    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.

    The staff turnover is disappointing. The current staff is excellent. My mother tells me that often activities are cancelled or no one shows up to lead them. We understand that comes with staff turnover.

    Love the staff and facilities. Frustrated that there is so much turnover in management and nurses. Hoping that corporate can give better benefits or pay or whatever it takes to keep good staff. Turnover is not good for residents.

    (Name Removed) was very helpful. (Name Removed) accompanied my mother and called me at home which I so appreciated. Still having trouble with mom having water where she can reach it.

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.
