I assume you're talking about Bell Fibe? There is nothing you can purchase to record those Bell signals.
When my father moved into assisted living we had a similar issue with Rogers - most residents were satisfied with the regular box that was included with the room. I ended up having to contact the Management of the assisted living facility and getting their "business" contact information and dealing with them. I was then able to utilize the Rogers PVR that my father already had, but he was billed (a small amount) extra for that service. You cannot deal with the "regular" Bell Fibe contact people because this is a business.
In your mom's situation, there may not be any options, but try contacting the retirement home management first and get the Bell business contact from them. Bell may not have anything in place (billing, tech service, infrastructure, etc) to provide for the extra PVR service, or they may... It depends.
I've moved your post to the Bell Fibe section of this forum.
Another option may be to look into "streaming" the particular programmes using the internet connection (if applicable at the residence)? I'm not that familiar with how Bell streaming works - talk to the Business CSR and see what they have. If there is internet, then other streaming options (direct streaming of the programme from the broadcaster) may be possible. This would circumvent the need for a PVR in some instances/programming.
