Customer Reviews

Good experience at Bickford

During the short time my mother was at Bickford in Okemos, she was well cared for. She received prompt attention and good effort was made to make her comfortable and to involve her in activities she could handle. The staff was responsive to family requests, and a slight billing issue was resolved without hassle.

Very nice,but did not fit our needs. A bit expensive compared to others I have visited. Was a bit disappointed that the person who I was suppose to meet with forgot I was coming and met with someone else who could not answer all of my questions, particularly financial questions

Really nice community

Bickford of Okemos was a really nice community. It was very clean and well kept. When we toured the facility there was a different staff member, one for intake, one for activities, one for the caregivers, who explained how their department operated. The only reason we did not choose this community was that there was not the type of room we wanted available.

Bickford Follies

This is the perfect care facility if you want to [Removed] your loved one and be assured they will receive substandard treatment and be over medicated (without your consent) to control their Dementia/Alzheimer’s issues. Staff will allow your loved one (who suffered sundowners) to wake up another resident in the middle of the night and then be charged with [Removed] and forced to receive psychiatric treatment based on the word of the other resident with no witnesses. Then after the family moves them to another care facility and they pass you will get a packet of unopened mail from Bickford including correspondence from the State of Michigan seven months later regarding a court case that was missed because the notices were not sent to family. They want model residents only and be prepared for nothing but problems if your loved one has any issues from their disease. Quite a contradiction from an organization that claims to specialize in memory care problems and if your loved one was able to care for themselves family would never have considered them in the first place!

Improving so Far so Good

So far everything is going pretty well, and I'am pleased with my mothers move to this community. She is improving, and they are taking good of her, and her needs. They have a good staff, they have been attentive, and helpful. She has gotten involved in the activities they have available. It has been a good experience, and all is well.

Lovely home & landscaping but most important the staff was outstanding. Met with [Removed] & [Removed]. Extremely helpful in our search. Very clean and they encourage pets! I would recommend you visit.

Nice place. Very much like a home. Couldn't be happier.

Really nice & caring people feels very homey. Price is always a concern but most are priced in the same cost range. My husband is one of the younger residents so I think he isn't challenged as much as he could be. He is making freinds and overall I believe it a place worth looking at seriously.

What a gorgeous property! The staff were friendly and helpful. No one was available for our scheduled tour but a med tech took over and did a great job. Residents seemed very happy and the rooms are lovely. Common areas are comfortable and luxurious. Unfortunately the price is quite high compared to other smaller properties.

From the Community

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.
