Customer Reviews

question the cleanlyness of our loved one.

Well...the staff does seem friendly, but the cleanliness of my mom, is not satisfactory. I don't think they are making sure her teeth are brushed everyday or the showers, as what they said they would do. I question their that they are doing laundry as they said. A number of times, when picking up our loved one, once a week she is not ready and has not has her showers or even clean clothes on. When something is said about this, they seem to make the corrective actions as requested, but it only last a time or two, and things seem to go back to they were, is what it appears to us.

The facility did a great job with the tour and giving us information.

30 days and out

My aunt went to Bickford for a 30 day respite stay. She had been in skilled nursing for 12 weeks following a car crash and needed to get some strength back. We went in thinking she would be there 6 months or so, but she did not want to stay. She did rehab there and was able to move to independent living. She was promised a lot but was very disappointed and felt lied to. I believe they were not equipped to handle the care required for her injuries. For instance she was not supposed to get up without assistance and yet the general staff decided she could, even though the rehabilitation staff said no. We were there constantly checking up on her and did not feel comfortable letting her be alone. We also had medication issues that caused a lot of stress on the family. If your loved one can assist themselves it might be fine, but I do not recommend this facility if they need extra care.

Clean, friendly, lets my mom have her cats. Lots of activities. Secured assisted living which I like.

I met with [name removed] and was very impressed with both this facility and with [name removed], the activities director. She was very thorough and personable. She went over all of the costs with us and showed me the room that dad could move into. There was only one room left. I was impressed enough that I wrote a $500 deposit, which [name removed] explained would either be refunded should we decide we don't want to place dad here OR it would go towards his first month's rent should he decide to come here. [name removed] then called me on Wednesday afternoon to f/u and ask if I had any more questions or if I had come to a decision. I explained that I was on my way to see another facility and we hope to decide after that. She said she would need to deposit my check by Friday so if we could try to make a decision by then, that would be great. That is my goal as well.

Pleasant Tour of This Community

I had a nice tour of this community, it is a nice facility. Everyone was very kind, and friendly. The community looked very nice, and everything was neat, and tidy. The staff I met was polite, and helpful. It was a good experience, but they did not have any openings at the moment.

The best choice for us

I like that they find activities to match the resident's current care level. The staff are encouraging and even took the residents out to a movie. This is a small open memory care unit. The cost does not change as the residents care needs change. The residents all receive the care they need. They do whatever they can to make the residents happy. This is a privately owned community and I would recommend it for memory care.

A good tour!

Bickford of Overland Park was a nice community. The reason we did not choose it was because they mostly had studio apartments. We wanted a one bedroom. Everyone was very friendly and it was a good experience.

Difficult to get deposit returned

My mother decided not to choose Bickford due to location. They will try to pressure you into a quick deposit. In fact, I had to run it back the same day. Once I requested her deposit back, they indicated they would refund the money quickly. Then a couple weeks later, I got a call from another person at Bickford that indicated it would be 30-60 days for a refund. Poor business practices...

Has everything we are looking for. Friendly Staff and facilities and activities are great

I Saw Nice Interaction

When I went to tour this community I saw that it was a very nice place. The directors were so nice and answered my questions. At the time of the tour, I liked seeing them interact with the residents. It seemed natural to hear them call them by their names and they seemed familiar with the residents. We did not end up here, mostly for the proximity.

It Seems Like An Active Community

My mom is safe and getting good care at this community. The experience is going very well. The staff are friendly, respectful and attentive. They even know my name. It is a clean facility in all areas as well as my mom's room. They do quite a lot of activities but Saturday and Sunday are not as active. They also have outings and I like that.

A surprise find for our Mom.

We had been looking at Nursing Homes/Memory Care units for 4 weeks to find an appropriate, cost effective location for our mother. We had looked at a total of 17 area places when we found Birkford Place. This place was one of the most cost effective but "top of the class" places. The facilities are wonderful, clean and staffed with the friendliest staff we had run across. The food wasn't just adequate. It was very good, restaurant quality food. There are activities daily, and weekly outings.

We are extremely happy so far with our short experience. The bottom line......our mother is more alert, happy, hungry and better taken care of than the previous place of three years.

Treating My Father Very Well

This is a community I would recommend. They are taking very good care of my father and his needs. He loves the food, they serve very nice meals. The is staff is wonderful, they treat him very respectful. There are activities offered, he has gone to a few music ones. I know he is safe and in good hands.

Everyone is friendly, even the residents. It's very clean. They're in there at least twice a week. You can tell the moment you step visually and the aroma. The staff is attentive. Everything is going very well right now. The food seems to be good. My mom seems to like the food, no complaints!

Steer away from High Occupancy Facilities

We became very dissatisfied with Bickford in very short time. My wife had been at Bickford for less than 3 weeks and it became abundantly clear that she was getting VERY little supervision - almost no help with the tasks we discussed in her assessment. There were several VERY serious problems that believe are a result of a grossly UNDER staffed facility. Bickford has 28 rooms - it appears that they maintain occupancy of 25 - 27 residents at any given time. From our experience in the initial 30 days of my wifes stay at Bickford it became VERY problematic regarding the UNDER staffing business model of their facility. ESPECIALLY on Weekends! Out of anger and frustration I moved Peggy into another Memory Care place - Care Haven Homes - It appears that Care Haven Homes uses a business model that is MUCH more attuned to delivering the necessary level of care for their Residents.
Without going into great detail I will simply state the I would NOT recommend Bickford. However, I would like to say that I believe the major problem with Bickford is their Business Model - obviously their primary concern is NOT delivery of good care but it is to keep Maximum possible occupancy wile keeping operating costs at a minimum - Hence the understaffing problem.
I can only surmise that this is NOT unique to Bickford - but that
probably would be common with Facilities that house more than 20 Residents under the same roof. I do NOT believe it is possible to adequately deliver necessary services to that many (20+) Residents in one building/facility.
Therefore I would recommend steering away from "Memory Care" operations that use that business model.
Bickford failed us - my wife miserably.

Excellent staff!

Things are going swell and my mother is doing really well at Bickford of Overland Park. The staff is excellent! They just make everybody feel like they are at home. They go out of their way to help. They have residents who have been there longer pair with a new resident. They do a lot of activities, my mother is never in her room when I call anymore. They go on little field trips out of the place as well. The food I would rate a four and a half. They've struggled with keeping good kitchen staff.

extremely happy, but a little understaffed

My mother is extremely happy there. There's not enough staff members to work with the residents they have there. Sometimes she does not get a shower and right not now, she is not able to care for herself. They need more staff there. Overall, a great place.

Really Good To Work With

All I can say about the place is that every time we have had a request, they have always tried to work it out and have just been really good to work with. I can not think of any improvements that they can make.

Eso far things have gown very well. The staff seems very helpful and caring.

They were great. Very helpful with this transition for my mom. Very happy, clean and caring place. My mom is very happy so far.

very pleased

Overall I am very pleased with Bickford of Overland Park. The facility is clean. The staff are friendly. She is getting good care. It has been a good experience. I have no complaints about this facility.

I Would Recommend Them

Well my loved one says that the food there is very good and he also likes staying there. He likes all the staff and they take really good care of him. I would recommend Bickford of Overland Park to anyone.

Security at the front door, friendly and helpful staff, clean facility with a homey, not institutional feel, very nice courtyard area and indoor walkway to memory care facility.

Totally Impressed!

I don't give a 5 to hardly anything because nothing is perfect, unless it is perfect! I'm happy with all things regarding care and the staff. My mother is very picky with food, but all the times I've been there and I've seen what they served, its always hot, and always seems to be fresh. I was just there Monday, and I'd say on that aspect of it I can find no concerns or anything that I would complain about. Everytime I've been there, the staff has been great, everyone is extremely respectful, loving, patient with the residents, they are phenomenal.

Staff are friendly and provide what I see as quality care.

Nice Facility..
Staff very friendly and welcoming. Lots of interaction with the residents. Amanda did a great job of walking me through and providing the details and answers to my questions.

I toured this facility before signing up with A Place for Mom. The facility is clean, no odors noted. However, I was unsettled by the fact that a resident, on the second floor, was trying to go to her apartment to use the bathroom,(someone was coming with a key), and the person providing me with the tour, told the resident she would tell someone to assist her to get into her apartment and use the bathroom. We went downstairs and into the small dining/conference room, talked for a while longer, and she never told another staff member the resident was still waiting to get into her apartment. I won't be looking at this place any further, for my mom.

experience has been very positive

My aunt loves doing the activities more than anything else in the world, and they provide some of the best! The experience for the entire family has been very positive. Any time we have questions they always provide very helpful answers and guidance. The only area I can even think of to improve is that there was a time or two where the soup has been too salty and not hot enough. Other than that, it has really been a really positive experience.

Bickford of Overland Park:
A wonderful, warm, and inviting place. My aunt was only there for a short time, but they were very good and caring to her. What I really liked about it, is that it's small. Everybody knows everybody.

Looked nice, but not right for Dad

The facility itself looked very nice, but I don't think it would have been right for my Dad. It was a larger community than what we were looking for, and I feel like with his memory issues it would have been very easy for Dad to get lost. The price ceiling was also very high. It started with an amount we could afford but could almost double based on increasing care needs.

Jumbled Rooms

This was the first place I saw. They talked a good game, but I didn't think it was very clean and I felt like what they were telling me was maybe-so. I didn't like the way the rooms were -pretty junky. It looked like no one really seemed to care how to they looked aesthetically. Stuff was just stacked in a corner. The room that I looked at was jumbled. If it was a smaller place and they had good personal care, that would have been great, but I didn't see none of that going on when I was there. They had a class going when I was leaving, but when I came nothing was happening. Activities probably happen, but not on any sort of regular basis. She wouldn't have been happy there. Too much stuff was out of place. I wouldn't want to live in a place like this!

Why we changed facilities.

I was looking for a place that was willing to communicate with me by phone on how my mom was doing when things would come up that I should know about.
I notice the staff are more personable with the residents and it is a smaller environment, but still offers the amenities that my mom is interested. In the beginning I thought bigger was better and I found this to be a wrong fit for my mom.
Even though the beginning few weeks were very hard on my mom with the change the staff worked hard to handle the problems we were running into to get my mom to fit in. They had some staff changes right when we moved in which I was not very happy with but then people do change jobs and it seemed it was just bad timing on our part when we were moving in. I even notice spouses of the residents come and volunteer and I see more families visiting their loved ones. I think it is a good family atmosphere.

Very dark inside. The main...

Very dark inside. The main areas were not clean: soda cans and crumbs on the large dining table; food spilled on the menus; and an odor of urine when I came through the entrance. The staff was friendly and tried to accommodate my needs.


That was okay. We moved mom there simply to rehab from a broken leg. The care was adequate. My mom was the best memory wise and relationship wise (compared to the other residents) and you don't want that. The meals would be one hour before service. I don't know why, maybe they were lazy or something but they would get all the residents in and then it would be another hour before they ate. That was a conintuing problem. Mom recovered at Bickford from her broken leg.

Pet Friendly!

I am tickled to death with Bickford! They take animals. They're very pet friendly and I think pets are good for older people. My mother is not impressed with the food. She said they don't give much choice.

Where she was before, she didn't get involved in the activites. They had a person come in and do balloon animals and she knows something about that so she enjoyed that. She's in the hospital right now and she's looking forward to going back to Bickford.

When I visited I didn't tell them I was coming; I just walked in the door. They were very friendly and helpful. They even helped with getting mother's furniture from her house.

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.
