I visited this facility

Bedford Court was okay. Their rooms were okay too. They did have activities there. It was a very nice place but it's not just where I want my uncle to be. If that kind of facility is what you want, it is recommendable, but it wasn't my choice for my uncle.

Bedford Court was extremely impressive. The facility was clean and the apartments were all very bright, light, and spacious enough. The sale rep was phenomenal. We ate brunch and the food was great. The people were nice and it looked like they have lots of great activities.

The Bedford Court apartments were spacious but the closets were tiny. A couple of the apartments were done over the courtyard and a beautiful view. The food in the dining room was excellent, some of the best food we have had. The servers in the dining room were very friendly and nice. The activity program came up short for us. The director was very pleasant, and they combine activities and trips to Leisure World.

Bedford Court was almost like a hotel setting and everything. They have a lot of activities, and the dining was very good. It was just very nice. I really fell in love with it, but it was too expensive. I can't really afford it.

I visited this facility

I visited Bedford Court and we liked it very much. My parents liked it because it's very close to where they live and to their church. Nothing would have to change as far as what they know of their neighborhood, for the most part. By them fixing two meals a day, changing the linen once a week, tidying up the apartment, and then being able to get my Dad through his doctor's appointments, it will reduce a lot of stress on my mother who is the primary caregiver of my father All of those were big pluses. They showed us several apartment styles; one bedroom, two bedrooms, huge ones, and small ones. They showed us the whole layout of the campus. We saw the billiards room, dining hall, laundry area, storage area, arts and crafts, and the library. They rolled out the red carpet, gave us some little light fare, and sat and talked to us. They had some of the residents come sit down, chat with us, and tell us what they liked about it while we were having our little light fare and it was really great. The staff was very nice and they really know what they're doing. I consider it a five-star senior living place, outstanding! The light fare was excellent. They showed us the menu for lunch and dinner, and it all looked good and superb. From what we tasted, the light fare was very good. We like the fact that my mother won't have to do a lot of cooking and she won't have to take care of the linen weekly, and that somebody would tidy up the apartment. But as to the best, I can't really narrow it down, and the simple fact that they can definitely take my father to his doctor's appointments because these are all within a 3 to 5 mile radius to where the complex is. Both of my parents would surely be happy there. My Dad likes to eat expensive meals and he can have that almost everyday in there.

Bedford Court has everything my parents need so that they can relax in their retirement years. They have a lovely 2 bedroom apt. with a full kitchen. They are served delicious, healthy meals in the dining room every day. They are close to shopping. Shuttles are available to take them to nearby places. There are activities for them to participate in within the facility and locally. I have peace of mind knowing that they are in a safe environment and if the time arises, they will be able to move into the assisted living community.

My grandfather lived at Bedford Court for 5 years in their fantastic Independent Living facilities. He liked it there- particularly being on his own, being able to socialize with a number of the other seniors he met there, and their dining facilities (he was a salad bar kind of guy). All the staff members there were always courteous and helpful when they were needed. The residents were in general very nice people as well.The location, within close walking distance to the Leisure World Shopping Center, was a great benefit. My grandfather would walk over to the Giant Food, the post office, the Starbucks coffee and/or the Barber Shop regularly.As the facility was just across the parking lot from the Leisure World Medical Plaza and a physical therapy center, there was never any problem getting access to medical treatment after he had his stroke. He was able to keep living in the Independent Living facilities for sometime after that.My cousins, my sister and I were always happy to visit. His room was large and spacious, we could go to the dining hall with him, and he would take us to the rec room, which had a pool table.After having another stroke, my grandfather had to transfer into the hospice facility at Bedford Court. As with any hospice, it wasn't particularly a pleasant place, and it seemed a bit inferior in quality to the independent living facilities. However, he was taken good care of there.I do recall that the place was rather expensive though, and I'm not sure if the benefits equaled the cost.
