Bickford of Urbandale

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.

Happy Hour certainly is a delightful time for to socialize, unwind, and enjoy life. Happy hour provides an opportunity our residents to connect with others. Whether they’re reminiscing about the past, sharing stories, or simply enjoying each other’s company, these moments foster meaningful relationships and a sense of well-being. Lighthearted games like musical chairs, trivia, or karaoke create an entertaining atmosphere. Seniors can showcase their talents, sing their favorite songs, and laugh together. It’s a great way to build camaraderie and lift spirits.

"Grateful for another meaningful Bible study session with my amazing friends. Keeping the faith as we age isn't just about spirituality, it's about staying connected, finding comfort, and embracing wisdom. Together, we're discovering the beauty of faith's enduring strength in our lives. Today we sang an all time favorite "just a closer walk with thee" #Blessed #Community #FaithInAging"

Howdy, partners! What a rip-roarin' day we had here at Bickford of Urbandale for our Western Day celebration! We lassoed up so much excitement with pinning tails on horses, tracking down big bucks, and striking our best outlaw poses in the wanted frame! Y'all sure know how to have a hootin' good time! Thanks to everyone who joined in on the fun – let's keep that Western spirit alive! #WesternDaySuccess #BickfordHoedown

What a wonderful time we had yesterday listening to The Beach Boys! We brought out our beach ball and imagined ourselves on the beach with the nice warm sand between our toes. It was such a fun and relaxing escape!

In our Mary B's neighborhood, we're always up to something exciting to boost our hand-eye coordination! This latest game was absolutely perfect for that. All you need is a little ball, a couple of pool noodles and some friends. The goal? Keep the ball from hitting the floor and your not allowed to use your hands. It's so much fun and keeps us on our toes!

Yesterday, we had an absolutely wonderful time in the courtyard, soaking up some glorious sunshine! Our good friend Cathy couldn't resist rolling up her sleeves and pant legs to fully enjoy the beautiful day. It was such a delightful experience!

This afternoon in our Mary B's neighborhood, we read a heartwarming story from our Chicken Soup book. The story, "Kevin and the Saint," was about a deaf boy meeting a Santa who could sign too. It was such a beautiful and touching tale!

    I have a fob to open the front door. It hardly ever works so the staff has to stop what they are doing to come help. Nice workers.! But it takes them away from their work.
