We toured Bickford of Marion. It's a smaller community, so it's more personable. It seems like they take pride in their facility. The staff was very friendly and the ones we met had all been there for a while, which is a good sign when you're looking at a place like that. The studio was pretty small. We wouldn't necessarily want to put my mother-in-law in a studio apartment, but we did get to peek our head in one of the one-room apartments, and it's a reasonable room and it would feel like home. We did not try the food, but it smelled good, and the menu looked good. They're installing a new security system, so they have sensors on the doors, and they've got a new wristband program that they can call for help on and they can detect falls. I think they said there are sensors on the bathrooms so they can monitor how often they go to the bathroom to detect UTIs and other issues associated with the bathroom. I don't remember seeing any issues as far as cleanliness goes. It was organized and clean.

My mom moved in at Bickford of Marion the first week of December. We chose it because of the staff and the location. They've been patient and good with her in helping her to transition. The facility is nice and clean. It's a circle, so you can't get lost. They have a salon, gardening, and a courtyard. So far, I've got no issues whatsoever. They are located near restaurants, but it's about 20 minutes away from a hospital. There's urgent care across the street, though.

Bickford of Marion was just a nice family setting and comfortable. It smelled good. The people were very friendly and nice. Everybody seemed to like what they were doing. The rooms were nice and spacious. They weren't too small. There's plenty of room. In terms of food, they're pretty receptive to what everybody needs, and they follow the diets the doctors prescribed. It looked great.

I went to Bickford of Marion. It was smaller and it seemed very homey. It was really like a comforting, homey area. The apartments have microwaves and mini fridges because all their meals are provided. The person who took me around was very friendly and accommodating. She had a lot of information. They have two courtyards that had fences around them, so people that had memory problems couldn't get out.

Bickford of Marion is a small place and it's like a family setting and I like that part. The staff who gave the orientation was very nice. Her name was Misty. She was very friendly, and she had a good personality, so we like that. Misty was good. I think the facilities need a little more update. They have amenities. The place was clean.

Bickford of Marion was OK. The people were friendly, and the dining area looked OK. They had a library, card games, and bingo. However, I was not too impressed with them. Their rooms were small.

I really like Bickford Cottage but it was quite a bit more expensive than the other facility. It is a nice facility that is on one level. The apartment was nice. You have a little kitchenette in your room and you have a full bath and a walk-in shower. However, if my husband's needs exceed the care they provide, we might have to move out of there. The activities were about the same as with the other facility. We didn't have any contact with anyone except the registered nurse and the girl who gives you all the information. They were both very nice and informative.
