Mom's apartment at Bickford of Macomb is very comfortable. They have exercises, movies, card playing, dominoes, and just the typical stuff. The food is very good. They are very caring. The facilities are very good.

My dad has moved into Bickford of Macomb. It's good. His room is very nice. It would be nice to have more space, but the price was good for this, so we went with this middle-priced room. The staff members are very nice, very helpful, and very friendly. Amenities are probably where they may be lacking. They have some activities, but my dad has not had any that he wanted to participate in other than they have kind of a church service there. He is missing not having a room to exercise in. Where he was before, he went down two or three times a week, and they had exercise equipment like riding a bike, and he is missing that. There's nowhere to exercise. They did a lot of music where he was before, but they haven't done anything like that here, so he has missed the music program, too. They just changed their maintenance man. I was sorry to see him leave. He was very outgoing and personable. I have not met the new person yet. He just started last week. But as far as cleanliness, it looks clean. They seem to keep everything up well. The good thing is that it's pretty small. They only have 28 rooms or apartments, so there are fewer people, and the staff gets to know you a little better. But then it's just smaller all around. I would like to have a little more space, but it's nice.

I visited this facility

Bickford of Macomb has been the nicest of all the senior homes that I visited. The staff was warm, welcoming, interested, and cared about the residents. It was well put together and well thought out. The rooms were nice and looked comfortable. The facility itself was lovely and the food was good and served nicely.

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My profession is an Elder Law attorney, and I am my county's Public Guardian. I have visited and looked after clients and friends in a number of facilities from complete skilled care to independent living. Our family placed my grandfather in Bickford about a month ago. I visited this weekend and was in the facility several times. The negative review from 2012 does not describe at all the facility that I experienced. First, it was exceptionally clean, and first class in appearance, quiet and comfort. The staff was exceptionally friendly, even on the weekend when there was no upper management around. (Weekends and evenings are a great time to check a facility.) Although my grandfather has some memory issues, he would have made a comment if he had a negative experience with employees. Grandpa hasn't made one negative comment to any family member. In the facility where he was prior, he wanted out every time someone visited. At Bickford, he's never once mentioned leaving. He enjoys the staff, and you can tell they enjoy him. The care is exceptional. My mother is a retired RN and she too has found nothing to complain about with Bickford. The food is great. I came around lunchtime to pick up Grandpa and he wasn't finished eating. They offered me a meal. I am a self declared "foodie," but I said yes. I was pleasantly surprised. The residents had several choices and it was balanced. I give them a five star because I couldn't find one minor issue to critique.

We chose this faility because the staff was very friendly and helpful when we went to visit. My aunt liked the size of the room because she could get her own furniture that she wanted to take in it. It was a one bedroom with a space for her couch and a desk. Also included was a small sink, microwave, and small refrigerator. It had a large walk in closet and a large bathroom. There was a dining room and a big living room which was had a pleasant atmosphere, although my aunt didn't spend much time there. There were rockers outside by the front door where people could sit when the weather was nice. There were planned activities on a daily basis and outings, There was a beauty shop and a resident nurse. The staff members were friendly and helpful. My aunt just didn't want to be there; she wanted to be in her own home. She was depressed and spent most of her time in her room in bed. She didn't like the food and didn't eat much. She lost weight and was going downhill, so when spring came she went back to her home and is much happier there. A lot of the residents there had dementia or altzheimer's, and my aunt didn't really make any friends. When I asked her why she said, "They're all old people who don't know anything."

I visited this facility

Over all, my opinion of this particular facility is negative, but I will try mentioning a few positive aspects as well. The interior of the building seems to be recently refreshed- new paint, carpet and furniture in the living room and formal dining rooms. The food there was good in my experience, but I noticed that the choices, over all, are very fatty and unhealthy. Also, this Bickford is supposed to be considered assisted living, but there are about 35% of the residents that cannot walk, feed themselves or even push themselves in wheelchairs. Some of the staff are very pleasant, but in general, they seem grumpy and careless. I was very disappointed, as Bickford was established on such honorable means with the promise to enrich happiness and extend the lives of the elderly so that they my be happy and healthy for as long as possible. From what I saw, I do not believe that is what my parents would experience there.

About Bickford of Macomb in Macomb, 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.
  • Resident Monitoring System - Never worry that mom could end up somewhere unsafe.
  • Transportation Services - Rest easy knowing your loved one can get anywhere they need to go, safely and hassle-free.
  • 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

  • Visit us. Come in for a tour with one of our Family Advocates. We'll start by listening so we can understand your loved one's unique situation. We know what's at stake and we're ready to do whatever it takes.
