Assisted Living Reviews for Bickford of West Lansing

We looked at Bickford of West Lansing but our mother didn't need that type of assistance. Still, I totally liked the place, but they sent flowers to my mother and it really creeped her out. So we had to start all over again. But initially we really liked it and liked the size of it. It was a very clean place and I liked the way it was organized into neighborhoods. So for residents with dementia, it's easy for them to understand where they live and what to do. They seemed overly concerned with their staff, and they seemed to engage with their seniors, but they seemed more engaged with their staff. They wanted to tell me about the amenities they have for their staff. They contacted my mother when I asked them not to. Their rooms were studio apartments, so they didn't have one- or two-bedrooms. We looked at their criteria for independent living versus assisted living or what they call enhanced living and memory care; we checked it all out. They have pretty much the same activities as other communities have. The day we were there they had a bus going to the fair, they also have television nights, and card nights. They have a great menu, and the dining area is like a restaurant where they choose their food. We didn't eat there but we saw the menu, which looked wonderful, and they made a point to tell us that it's all prepared there, so it's homemade.

Bickford of West Lansing had a urine smell and there was no elevator. The staff wasn't that friendly. The amenities were average. There was a patio, but it's a non-smoking facility. The rooms were small. The dining area was in the middle of being renovated . They had exercises. It didn't seem like a very friendly place and it would be hard for the residents to get around if they were on the second floor, but the surroundings were nice.

Bickford of West Lansing starts out at the assisted living level, so they don't have any independent living. They only have about 60 people, so that was automatically a no because my mom wants more people and she wants people that are better off. The community itself was really nice, although the rooms were too small. We saw studios and an extremely small 1-bedroom, which was another problem, but the facilities are nice and new-ish.

Bickford of West Lansing was a two-story building, but Mom doesn’t like elevators, and she has a difficult time with stairs. The staff was very nice, though. They were renovating and adding another building for memory care. I liked the setup because there were three communities on each level and each community had its own recreation/dining room area. The grounds were very nice and very impressive, and it was located in a nice part of the town.

My mom has happily resided at Ingham Regional Assisted living for the past two years. The staff genuinely cares about my mom from the Nurses to the Maintenance man. When I visit, I am updated on what's been going on with her and I feel reassured. I can sleep at night.

Ingham Regional Assisted Living was poorly staffed. The place was beautiful. It was like a hotel. The food was very good. They had activities like bingo. My mom was there for not more than 24 hours. The staff was very good, but they did not staff them well enough.

My mother-in-law and father-in-law stayed at Ingham Regional Assisted Living. It's assisted living but they also had a nursing home in the same place. We ate there a few times and it was pretty good food. They took care of the the place. They had mail delivery and a barber there. They had a nice room with a microwave and TV. They had a place where everybody could see a big TV. I was impressed most with the care of the staff. I also liked that if you leave, you'd sign out and sign in because some people get out of those places and end up dying because they get lost somewhere.

We have visited Ingham Regional Assisted Living a couple of times, and it seems like a very nice place. It seems very warm, comfortable, inviting, and homey. The staff is very nice. The rooms and apartments are very spacious. They have physical therapy, birthday dinners, exercises, and bingo.

We looked at Ingham Regional, and we liked it OK, but it has too many residents. The Ingham, I think, has 72 residents. It's a whole lot bigger. What I like about Ingham, is they have a call pendant; a pendant response alert system. Their transportation is cheaper if they have to be transported somewhere. They said that their care staff is all nursing students, then I said their turnover rate would be quite high, with the nursing students coming and going. The team leaders do stay a while, though. The rooms are small 1-rooms, like studios. They are all clean. Because they're in the same area, Ingham Regional would have been our second choice.

About Bickford of West Lansing

We began our quest into senior living because of our love for our beloved mother, Mary Bickford, whose needs became too great for us to manage. As we researched senior living options, we were shocked at our findings. The options offered too much or too little — none met her needs and nothing felt like home. Since we couldn't find what we wanted, we decided to create what we needed. Our main desire was to create a place that helped her achieve an equivalent peace and happiness that she had earlier in her life.

We understand that selecting a senior living community for your loved one is one of the toughest decisions that you will ever face. We will work with you to ensure that the transition is as easy and comfortable as possible. Whether your loved one is at home, in the hospital or even in another state, we can work with your hospital, insurance company, and doctor to make your difficult decision easier on you and your family. Aging can be difficult — but we've also seen the beauty in aging. Our mother's happiness inspired us. We created Bickford for her and now we're devoted to serving yours. We look forward to meeting you soon.
