Review originally written on A Place For Mom

It was a relief to find something so nice to move your loved one into

The activities were great, and the community was neat, clean and did not have any fowl smells. The courtyard sat right in the middle and it was just beautiful. We would absolutely recommend this community to others.

Avoid this place

I would avoid this place. They do a good job marketing it as trying to provide a better option that is more caring, but that it not the case. They over promise and under deliver. They say someone will respond within 5 minutes of a request, but that may just be someone saying ,I don't have time to help you now, I'll get to you later. I witnessed this for myself, and I heard about it from my mom. They'll probably label it a "behavioral problem" that a resident presses their call button too much, when it may be because they don't get any help when they ask for it. They also said that my mom could use the bus to be transported to medical appointments if two weeks notice was provided. This almost never was true. My mom missed appointments because of this. In fact, one physician no longer wanted to accept her as a patient because of those last minutes cancellation. Once a staff person did transport her in her own car. I was horrified by the way my mom was treated in the last weeks of her life. She went into hospice care in April 2020 and was given only two weeks to live. The nurse told me I could visit her and other family members without restrictions due to short time left. She abruptly changed her mind after five days. She tried to say that it was a corporate policy, but she made the choice. No one told me that I could take her outside the facility to see her until I discovered it on my own over a week later. After I took my mom out the first time, the next day my mom told me that the nurse there, Jennifer told her that she could never see me again because people were scared. I didn't get to see her that day. Someone from hospice intervened and the following day I did get to take her out. The nurse harassed my mom for leaving the facility to spend time with me. She also tried to convince me that I shouldn't take her out because if I did then my mom couldn't participate in group activities like Bingo!!!! I was horrified. I couldn't believe it. The nurse never apologized. She continued to harass my mom for visiting outside the facility. My mom lived only 22 days after she entered hospice. Even the day before my mom died, when she collapsed at night and I was told a hospice nurse was going to come assess her, but would take a long time to arrive because she needed to stop at the pharmacy to get drugs, the drugs that would make my mom more comfortable if she really was dying, I was told that I couldn't come see her right away. It is terrible to think of other families who have no idea that residents can leave the facility because staff wants to hide that option, even when people are dying with only weeks left to live. The nurse was clueless about my mom's condition. She didn't recognize that she had stopped eating anything at all and drank almost nothing. My mom became extremely week and wanted to just sit outside the facility to visit with me instead of getting in the car to leave. We were told to leave the premise. We were not allowed to sit outside the facility to visit. No reason was provided. On the day that she died, the day after she had collapsed, we were told that only two people could visit at a time, even though before we were told it would be four. We were also told that we could visit once and then leave, not leave and come back. It sucks to be fooled by the nurse and the marketing guy. They seemed like caring people. Their actions say otherwise. The marketing guy is not going to care for your loved one. Marketing is just marketing.

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”!
