Reviews of Bickford of Iowa City

  • Small community - just 37 residents. One floor, very easy to get around. Large aviary. Lovely interior courtyard with raised garden beds.

  • Mom knows what she likes

    We were very lucky when we brought mom here as she had been at a different Bickford in a different city that she really liked so her transition here has been great. Mom told me that she feels comfortable here...

  • Keeps Very Busy

    Mom is doing okay since moving here it has been a big adjustment but she is settling in. She is keeping busy with all the activities the community has which is good for her. The food is good no complaints....
