  • Bickford is a very pretty place. Lots of flowers in the front of the building and in the main lobby. When I first walked in I was impressed with how pretty it looked and clean it looked . Everyone had just eaten breakfast and were being moved into the main living room. The residents looked comfortable, clean and content. There were ladies who worked there that were with the residents in the living room sitting with them to help them if they needed it. I visited the memory care unit, but was told about the assisted and memory care options. The building is older and the rooms are older and ok. The tour went very well, the manager was extremely nice and helpful with providing information. She took a lot of notes and seemed genuinely interested in my mother. They make you feel very welcome and the people who work there stop and introduce themselves and their chef brought in some nice snacks and cold water. They emphasize individual plans for memory care patients to help them and making their residents comfortable and happy. The residents all looked comfortable and content. I liked that all the ladies were in the living room together and not sitting alone. They looked happy and secure to have others sitting around them. I was just touring so I can't say anything other than about the tour. But it is a very nice place to tour, impressive in appearance and people who work there, the manager is very nice and concerned, the building is old but looks nice, the rooms are old but adequate, the location is easy access to met calf avenue. I would recommend touring this facility and considering it.

  • question the cleanlyness of our loved one.

    Well...the staff does seem friendly, but the cleanliness of my mom, is not satisfactory. I don't think they are making sure her teeth are brushed everyday or the showers, as what they said they would do. I question their that they are doing laundry as they said. A number of times, when picking up our loved one, once a week she is not ready and has not has her showers or even clean clothes on. When something is said about this, they seem to make the corrective actions as requested, but it only last a time or two, and things seem to go back to they were, is what it appears to us.

  • Not a good facility!

    This facility is very understaffed. They promise you things and they do not happen. They have some very devoted people but they can not take care of everybody. Nobody answers the phone and nobody on week-ends to help. Many times the halls smelled of urine. For the money you pay they should do more for the residents. The food was to be home cooked but I never found that to be true. The same things were served over and over. Food was usually cold and service was very slow. I would look at other places first for the money you pay and little service. Talk to the residents before you choose a place. Learned a lot from them after moved in.
