Review originally written on A Place For Mom

I would not recommend

I would rate them high at first, but closer to the end it was not good. My dad was in a lock-down unit with other dementia patients and they reduced their staffing to 2 staff members per 16 people. I would not place any blame on the front-line people here, management just does not properly staff. I would not recommend this facility. It has been 50 days and counting and I am still waiting to be reimbursed after my dad has passed.

Bickford at Presque Isle - Where I hope to live when it's time to transition

Both my mom and godfather were residents at Bickford. The care, compassion, home-like setting, friends, meals, activities, environment went above and beyond my expectations. My cousin and I always joked, "When we retire, we want to live here!" At Bickford, we were all family. My mom often called it a resort. When it was time to put my mom into an assisted living facility, I looked for several things which Bickford provided and more: A place near the water (my mom always wanted to live by the ocean), activities to keep her busy throughout the day, companionship and friends, being able to participate actively in the care and decisions for my loved ones, a cheerful staff. I found in the 3 1/2 years of visiting my mom and godfather - 3 to sometimes 7 times a week - I always found the staff cheerful and always interacting with the residents. The residents truly enjoyed their residents. Based on studies with music and dementia patients, I wanted music - lots of it. Bickford offered so many wonderful programs and piped music into the hallways. They offered raised gardening during the growing season, puzzles, movie night-every night-snacks, bistro, bingo or Pokeno every night with fresh popcorn popping, daily socials or get togethers. The residents became friends. The staff kept the residents informed of the change of seasons and holidays with beautiful decorations, inside and outside of the building. Just walking up to the front of the building, felt like home. My mom and my godfather were always happy at Bickford. My godfather had the privilege to live his life out at Bickford surrounding by the compassion staff and local hospice.

Review originally written on A Place For Mom

it was a great visit! It's a beautiful facility with lots of amenities. Gorgeous setting. The rooms were small but lots of common areas to gather in. Asked for a copy of their activity calendar. There are many things to do on a daily basis. The staff were very friendly and knew each of the residents by name. Not surprisingly, the price was pretty high. It will be interesting to compare to Independence Court next week. Thanks for your help!
