Assisted Living Reviews for Bickford of Ames

October 30, 2015

By Anthony21

I visited this facility

Bickford of Ames was very nice, but it was smaller, and I needed something a little bigger for my mother. It was a lot more expensive, too. However, the people were very wonderful, kind, helpful, and knowledgeable. The facility was very clean. If it would have been a little bigger, I think that would have been my first pick.

I visited this facility

My great aunt was a resident of this facility for several years, and I was impressed with the cleanliness of the place and how friendly the staff seemed to act. There were plenty of activities for her to take part in, like bingo, classes, and movie night. I asked how my aunt thought the food was and she smiled and told me that it was better than what she had been cooking at home! She seemed to be making friends and having a good time overall. The caretakers on staff were professional and kind to everyone, and made her feel comfortable and taken care of, more than when she was living by herself and taking care of everything by herself. Overall I would recommend this nursing home to anyone with a family member that does not feel comfortable taking care of themselves any longer, the clean, comfortable, friendly environment was ideal for my aunt and really took the pressure off of her. I was incredibly happy with her time there, and visiting was never a problem.

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.
