To transform how America cares for seniors
How America is caring for seniors today is not good enough.
We’ve devoted our life’s work to changing it.
There's a Higher Path for our seniors
Senior care today is reactive, expensive, and siloed. It’s a sick-care system, not a health-care system (designed to keep seniors healthy). Most of us have accepted this status quo because it feels too big and complex to change. Not us. We’re taking the road less traveled and championing a higher standard of senior care.Learn More

Inside the business of caregiving
We aim to be the best place in America for a caregiver to work. This requires us to operate differently. We rely upon some of the leading organizations in the world to get us there.
Stagen Leadership Academy is our leadership development partner. Every Bickford leader participates in their rigorous personal development programs.
We use the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS) to clarify our vision, gain traction and optimize our team health.
As active members of the Conscious Capitalism movement, we see (and run) our business as a force for good.
A timeless commitment
We started Bickford in 1991 to care for our own mother, Mary Bickford.
For her, we built one of the first freestanding assisted living communities in Kansas. Our founder, Don Eby, helped pioneer early regulations to birth the assisted living industry. We’re still family-owned and operated today.The Bickford Story
