Bickford of Carmel

Your loved one deserves to live the best life possible

Watch your loved one thrive in an environment that feels like home

Navigating the aging journey is difficult.

We understand what’s at stake here: it’s not just someone, it’s your loved one.

Meanwhile, it’s on you to make the difficult decisions.

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.

What an awesome Nurse’s Week at Bickford of Carmel!! We had a week full of treats and gifts for our special BFM's!!! Nurses are vital to us and without their expertise and caring hearts we would not be the amazing senior living community we are!! Nurses are just one part of our amazing team here and this week was all about showing our appreciation for each of them!! A special thank you to Kona Ice for supplying all the amazing shaved ice treats for us!!

The best way to ensure our residents live happier, healthier, longer at Bickford of Carmel is to create moments that are meaningful to them. Today our Happiness Coordinator teamed up with some talented ladies in our Mary B's to create denim flowers. Any time spent with loved ones with Dementia is an opportunity to invoke purpose and meaning to their lives. Thank you, Sheila for spending time with these special ladies today!

    A manager REALLY is needed for the second shift | I would like to have a corporate employee visit me for at least 12 hours without employees knowing he/she was from corporate as though he/she was just visiting me, especially on second shift. | A 5 - New third shift employee: (name removed) - Super; came promptly and changed (name removed) brief efficiently and quickly. Friendly even at 12:30 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. A4 - (name removed); Works well on third shift. It seems as though those who work only at Bickford and do not have two jobs or not pick up two shifts are the best and most pleasant workers especially those who like their jobs and not stressed. The CNAs don't need the extra task of putting on/taking off the table cloths and laundering. The pictures on the brochures do NOT show table cloths.

    We like Bickford very much. But once again I will ask you to please, please change the two heavy double front doors. I struggle mightily to get my wheelchair bound husband in and out of them by myself. Thank you. I also think the many broken bricks in the front parking area are a hazard and a liability. The food is delicious. The staff are kind and caring. (name removed), the happiness coordinator is a great asset. She does a terrific job. (name removed)

    (name removed) in Mary B's are AMAZING and why Bickford gets a 5++. They deserve a raise for all the do to bring joy and love to my Dad (name removed) daily!

  • Mar 1, 2024

    Nursing staff and care givers really do care!! Thank you for such loving service!

  • Feb 1, 2024

    The care-giving staff is excellent- but I am not sure if housekeeping is doing their best. My brother's bathroom is not as clean as I would like it. (name removed) told me that he was monitoring housekeeping during the day to make sure my brother's sheets and towels were getting washed-but my sister said towel was dirty, so I'm not sure.

  • Jan 2, 2024

    It's been good overall; however, I feel like Mary B's could be cleaner. I feel there is a difference in cleanliness when you walk from the assisted living area to Mary B's. I'm not sure how often housekeeping visits Mary B's or who is in charge of keeping things clean (ie - carpets vacuumed, floors mopped, etc.), but there's a noticeable difference between the two.

  • Jan 2, 2024

    I miss having regular access to (name removed) in memory care. She has been the primary source of my satisfaction in that area.

  • Dec 1, 2023

    Bickford is an excellent environment for my mom. She is very happy with all the staff. I am blessed to have my mom in such a friendly, loving environment.
