Bedford Adult Day Center is located adjacent to BMH, in a spacious facility with an impressive view of the Peaks of Otter mountains.

Continuing its tradition of providing quality care since 1993, the center offers professional day-time care and supervision for adults who, for various reasons, may be dependent upon others.
