    I am really struggling with coming in and seeing my dad unshaven, without his teeth in, his room a mess and there being few signs that he's been out of his room to do anything other than eat. Yesterday he was served food that looked really good, either pork or turkey; but the food was not cut up, and his teeth were not in. Had I not been there I'm worried he would have not eaten and been walked back into his room, served M&M's with the report that he just didn't want to eat. I don't feel like my expectations are too high based on the amount that we're paying every month.

    I appreciate the care the staff at Bickford provided my mother in the last few days before her passing.

  • Jun 1, 2024

    I appreciate that my dad is safe and it feels like the staff has adjusted and is working to keep better track of his teeth. I still wish he was out of his room more and getting more movement.

    All the staff are very helpful & pleasant but u especially enjoy (name removed). She is so understanding of my mom.

    I'm still struggling to get some basic care things done for my dad on a consistent basis. I have asked five different people to please make sure his partials get soaked, his teeth get brushed and he wears his partials every day. It's not getting done.

    I really appreciate the people who work with my dad. I struggle when I come in and see that his teeth have not been brushed and his partials are still in a cup by his sink but there has been no cleaner used on them.

    All help very nice and accommodating The cottage always decorated for holidays makes it more homey. Hubby says food is great and cook knows what he likes and try's to see he gets them. So glad he is enjoying his meals.

    I like the new care planning meetings between staff & family. It helps us truly stay in communication with the Bickford team & unsure we are on the same page.

Why other senior living communities don’t share internal reviews

  • Most communities don’t solicit reviews on a monthly basis. Most surveys are annual and used for internal purposes only.
  • They’re caring for a frail, vulnerable population 24/7/365. Healthcare, by its very nature, can be messy, especially when you’re on around the clock. Service failures are almost inevitable in this context.
  • They know that some of the comments aren’t necessarily accurate
  • They don’t have the courage to be vulnerable. They want to control how prospective families see them.
  • They’re afraid it would hurt their sales and marketing efforts
  • They don’t trust the consumer to be able to handle the truth

Reviews FAQ

Bickford residents and families have frequent opportunities to participate in providing feedback throughout the year. Bickford sends out a comprehensive annual survey evaluating all aspects of a residents experience. Following this survey, Bickford sends out a monthly survey to see if we are making progress on improving their happiness levels. The responses to both surveys are posted on the website and remain there for a year.

Bickford is committed to transparency. That means posting all feedback – both positive and negative. Every review is included in our overall score (star-rating). However, we do not post comments that are libelous, profane or risk violating the privacy of our residents.

A Bickford Verified Resident Review is a review provided by a resident or family member/significant other that has been verified by Bickford as an authorized individual. Individual names are protected for privacy reasons.

Bickford has developed a program to improve resident happiness based specifically on the scores and comments of the surveys. Each Branch sets goals to improve targeted areas identified from the surveys. The actions that need to be taken are discussed as a part of each shifts daily stand-up meeting.

Due to the unique and personalized nature of our business, responses to reviews, if requested, happen individually.
