Welcome to Manton Heights Care Centre, in Bedfordshire
Situated in a quiet and picturesque area, Manton Heights Care Centre is purpose-built and carefully designed to support our residents to live happy, fulfilled and comfortable lives.
Located over two floors, our home includes light and airy, open plan lounges/diners as well as spacious en-suite bedrooms, and a variety of communal spaces such as a cinema room, sensory room, library, activity room, and hair salon.
Our landscaped gardens are wheelchair accessible and designed to be a welcoming place for people to relax on one of the patios complete with outdoor furniture, or to enjoy a spot of light gardening in the raised flower beds.
Lifestyle & Events
Supporting our residents to enjoy every day living at Manton Heights is a key focus for our dedicated team.
By getting to know each person, we are able to tailor our activities and events to their likes and dislikes as well as activities they may like to try.
No two days are the same here and, alongside our usual daily hobby-based activities, we also like to host events which are a little out of the ordinary.
In addition to keeping fit with chair-based exercises, baking, quizzes, movie nights and our knit and natter club, we also take great pleasure in welcoming visiting entertainers, schools, nurseries, and groups to our home to enjoy spending time with our residents.
Our team and residents also love pottering around the local garden centre, visiting local attractions, such as country parks and wildlife centres, and getting dressed up for our themed days throughout the year — complete with themed menus and decorations!

Our team takes a considered approach to dementia-friendly activities and meaningful engagement — supporting our residents who live with dementia to still experience happiness, comfort, and contentment.
With an in-depth knowledge of people’s life histories, we are able to encourage positive reminiscence and create a safe and supportive environment where people feel comfortable taking part in both familiar and new activities, trips and events.
