Bedford Residential and Nursing Care Home

Welcome to Bedford Care Home in Leigh, where we offer specialist care for Residents with a wide range of needs. We’re fortunate to have six Houses here, each one catering to the bespoke needs of Residents. Located within easy reach of Leigh town centre, visitors can use the local public transport services to get here, and the Home is just 10 minutes from the M6.

Our care and support teams work hard to create a warm, friendly atmosphere for Residents to enjoy. We provide residential care, nursing care, dementia care and dementia nursing care on the site. Across our Houses, there’s plenty of activities and socialising going on, but also peaceful, quiet spaces for Residents to relax in if they choose.

We proudly follow the Advinia Health Care ethos of delivering person-centred care. Residents are treated as individuals, so care teams look after their emotional and physical wellbeing, supporting them to live life how they choose. Together we build happy, full lives for Residents.

Person-centred care

The ethos of person-centred care guides everything we do. We address the needs of Residents holistically – looking at emotional wellbeing, spiritual needs, nutrition and lifestyle, alongside physical care. This approach empowers each Resident to take an active role in decisions about their lives.

We want to provide positive daily experiences for Residents, and ensure they feel happy and safe in our care. By putting their feelings and views at the heart of the care we give them, we ensure Residents feel heard and supported properly.

Activities for all

Our Activities Team provides an excellent selection of activities suitable for all Residents. Every month we focus on a different theme, but there are staple activities such as bingo, board games, tea parties, arts and crafts and singing sessions that go on all year round. We encourage Residents to keep up their hobbies and to try new things. Some sessions have therapeutic benefits as well, such as dementia-friendly musical and reminiscence activities.

We’re a large Care Home in Leigh, so we’ve forged strong bonds with the local community. We have regular visits from the local school, choir, sensory club and bowling club. Local entertainers drop in to perform for us, and we have close links with religious leaders too. It’s important to us that Residents feel connected and involved with life in Leigh.

Dining and nutrition

Our chefs make sure that all Residents are catered for with our varied menus. We take the time to get to know each Resident’s personal preferences and dietary requirements when they arrive. We also regularly check in with Residents to ensure they are enjoying the food we cook, so there’s always an opportunity to make new food requests.

Our kitchen team cook with fresh produce to make nutritious dishes that promote good health. By giving Residents plenty of choices and introducing nourishing and delicious items to our menu, we provide tasty meals to satisfy all appetites in healthy ways.

Covid-secure visiting

Keeping Residents safe and connected with their loved ones is always a priority for our team at Bedford Care Home. We have recently installed a COVID-secure, outdoor visiting pod to ensure that Residents can socialise with their family and friends in warmth and comfort.

Electronic care plans

We always strive to innovate and use technology to enhance our provision of person-centred care. Our Home uses Electronic Care Plans which provide instant and secure access to care details and provide a thorough overview of support and activities. Using technology increases efficiency and enables our Colleagues to spend more meaningful time with Residents and improving the quality of interactions and care and support provided.

A message from our Manager

I Started at Bedford Care Home as a Care assistant in 2005. I loved working here at the Nursing Dementia house I was at then, Since this I have progressed in my career through various roles at Bedford. I have been a Nursing Assistant, Unit Manager, Head of Care and Deputy Manager and I am very proud to now be the registered Manager.
I have always had a passion for Caring since leaving school and the Dream was to become a Nurse, But i took a different route as I had children early on.
My Goal is to make Bedford have a warm and welcoming feel to ensure residents/families, staff and visitors all feel at home. Everyone at Bedford is like Family.
