Heathlands Village  is a large care home for older people.  We are situated in the residential suburb of Prestwich in Bury,  Greater Manchester. The Village is part of The Fed which a leading social care charity in the North West.

Our home is set in a five acre site with landscaped grounds, surrounded by a picturesque golf course and moorland.

Excellent care

We’re very proud of being able to offer a wide range of first-rate services including  residential, nursing, respite, dementia and end-of-life care and day services.  These are available for both Jewish and non Jewish older people.

We enjoy full CQC (Care Quality Commission) compliance and have been rated  “excellent” by Bury Local Authority.

Moreover our nursing care department has received Beacon Status accreditation under the national “Gold Standards Framework” for end-of-life care.

We are one of just 18% of North West accredited homes who have managed to achieve this – highest possible standard  and one of only two care homes  in Greater Manchester with this status. We think that’s a superb achievement for our staff.

The staff at Heathlands Village are committed to helping our residents to live their lives the way they want.  We make every possible effort to tailor care and activities to a person’s own individual needs, desires and interests.

Culturally Jewish

Heathlands Village is run in accordance with the religious and cultural needs of people of the Jewish faith.  We have a purpose built community synagogue (shul) on the ground floor of our main building.

We observe the Sabbath (Shabbos) and festivals and mark these with special activities, entertainment, shiurim (lectures) and meals.

All food prepared in our kitchens is kosher and under the supervision of the Manchester Beth Din.

We aim to give people as much choice as possible about their Jewish religious and spiritual observance. 

We are happy to accept residents and day service users of faiths other than Judaism or none at all. Read more
