Assisted Living Reviews for Bickford of Ames

August 27, 2012

By Quinn27

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My aunt has been a resident of Birksford for over four years and I have been there at least once a year in that time as have many other members of my family. The facilities are top notch and it is a clean, well maintained facility. The room options are nice and have enough space for what they need. They smell good and are well lite. My aunt loves the food and loves the different events and activities that they get to do there. The staff are kind and well trained. They are always nice to my family when we visit and my aunt says that they are wonderful to her. The grounds are nice as well. She is able to go for walks, go to the store, and many other things while there. Anytime she is not feeling well there is someone right there to tend to her needs. I would highly recommend this facility. She also really enjoys use of the community room and the private dining room. They also have a full service beauty shop that she uses all the time. What she loves the most is that when she needed to move into a facility like this that they allow small animals so she was able to bring her cat with her.
