The right place for my loved one

My father has been at Bickford of Portage for over 2 years. This is an amazing facility. He was in a different place originally at the same cost but there is no comparison to the wonderful staff and personalized care he has received at Bickford of Portage. I have peace of mind that he is being cared for as if he was family to everyone there. He has come to feel so at home, and it's such a relief to know that. It's always difficult to help your parent transition to letting strangers care for them, but the caring compassionate staff and lovely surroundings at Bickford made it infinitely easier!...

About the community Bickford of Portage

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 yours. ...

They Put The Residents First

I would recommend the community to others for their loved ones. The staff have been knowledgeable and understanding of the residents and families. They understood the reasons of the pandemic regulations explained this to the families. My loved one loves all of the activities they have to offer, especially balloon volleyball.

They are really nice but the price is a lot.

They are really nice but the price is a lot. It's newer, and seemed to be a little more airy. They were really nice people and were more cheerful than most of the places were. They had a unit of care system so there was an extra charge for each level of care. They had a little bigger rooms and some had a built in cabinet so not just the standard room.
