeps a close eye out for anything "different" that may need the assistance of a nurse or a doctor. Any doctor appts., a PAL (staff member) goes w/ Mom to make sure she's safe & also to keep her company. The relationship between Mom & the PALS is of utmost importance. Mama is accustomed to their faces & kindness. She trusts & enjoys them even tho she may not always "mind" them. The residents are not forced to do anything, just gently guided w/patience next to Godliness. Speaking of guidance, there is so much activity going on at Belmont, believe your loved one will be kept alert & on their toes. They hear the news, (via the PALS), the date, see movies, exercise & are constantly having celebrations from birthdays to holidays. The nurse administers meds on a schedule as dictated by your doctor. And any changes or questionable physical conditions will be reported to you by the Belmont Village nurse. They keep a sharp eye out on my mom as she can't communicate aches, pains, etc. because of her Alzheimer's. I've grown to appreciate them more than I could ever convey. The residence itself is beautiful. I'm happy to know my mom is walking around surrounded by windows, plants, pictures, comfy chairs & couches with music playing. By the way, the residences are always welcomed to sing along & they sure do. When I'm in for a visit, I attend the parties & sing along too! It's fun & easy to see the residents are enjoying themselves. My mom is always well groomed & she gets mani/pedis at the beauty salon right on the premises. I speak to her often as there is a phone on her floor that I can call anytime of the day or night. Hearing Moms voice & her hearing mine as often as I want is a blessing. Every once in a while, she'll ask me to call back later as she's having so much fun involved in some activity or other she "can't talk". Yes, I did say she is in an advanced state of Alzheimer's. The staff at Belmont have provided her such excellent care, she does quite a few things that are pleasantly surprising. I can honestly say she is thriving! I can't leave out a little something that EVERYBODY comments on & likes - the food!! The food!! The food!! Any special diet requirements are strictly monitored but never the less the food manages to stay yummy. I don't know how Belmont does it but my Mom, who LOVES the food, is still in good shape! I'd be bigger than a snow person if it was me but that's also a testament to the professionals in the kitchen. The cooking & menus are balanced & healthy! Lots of smiling tummies at meal time. Sounds like a little piece of heaven on earth, right? Well, it is. Watching our loved ones age is a tough reality. Do yourself a favor & house them somewhere they'll be happy, carefully monitored, well feed, kept busy having fun & loved. Yes, I said loved! The peace of mind you receive will be priceless. I am lucky to have found Belmont Village and I am grateful to have my Mommie reside there.

Input from residents and families is an integral part of our ongoing care so we encourage you to continue to regularly share your thoughts and concerns with your community team.
My mother stayed here for two weeks for respite. It was a positive experience. They offered quality care, the community is clean and she enjoyed the meals. They had musicians come in during her stay as well. Overall I would recommend them.
This looked like a nice clean community when I visited. The people I met were nice. I would recommend this community, however it did feel more like a convalescent home
Decided that Oak Park was just a little too far from family & friends...never toured Belmont Village. Have heard many wonderful things though.
My mom was at this community. The staff was nice,but we did not get everything we had thought we would get here. The food was appealing with a variety. Activities were offered to her here. The staff was friendly, but we needed more care for her. I would not recommend for others at this time.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve your family. We’re sorry to hear that you feel we did not meet your expectations. We understand the importance of finding the right fit for your loved one and we appreciate your feedback. We wish your family the best.
We called Belmont Village after it was clear Mom needed more structure, a smaller environment and a facility focused on memory care. She has been there about a month. We moved her from a Brookdale facility... This is a wonderful place with very knowledgeable staff--from the marketing folks, to management and the nursing director. The nurses are always responsive when we call with questions or ask to review her medications. Small, home-like, studio or one BR apartments with different levels of assistance. Most of the staff has been there 8-10 years and they are well-trained for seniors with memory issues, dementia. Good activities and memory related games. Not inexpensive but fairly priced for the expertise and level of service. Would highly recommend if you have a parent/ family member with memory issues. We finally feel comfortable that Mom is well taken care of--and they support us as well.
The gentleman I spoke to at this community was a very kind. He was informative and answered my questions. He did inform me he didn't think they would be able to provide to level of caring my mother needed. I appreciate that he did not waste my time.
