Peter's Place

Peter’s Place is a refurbished Grade II listed building at 8 The Crescent which has recently been developed to combine comfortable surroundings and appropriate adaptations to meet the needs of the service users, providing six ensuite bedrooms in the main house and a further seven bedrooms in a newly built extension. Whilst those service users in Peter's Place will have a totally self contained home and landscaped garden, there will be opportunity for service users to mix with the service users from 12 The Crescent, the adjacent care home, if this is felt appropriate and in their best interests, particularly for social events.


Peter’s Place is located in Bedford Town Centre within walking distance of Local Shops, Banks, Post Office and Library. 


Peter’s Place at 8 The Crescent provides two ground floor bedrooms with ensuite shower rooms in the main building, with four first floor ensuite bedrooms upstairs. The seven bedded ground floor extension has a further seven rooms with ensuites, providing a total of 13 rooms. Ceiling track hoists can be installed as and when required by individual service users and a nurse call system with access to modern assistive technology (such as epilepsy monitors, door alarms, bed sensors etc.) is in situ to summon staff assistance when necessary and alert staff.
