I love the welcoming, warm feeling that a smaller facility like this has to offer. The environment is very homey and warm. It feels very community and family-like. I think they're short-staffed unfortunately, but the workers that they do have work very hard and do their very best. I love the activities, but my dad does not. They're geared more towards women, and it would be nice to see more male-oriented things for him. But the activities director is phenomenal. She is one of the best parts of the place. They do go out once a week for lunch, which is really nice. His apartment is perfectly sized for him and is handicapped accessible. The director went above and beyond to help me get my dad in there and take that step. And she provides a lot of personalized attention. We really like Bickford.... Read more

About the facility Bickford of Gurnee

We began our quest into senior living because of our love for our beloved mother, Mary Bickford, whose needs became too great for us to manage. As we researched senior living options, we were shocked at our findings. The options offered too much or too little — none met her needs and nothing felt like home. Since we couldn't find what we wanted, we decided to create what we needed. Our main desire was to create a place that helped her achieve an equivalent peace and happiness that she had earlier in her life.

We understand that selecting a senior living community for your loved one is one of the toughest decisions that you will ever face. We will work with you to ensure that the transition is as easy and comfortable as possible. Whether your loved one is at home, in the hospital or even in another state, we can work with your hospital, insurance company, and doctor to make your difficult decision easier on you and your family. Aging can be difficult — but we've also seen the beauty in aging. Our mother's happiness inspired us. We created Bickford for her and now we're devoted to serving...

Disappointed

We waited for at least ten minutes to be let in, person we met with was more concerned with me putting down a deposit to secure an apartment instead of Mom's needs. I will be taking Bickford off my list.

My tour review

The facility was nice. The facility was a little more costly and a little smaller and more homey feel. We did like that this facility felt more homey and smaller.

A good facility for the cost.

Overall we've been pretty pleased. The only downside seems to be on the weekends when they are a little bit less fully staffed and wait times are longer for assistance. I know most places are struggling with staffing now due to the pandemic. So it might be a better place for people who are more ambulatory. Also because of staffing, there don't seem to be structured activities on the weekends outside of mealtimes. But during the week, the activities are good. They try to get the residents to socialize as much as possible. They don't appear to really allow the residents to just sit in their rooms. They do try to draw people out as much as they can, as much as the resident is willing. They do a very good job keeping the facility looking clean and nice as well. It's only a few years old, and really well designed and nicely laid out.

Lovely facility, rooms were beautiful. The Alzheimer’s unit was nice but there were only 4 residents so it seemed very quiet. I am removing my mother from a place that has very low census and no activities at all, not sure I can take a chance on another place with low # of residents and staff.

Moms move

I recently moved my mom from here. We love the CNA’s and the staff. The Bickford corporate staffing and practices do allow for best care for the resident. They manage pennies not people. Wish the best.

Amazing CNAs, Terrible Management

My grandmother is a resident here, and the only reason I gave 2 stars instead of 1 is because of the amazing CNA’s here. While Bickford is a gorgeous facility and I cannot say enough wonderful things about the CNA’s, something absolutely needs to change with leadership/management here. The turnover of staff is so high that the CNA’s are expected to perform not only their job description, but also pick up the slack from being so understaffed that they’re expected to cook in the kitchen, clean the cafeteria/eating area and do residents laundry. My Aunt takes all of my grandma’s clothes with her weekly and washes them at home to alleviate some of the stress on the CNA’s and because we can’t trust that it’s going to get done. Not to mention their washers are often broken for extended periods of time. We have seen so many good CNAs and cooks come and go because of the amount of work that’s required of them. It’s especially difficult for the residents that have memory loss because they will finally get used to a staff member only for them to resign a short while later. It’s a total revolving door and it stresses the residents and their family members out. Understaffing has also lead to multiple residents walking right out the front door without notice, which is very scary for being on busy a busy intersection of Hunt Club and Gages Road. When family members sat down with management (including the District Manager) to voice concerns and ask what was going to be done, family members were given typical corporate blanket statements with no real sense of urgency or care. It comes off as though all they care about is the money and cutting expenses (staff) to increase their profit, even if it’s at the expense of their residents. For what we pay monthly at Bickford (which is a VERY pretty penny), we will be looking for another establishment for my grandmother if management doesn’t make changes soon. This area has plenty of nice assisted living facilities to choose from and we’d gladly give our money to one who cares more about the wellbeing and care of not only their residents, but their staff as well, rather than greed. Bickford has huge potential to be run the right way and be a wonderful facility for residents, but even the nicest facility with beautiful esthetics can’t outweigh or hide the real issues that are happening.
