Almshouses

We have been providing Almshouses in Bedford for over 200 years. Our first ones, in Dame Alice Street, Bedford, were completed in 1802.

Today we have 14 bungalows and cottages in Randalls Close, Bromham.  These will be  replaced by 25 new apartments being built at the ExtraCare Retirement Village at the Wixams, due to open by 2019.

Our residents enjoy an independent lifestyle with the benefit of knowing help is close to hand whenever they need it.

We also have nomination rights for people on our waiting list to extra care schemes at Oak Way House (Bedford Citizens Housing Association)  Dame Alice Court (Anchor) and Sir William Harpur House (bhpa).
