Recent reviews of Assisted Living in Columbus, OH
Bickford of Worthington
5.0

The community has raised the price twice; one for COVID related and the other one being due to the increasing care of my loved one. On Bickford's website and Facebook page I've been lucky enough to see my loved one engaged in activities. I have a co-worker who I am encouraging to go to Bickford of Worthington for their loved ones.

At Our Family Home my husband has constant and loving care by trained caregivers. I feel confident that I have found the best care available for a dementia patient.
