  • A place my mom loves

    My mom lives here and truly enjoys the residents and staff. It is very much run like a family home. It is not a simple task to find a safe and joyful place for some one in your life that means so much. Bickford was that place for my mom. She has loved it there. I am so grateful to the staff each and everyone they are “true joys”!

  • They were not expecting me and [name removed] never arrived. I was told he is at the west facility. I was given a tour by the director. Too far from our home. Memory care is only for severe dementia.

  • Good experience at Bickford

    During the short time my mother was at Bickford in Okemos, she was well cared for. She received prompt attention and good effort was made to make her comfortable and to involve her in activities she could handle. The staff was responsive to family requests, and a slight billing issue was resolved without hassle.
