Mom knows what she likesreviewed on: 09/07/2017 by Anonymous
We were very lucky when we brought mom here as she had been at a different Bickford in a different city that she really liked so her transition here has been great. Mom told me that she feels comfortable here and that the staff is friendly, supportive, plus they stay on top of things and they have notified me when they felt mom was not feeling well. They make sure they bring her to the dining room in her wheel chair so she can be with the other residents and she does take part in a few of the activities they offer as well. The grounds are nice and mom has the option of going outside should she want to. We are very happy with everything here.
Keeps Very Busyreviewed on: 09/07/2017 by Anonymous
Mom is doing okay since moving here it has been a big adjustment but she is settling in. She is keeping busy with all the activities the community has which is good for her. The food is good no complaints. The staff, for the most part, has been very good. They are extremely nice and patient, however, we have had to tell them not to ask what my mother wants as far as housekeeping and bed linens to be done and just to do them. Mom has more of apartment living which is nice because she was able to bring some of her personal belonging with her.
A good fit for my momreviewed on: 11/03/2020 by Blane Thompson
We chose Bickford of Iowa because we were pressed for time, they had availability, and this facility was a little more affordable than some others that we looked into. It ended up turning out to be a good fit for the care that she needed. They had 2 different room sizes to choose from, and we initially chose the larger room. It is smaller, but adequate for what she needs. She gets along really well with the staff members and seems to be happy and content here. The only thing that has bothered me is that we are able to visit, but there are limited opportunities which can be hard with my work schedule, so I am not able to see her as much as I would like. Overall, I would absolutely recommend this community.
Highly Recommendedreviewed on: 04/19/2021 by Laura
I would tell others the community was wonderful. I like the personal touches the community did for the residents and families. It was a smaller community all on one level. I wouldn't change anything about the community.
