Bickford of West Des Moines

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.

Several our residents enjoyed an outing out to Val Air Lanes for some bowling. Larry was a great team player and helped the others on his team. We used the bumpers and ball ramps and had lots of fun!

We went to Prairie Meadows with a group of residents to watch the horses race. We were indoors in the air conditioning and didn’t have to battle the heat. A few laughs about which one would win. Must say, none of us are going to struck it rich betting on horses but it’s fun anyway! Afterwards we stoped for burgers at Culver’s. Yum yum!

Doris is always looking for ways to help so Jazz recruited her to peel potatoes. I think there may have been more laughing than peeling going on!

Everyone needs a helping hand from time to time, so Bill is helping Rich install the doggie station out in the court yard. Great work guys, it’s going to be so nice!

    Staff @ Bickford is very helpful for my mother's care. (name removed) accommodates needs when issues arise & follows thru for results. (name removed) is very caring of all residents & consistently aides in taking care of my mother's needs, communication w/primary Dr, etc. Shout out to (name removed) for quality care for my mother's needs. There are others, but don't know all care givers names, name tags would be nice(my mother's recommendation). Hope to see outdoor activities in courtyard when weather is nice. (name removed) provide great meals. Mom suggests meatloaf & basic mash potatoes some time
