I visited this facility
Bickford of Midland was very nice and very home-like, and the staff was very friendly. The rooms were on the smaller side but very nice. The place was very clean without any odors, which is really nice. They sent me home a little pot with some homemade breads that were delicious. They seemed to be receptive to adapting their meal plans to the residents' needs. They had daily activities, and on Sundays, they had a non-denominational Church service. They had a calendar of events up on the wall. They had laundry services or the residents could do their own laundry if they wanted to. Their price seemed pretty reasonable.

My mother has been a resident for several years, at first in the general memory/assisted living area and now in the more specialized memory care section. Excellent administration has been in place for 2 years. Staffing is stabilized and well-trained CNAs are caring and able. An RN is on duty daily, and can be reached off-hours as well. It feels like home to my mother, and I am grateful for the high quality of care and lovely surroundings, but especially for the personal attention she receives from so many good people.

Staff: Aides are kind and respectful, but over worked. Appears to be a lot of turn-over with the staff. Positives: Facility is clean and nicely decorated. Negatives: Facility appears to have no contingency plans when cook or nurse is gone. Meals are good to mediocre and aide staff is expected to provide the meals when cooks are not there. Concerns are addressed in what I would consider a very "canned response." Unfortunately, since Midland is a small town the choice of assisted living is limited. therefore, I believe there is no real competition to make this a first class facility. I would like to see the corporations pay for activities for the residents. Most activities are from volunteers, so they aren't very interesting. I wish we had other solutions for caring for my parent.

Bickford was smaller and much pricey. The apartments were small and I believed all they had were studio apartments. However, the people working there were nice. They had activities and it was close to home.

My mom stayed for about a month at Bickford of Midland. It was good but not excellent. We did not feel confident with the care that she got. And the communication with the family was not good compared to the other facility.

My Father lived at Bickford Cottage in Midland Michigan and they treated him with love respect and friendship. The staff was always kind and caring and was more like family then staff and made the end of his life easier and more peaceful. Thank you!
