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...

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.
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
The Marketing Director was outstanding and fabulous to work with.
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.
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.
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.
We were at Bickford for only two weeks. Our experience was good. PLEASE don't send any more surveys.
Homelike and friendly. Very light and bright. Cost is within budget.
[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.
My dad was at Bickford for about a month There were no problems, the staff was friendly and the programs were interesting. From what I could tell, Dad had a great experience.
