  • Do your do diligence

    My mother was not able to utilize her space in the community because of her condition. We had to ask several times for someone to come in and vacuum her apartment. Other than that, the rest of the community was consistency clean. The staff was very friendly, especially the front desk personnel. The care at Bickford was a little lacking. They did not seem quite capable of providing her the care she needed despite us being told they would be able to do so when she moved-in. Because the building was old, it meant some of the doorways could not accommodate for her assisted stand lift. They were never able to get her into the shower or onto the other level of memory care, which contained another shower and tub. We don't feel the community was worth the price tag, especially once my mother moved in and we realized they were not able to handle the level of care that she needed. During the assessment they assured me they could take care of her and in fact, they could not. The biggest issue for me was that often times I would visit my mother in her room and there was often times other residents' belongings in her closet, which I immediately turned over to management. Management failed to properly address this even after I brought it up multiple times. It got to the point where the care giving staff was refusing to answer questions about my mother's care, which I felt was unacceptable. The activities at the community were good, however, as they had quite a few activities available for the residents. They brought in outside professionals to help with entertaining the residents and provided other activities in-house like karaoke, tailgates for football games, and others. They also took residents off-site, however my mother was never able to utilize those trips. If you are able to communicate, walk, and be mobile, it is a great place. If you are not, however, it is probably not the best option for you as the care they are able to provide each resident is limited.

  • In serious of a staff sweep

    I've never been to a place where staff is so unapproachable. Walked in and staff just stare and dont speak or even force a smile. The cosmetic work is nice but the heart of a good facility is staff and administration at this place [name removed] on down to activities person not sure of her name, could use several classes on customer service because its seriously lacking at this place. The attitude seems contagious here because there all the same way.The only person, literally, who initiated a welcoming hello was the receptionist, the older lady with the blonde hair, was very nice, not the short one with black hair. In the future please be more pleasant to everyone who walks in , you never no who's entering your building, i guess they fell asleep during that lesson. But hey, see fir yourself hopefully your experience will be more pleasurable than mine. PS The 1/2 star is for the residents, they were lovely
