About the facility Bickford of Peoria

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...

tour review

Our family had an in person tour and it was a wonderful experience. This was our second choice. We loved the way the rooms were set up around the perimeter and everything was just outside of the rooms. The activities area and gathering areas were just right outside the rooms so very accessible to the residents.

Overall A Friendly and Warm Community

There has been staffing problems currently. The future could be a bit shady because of this. Overall it is a good place. The staff seem to really care about the residents. The food is pretty good. Some items for meals are prime rib, bacon each morning, home made soups. The community's goal is to make as much from scratch as possible. There are choices for the main meal as well for the residents to choose from.

Difficult transition for my loved one, but friendly staff.

With Covid, we're only just now starting to be able to go in and spend time there. As far as I'm concerned, they've done a very good job with my loved one. Any time I've had any issues, they've always straightened things out. I would recommend it here. Most of the staff are very friendly. There's always that one person here and there, but overall they're very friendly. It always smells very good in there. I know my loved one would like to see more activities than just bingo. They tried to have a country western themed day, and only one other person participated. I feel like the staff should be participating too when they plan those sorts of things.

our experience was not good

The community was nice but the rooms were not furnished. The food was about average and the community was clean. I was lead to believe there would be onsite physical therapy but we have to arrange all that and we could have done that from home

Expensive for what was received

My nephew chose Bickford of Peoria for me and he chose it online. I would want others to know that they charge you for every little thing that they do. They did have some very good activities to offer and brought in a lot of bands and things like that. Overall, I would reluctantly recommend. It was very expensive for what you received.

a great place for a loved one

We had a good experience here. The facility was clean but the dining rooms could use some cleaning. Room sizes were good, and the food was also good and they had a good variety. I would recommend this facility.

I would recommend.

Bickford is a good choice. The food is okay, my dad would like a little more variety. The room sizes and the layout of the community are good. The staff is good, just wish there was not so much turn over.

[Name removed] was a pleasure to work with. I can't say enough about her. My Mother in Law decided on Bickford, even placing a down payment to only change her mind the following day. The reason for changing of her mind was due to the increased monthly dollars compared to what she is currently paying today. After thinking on it overnight she didn't feel comfortable with spending the additional dollars. She did get the opportunity to see what was out there which I am grateful for. Thank you for everything.

Don't go here

The worst customer service ever. I pulled my mother out of there so fast that they didn't know what was happening. I cannot believe the poor care and lack of concern they showed my 98 yr. old mother.

Met and exceeded our expectations. This is definitely at the top of our list as a home for our father. We were greeted as family upon arrival and it just continued from there. Bickford had everything our father needed to feel independent and safe.

I can't say anything bad about them

Everything is going pretty well for my brother here. The staff is great; they’re friendly and knowledgeable. They seem to be taking good care of him. We go down to visit and he is always dressed and showered. The director, [Removed], has been really good with him. [Removed]visits my brother a lot, only my husband and I visit from time to time so my brother doesn’t get a lot of company, so he enjoys it when others engage with him. She is also very accessible, even through text message; she is there almost 24 hours I don’t think she ever leaves. They are very attentive to folks. He likes the food, which was the first hurdle because he’s a picky eater. They make it by scratch and they can make somethings on request. There is also don’t pressure us with moving him to permanent living. There is no signing a contract only a 30 days’ notice which I like. I really can’t say a bad thing about this place.

Nice, Family Setting

Bickford of Peoria is a bit of a smaller community, and the staff seems friendly and knowledgeable. I like that it seems like a nice, family setting. The food is also excellent here. They have some of the best meals my parents have had while being in one of these communities. There are so many activities here as well, at least two or thee events every day. It is also a very well maintained community. I would certainly recommend it to others.
