The tour guide at Bickford of Champaign was very good. The facility was clean. The food seemed reasonable and appropriate. One resident who was there stopped by and talked to us and she had positive comments about the place. The rooms tended to be small, but we only had one that was available for us to look at. It was attractive. They have transportation if anybody needs that.

We toured Bickford of Champaign. The person that I spoke to was very nice, but the place seemed small, and the room was very, very small. When I looked out the window, I felt like there was something around the trash cans. I was very honest with that person. She's like, 'What do you think of the room?' I'm like it's so small. I can't even consider my parents here.' I didn't like it. The room was like a big room with a bathroom attached to it. They had activities going on.

Provider Response

Hello Mary, we appreciate your candid feedback about our facility. In order to better assist you, we will need additional information. If you are willing, please contact us at your earliest convenience. Thank you.

We were very satisfied with our tour at Bickford of Champaign. We were pleased with everything that we saw. It was very clean and the people were all very friendly. They had a library and outdoor seating areas. The apartments were set up well, and everything looked good.

Provider Response

Barry, we are delighted we could provide you with such a positive experience! Thank you for taking the time to let us know how we did.

We toured the Bickford of Champaign, and it was good. The director of sales took us around to show us the rooms and several places. She told us about some of the activities and gave us a tour of the building. We looked at some of the things they had. But it wasn't one of our priorities. We just walked by and didn't go into any rooms there. The place looked nice and clean. She was nice and seemed to know what she was talking about. We saw the dining room, the recreation rooms, and the fitness room.

Provider Response

Hi, Dennis, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. While it looks like we were able to meet some of your expectations during your visit, it also looks like we have room for improvement. We are always open to feedback from our visitors on ways to enhance your experience. Please feel free to reach out to us with your suggestions for our leadership team.

We toured both the assisted living and memory care of Bickford of Champaign. We liked that it was small. We liked the memory care, but the assisted living was not quite what we were looking for. They didn't have the size of the rooms that we wanted, but the facility looked good. It was well-maintained, homey, and even decorated for fall. There was an outside area with a patio and a small garden, a whirlpool, and a living room. The staff seemed very engaged, approachable, and friendly, but the tour guide just didn't seem to know the building very well.

Provider Response

Hi Sheila, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. While it appears we met your expectations in some regard, we are always open to feedback to help us improve. I will share your suggestions with our leadership team.

Bickford of Champaign was very clean, nice, and had a good atmosphere. They had semi-private rooms which were a good size. They had good facilities but the cost was a little bit higher. It appeared like everybody was happy and very laid back. The person who toured us was polite, courteous, and answered our questions. She tried to be as helpful as she could. They had a very nice situation where the food and accommodations were nice.

I have visited this branch numerous times and I have always had a pleasant experience. The staff is friendly and very willing to help whenever there is a concern or question..We considered moving our mother to this building before deciding to keep her at home. I was pleased with the meal that we ate and the happiness radiating from the caregivers. The person that does marketing there, greeted us by name at the door and kept in contact with us, answering all of our questions along the way. She also mailed out a card, thanking us for taking a tour and spending time in her building. The nurses are very busy, but are available to help when needed. I would recommend this place for a friend or loved one!

The management is terrible. During the day, you could see staff sitting around on their smartphones while residents were calling out for help. If it was after 5pm, good luck finding any staff. The director is never available and doesn't return phone calls. Weekends are always short staffed, and you can tell the staff that's there is overwhelmed and exhausted. The hallways always smell like urine. Residents are choking in the dining room and there is no one to help. The parking lot is an ice rink in the winter. Staff is always gossiping and the police have shown up several times. The nurse is passing meds, helping in dining room, taking people to bathroom, cleaning, and doing laundry. I don't see how the nurse can focus on nursing concerns if they're doing housekeeping. I never see activities going on. The residents in the memory care unit are always in their wheelchairs at empty tables. I don't see any staff on that unit and it looks like a nursing home.

Bickford of Champaign was very nice. The person who assisted me was great. We walked past the dining area. I didn't taste the food except for the roll that they brought out for me and that was delicious. They have a living room with a nice big social area with couches and TV so residents can gather and talk. The facility was nice, clean and neat, well organized, and well taken care of.

My mother-in-law currently stays in Bickford of Champaign. She is comfortable and doing OK. They have quite a bit going on as far as activities are concerned. I would recommend this facility to other people who are searching for a facility. We liked its small size. It is all memory care, but they do have Alzheimer's care. It is nice because we don't really have to move her to a different facility.

I visited this facility

Bickford was small and quaint. It would suit people who don’t want to be in a large home. The rooms were cozy and well-appointed but relatively small. It was very homey, and they were having cocktail hour in when I went there. Everyone seemed to get along well there. The dining room was very nice, and they had coffee and juice available at all times. It seemed like a very nice facility. The two best things I liked were the attentiveness of the staff and the size of the facility.

About Bickford of Champaign in Champaign, Illinois

If you think there's not much going on in a senior living community, you've never been to Bickford. Imagine your loved one enjoying delicious, scratch-made meals, having a friendly caregiver always nearby, and a calendar chock-full of social activities. Our family of caregivers will do whatever it takes to make sure your loved one is living their best life possible.

That includes our nationally recognized HigherPath senior health model. Think of it as your loved one's safety net -- a proactive care team that's all about helping them live happier, healthier -- longer. Oh and did we mention our resident happiness ratings are double the industry average?

Get your loved one on the HigherPath

Many assisted living facilities seem similar. But Bickford's nationally recognized senior health model is taking the road less traveled and championing a higher standard of senior care. An interdisciplinary care team will ensure your loved one is getting whatever proactive interventions they need to stay on a higher path.

  • On-site primary care
  • High-performing care network
  • Interdisciplinary care meetings
  • Integrated health records
  • Outcome-focused technology

Created to care for our family. Devoted to serving yours.

Bickford was founded in 1991 to care for our own mother. What started out as a family need has blossomed into our life's work. We're still family-owned and operated today.

Support in a home-like environment

Your loved one deserves to focus on what matters most -- living the best life possible. Whatever care needs they have, we're here to help.

  • Bread Basket Scratch Kitchen - This isn't institutional food. They'll get three meals a day from our scratch kitchen -- good as home can be.
  • Daily Activities - Choose your fun every day, with options like exercise, guitar sessions, happy hour, and much, much more.
  • Pet Friendly - Know your loved one and their pet are thriving together. We provide assistance with all pet care needs, including feeding, litter box, and outdoor time.

  • Medication Management - Twenty different pills per day? No problem.
  • Assistance with Activities of Daily Living - Whatever it takes to give your loved one their dignity, choice, and independence.
  • Maintenance-Free Living - Housekeeping, laundry, home maintenance -- no more! (And yes, we'll even help with the TV remote.)
  • Dementia Programming - All Bickford caregivers consistently receive advanced training in dementia care.
  • Spiritual Care - Most senior living communities rely on volunteers for spiritual care. Not us. We partner with MarketPlace Chaplains to provide reliable, consistent, professional support.

Help your loved one age gracefully in 3 easy steps
