Delicious homemade cakes are served each day, and there is a Night Bite menu available for late night sustenance, if needed. On their birthdays each resident receives a special meal of their choice and a personalised birthday cake made by the chef.
Offering views of the gardens, the home's sociable dining rooms are the ideal place to dine. Residents can eat in their own rooms if they prefer and friends and family are most welcome to join us for a meals.
Inside or outside the home, there's always plenty to get involved in at Bedford. From arts and crafts, bingo and dominoes to bowls and gentle gardening. Residents have plenty of opportunity to pursue their existing hobbies as well as discovering new ones. A mobile library and local entertainers visit regularly, much to the enjoyment of the residents.
Every month there is a themed event that reflects the time of the year and notable occasions such as Christmas, pancake day and Mother’s day. We often get involved in a number of charitable and community events. Trips out include visits to Harry Ramsden’s in Manchester for fish and chips or on barge rides from Wigan Pier.
