I visited this facility

I visited a friend at Bickford. It was an older facility, but the grounds looked fine. It concentrated on memory care, and it was a locked situation. The general areas were like the dining room and the recreation area. He had a studio type room. It was very modest and plain, but it had a bathroom. The staff was fine. One of them was pleasant and very cordial. When I was there most of them were eating, and they could be in different locations besides the dining area.

I visited Bickford of Urbandale, and this facility is very, very nice. We liked it. We had a nice lunch there, and the food is good. We saw several different types of rooms, and they were fine. This facility is pretty convenient for us. The staff was very cordial and wanted to know if they could do anything for us. We also had a nice visit with the director. They have activities, and, in fact, they were having a band or something the day we went there. Overall, I think it's very homey.

I visited this facility

I had a visit at Bickford, and I like this facility a lot. The place is really clean and the staff are very attentive. They seemed to have really good activities, but it was very expensive. Another thing about this facility is that when my mom's funds run out, she would have to move to another place because they wouldn’t accept state or federal funds.

I visited this facility

While in Iowa, we stopped in on the spur of the moment to see the Bickford of Urbandale while searching for an assisted living facility for our aunt. The staff was happy to show us around, despite the fact that we didn't have an appointment. The grounds around the main door were nicely kept, with flower beds and nicely manicured grass. The interior was inviting and we could smell fresh flowers. The entire décor was quite nice and fresh. They had many scheduled and non-scheduled things to do - from reading to games, discussions, and other stimulating activities. The dining areas were nicely designed and warm. The food looked deliciously prepared, as well as nutritious. The dietician and chef changes up the menu to keep it interesting and encourage resident to make suggestions. The residents are encouraged to enjoy physical activity as much as possible. They may take exercise classes such as yoga and aerobics, or use the weight training and other equipment. They may also enjoy the outer walk ways around the building and courtyard. The private rooms were decorated tastefully with a homey, light and airy atmosphere. Each unit has nice views of the surrounding area. Bathrooms were designed with safety seats and rails. The seniors here really enjoy living here - that was plain to see. The staff is kind, caring and very attentive to all of their needs, whatever they happened to be.
