I visited this facility

Bickford resident care is provided by CNA's and Home Health Aides, these same employees are also responsible for providing housekeeping, janitorial, kitchen and laundry services while on shift.. Staff is overworked, there is a high employee turnover rate, inconsistent and unfamiliar staff. Nurses are only on-call 24/7, they are not on-site 24/7. Facility operating on the legal bare minimum to earn maximum profits.

I visited this facility

To me, Bickford of Battle Creek was a better place. They seemed to have more activities like church services, and the price was a lot cheaper. The rooms were set up differently, and the people and the staff were nice. It seemed nice and clean, but it was just kind of hollow, like it wasn't as homey as it should be.

Bickford is close to where the folks live now and where their friends are. TheyÕre not comfortable there, the place is very expensive but it eases family membersÕ mind to know that somebody is watching over them.The staff is pleasant, nice and respectful.

I chose Bickford Assisted Living for my friend. This facility really focuses strongly on memory care for individuals with dementia. Their studio apartment has everything. All services also are self-contained in the facility as far as meals, medication, management, laundry, cleaning, and activities. It's very appropriate for that group of individuals who need that kind of attention. Also the staff seem very involved in caring.

I have to say that the Bickford smelled clean but not so sterile as is usually the case with these kinds of places. While it was very clean and had something of a home atmosphere I found the staff to be very confident and ever present whenever needed. I think my grandmother enjoyed the interactions she had with some of the higher functioning residents.
