Peter's Place

22 September 2022

In addition to the three homes currently operating in Bedfordshire, Apex has recently opened a new home known as “Peter’s Place” next to the Crescent Nursing Home in Bedford. This home, providing a total of 13 rooms, will meet the needs of service users with a learning disability and physical disability in a “home from home” environment.

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. Easily reached from the A1 and junction 13 of the M1 motorway, the main Thameslink line is also half a mile or so from the home.

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.

Day Centre
Crescent Nursing Home at 12 The Crescent boasts a Day Centre and a cinema room which are managed by a day care co-ordinator and has the potential to be made available to service users at Peter’s Place. This provides recreational and daily living activities Monday to Friday for Service Users and also for the community which includes day trips and holidays. An adapted minibus is available to ensure service users can remain socially inclusive and to provide transport to and from the community.

Hot and cold meals are available. Varied and nutritious food is offered and individual variations are catered for. Service users are encouraged to plan the menus with staff ensuring their personal preferences are catered for.
