Bickford on the Scioto is the best for Memory Care!!

My husband arrived at Bickford in August last year following the transition from Sunrise. The "old guard" did not want to make the adjustment and thwarted the change in caring style for the residents. The "old guard" basically abandoned the residents and left to go to another Sunrise facility. The "new guard" is wonderful, caring, fun, attentive and life is so much better as the transition to the "Bickford way" is finally taking hold. The "old guard" continue to make contact with the residents trying to get them to leave Bickford, pitiful and emotionally abusive, seems like an ethical breach. I am glad we stuck it out and my husband is living the good life on the Memory Care floor. Thank you to the Bickford staff, you are wonderful!!

Appeared somewhat run down. Seems like there are staffing issues as well. Did not appear to be maintained as well, and there were several vacancies.
