A Happy Place That Feels Like Homereviewed on: 08/25/2017 by Candy
The staff at Bickford has made my mother's move to a memory care facility to be a smooth and positive experience for Mom and our family. The director and her staff have been so accommodating to meet all my mother's personal needs. They have responded to answer any questions I've had about my mother's care, both by phone and email. They created a personal care plan for my mother, and I have full confidence that my mother is being medically and socially taken care of. The activities director does a great job in engaging residents in fun activities. I love the pictures she sends showing Mom taking part. One thing that attracted my family to Bickford were the resident apartments decorated with the residents' personal furnishings and decor. That is so comforting to my mother. Every time I visit Mom tells me, "I love my apartment." Overall Bickford lives up to its mission - enriching the residents' lives with happiness and making them feel like they are living in a place that feels like home.
Bickford is like familyreviewed on: 04/10/2018 by Teri Goertzen
My mother spent four wonderful years at the Bickford. She was loved and cared for by many. The staff is exceptional with a special shout out to Amy and Cindy for their caring and knowledgeable services they provided to my Mom. My Mom always felt the Bickford was her home. If things were changing, I was always notified. End of life care is challenging and expensive, but the Bickford family made it easy and loving. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for assistance with their loved one.
I toured every place in town. Happy my loved one can stay here as she ages, & I don't have to worry.reviewed on: 11/01/2021 by Joy
If you have an individual that is starting to have problems with dementia, it's a very good place to go. We feel very comfortable with them. It's a small community, and they really try to get the residents engaged in activities that are appropriate for each person's level of dementia. The residents all have their own individual apartments, and they can have pets. Bickford of Omaha - Blondo truly specializes in dementia and does a great job with that population. The food is good and homemade. I think it's a very good value here.

We toured this community. My mom wanted a bigger community. The staff are nice and were helpful. The menu was appealing and they had a nice list of activities that would have been helpful for her. We would recommend that other families tour this community for the care of a loved one.

It has been really good for my mom. They have all kinds of activities, like exercises and games. She also plays the piano and everyone enjoys the music. I hear she has made lots of friends too. The meals are very good and she has been enjoying it a lot. It is a very, very nice place and the care they provide is working out very well.
