Customer Reviews

great experience

My dad was at Bickford for about a month There were no problems, the staff was friendly and the programs were interesting. From what I could tell, Dad had a great experience.

Don't go here

The worst customer service ever. I pulled my mother out of there so fast that they didn't know what was happening. I cannot believe the poor care and lack of concern they showed my 98 yr. old mother.

Met and exceeded our expectations. This is definitely at the top of our list as a home for our father. We were greeted as family upon arrival and it just continued from there. Bickford had everything our father needed to feel independent and safe.

Good tour of a modern facility. Staff very pleasant and helpful. A secure facility. Nice apartments for assisted living.

I can't say anything bad about them

Everything is going pretty well for my brother here. The staff is great; they’re friendly and knowledgeable. They seem to be taking good care of him. We go down to visit and he is always dressed and showered. The director, [Removed], has been really good with him. [Removed]visits my brother a lot, only my husband and I visit from time to time so my brother doesn’t get a lot of company, so he enjoys it when others engage with him. She is also very accessible, even through text message; she is there almost 24 hours I don’t think she ever leaves. They are very attentive to folks. He likes the food, which was the first hurdle because he’s a picky eater. They make it by scratch and they can make somethings on request. There is also don’t pressure us with moving him to permanent living. There is no signing a contract only a 30 days’ notice which I like. I really can’t say a bad thing about this place.

Nice, Family Setting

Bickford of Peoria is a bit of a smaller community, and the staff seems friendly and knowledgeable. I like that it seems like a nice, family setting. The food is also excellent here. They have some of the best meals my parents have had while being in one of these communities. There are so many activities here as well, at least two or thee events every day. It is also a very well maintained community. I would certainly recommend it to others.

Loved the place! It's about $500 more than our monthly joint net income! I'd have to find $500 more a month to pay and then live off savings. Neurologist said hubby is very advanced and has 2 yrs max. I'd spend an extra $50,000 from savings. Tough decision. Gave $500 refundable deposit. Small family owned...good feeling for the place!

Happy and comfortable

Bickford is a wonderful place for my mom. The atmosphere is a happy comfortable feeling. It is a smaller community and so the care is more one on one with the residents. The staff is so caring and calm and not frazzled. My mom has no complaints with the meals provided. There are plenty of activities that the staff encourages the residents to participate. My mom's room has a picture window where she has a view of flowers blooming on the lovely courtyard. They also have a sunroom to enjoy the surrounding well-kept grounds. I would highly recommend this community to others.

Good Care for Mom

We are happy with the care from this community. The staff is nice and caring. The community. They offer a nice menu. They offer activities for the residents who are able to participate. This was a nice environment that we would be happy to recommend for the care of a loved one.

So happy we found Bickford

I'm so thrilled we were able to get mom right in at Bickford. There were 3 rooms to choose from. I had been mom's sole caregiver since 2012 when I was forced into early retirement and before that time as well. God had a purpose for me and I wouldn't trade a second of caring for mom. We should have seen about assisted living a few years ago. I had a hard time coping with mom not being able live on her home alone and I was getting ready for hip replacement. I knew it was time and my brother and his family agreed. I stayed with her first 3 days/nights for her and so I could see how the staff responded to mom. Everything has been wonderful. Nurses come to assist with meds, shower, staff takes her to from meals (now she does on her own), she gets her hair done, attends church service, and has her laundry done. We can visit anytime we want. We can take her on family outings. Thankful for your help in leading me in the right direction.

Great manager, very outstanding & caring.

Care for Dad

I like the care for my father at this community for my father. The staff are caring and are willing to listen to suggestions from the residents on the menu. It's nice to see that they care enough. They offer a lot of good activities for the residents. We would recommend this community for other families.

Really Pleased with This Community Overall

It has been an adjustment process for my father with his move to this community, but overall I'am pleased with all they have done for us. The staff is wonderful, and the director has a great relationship with him. There are lots of activities available for the residents. Just recently he went on a nice field trip to the botanical gardens. I've had a meal. and the food is excellent. The community is very well maintained. I know he is safe, and in good hands at this community, and I would recommend it.

Comfort for mom!!

My mother is really enjoying the Bickford of Peoria. She is eating a lot better and the staff is good to her. I would recommend this place because they treat my mother well, and it feels more like a family home than a facility.

very friendly, bright, clean facility

Mother likes it!!

My mother really wanted a place that was closer to where she was at before but with a higher level of care and this community was perfect for that. The staff has been very good to her and very accommodating. She is happy with the meals and I think we made a good choice.

A tour with care

I toured this community. It was very nice and the choices of the room. Great floor plans and very clean in all areas. They have a lot of activities all weekend long. I was very happy with the staff who answered my questions on the types of care that are offered here. I recommend this community for other families to see what is offered for their loved one.

Excellent Place!!

Everyone in the community is very accommodating and make sure the needs of their residents are met. If something does need to be addressed they take notes on it and get it fixed. The staff are so wonderful and nice. The care for my father is great. The meals provided are also healthy and good for him.

Everything Is Going Good

I would give this community the highest rating, my father really enjoys it here. The community looks great and well maintained. The staff has been great to work with. They are very helpful and kind. There are many activities for him to choose from when he is ready to participate. He enjoys the meals, the food is really good. It has been a good experience and I would recommend it.

Food Needs Improvement

Well I know that they could definitely improve on their food. The menu that they have right now is just horrible. But that is the only major thing that I can think of right now that is plaguing the facility.

Care Is Just Excellent

I think that the nursing and the physical care is just excellent. My loved one there has had his needs changed and the nurse has been most attentive and is on it right away, which is extremely important for us. The overall atmosphere is just fine. It's a hard transition and I think that he likes the way he is being treated there. We do like the safety there too.

Mom moved in in August. The food is not very good and is usually cold. A lot of times no one answers the phone in the office. Is pretty pricey which is why she's moving in November. The weekend nurse sometimes forgets her meds.

We really like it.

We really like it. We had a hard time finding a good fit. We could not find another place that could accommodate for the needs we had. It was the only option we could find. They have been great. I have no complaints. I would say that they get a five.

Was pleased with how friendly the people are at Bickford. The facility is very clean and homey feeling. The staff that met with my family were very patient and willing to talk to us for as long as it took. Very helpful with getting mom moved in and helping with all the details. They always have time to talk if we have questions or a problem and work very hard to take care of things. Mom is settling in nicely and they check on her to make sure everything is ok. It is very hard to go through having to help a family member make these choices due to health issues and they are very compassionate and caring.

A safe and caring facility for Mom!

Very nice facility with a dedicated and caring staff. Most of the staff, LPN's and aides have been on staff at Bickford for most of the facilities existence. The show great patience in dealing and assisting my Mother who has dementia and I hve noticed the same level of care with other residence of the facility. They treat residence like family.

Beautiful, but we could never afford it.

It was a very beautiful place but too much money for mom. She would never be able to afford it. All the staff was very nice and it was just wonderful but mom just could never afford it.

Nice place, overall

Overall we've had a good experience with Bickford of Peoria! The staff are friendly, caring people, and they take good care of the people who live here. The facility itself is a nice place, and always well kept and clean. The only issue we've had is that sometimes it can be a little hard to get a hold of them on the phone.

Very nice place!

So far things have gone very well with Bickford of Peoria! It is a nice looking, nice smelling, clean, well kept community. The staff are friendly, and they're very attentive to the needs of the residents, they respond quickly to call buttons, and they're just very compassionate in general. I also thought that the sales staff that I worked with were very friendly and professional! This place was a big step up from the previous community we had been using, and my loved one really seems to enjoy herself here!

lovely place

My mother is legally blind and can't hear very well either, so it is understandably a difficult situation to get her acclimated and involved. But the staff at Bickford of Peoria have really gone out of their way to help my family with our predicaments. They have been very accommodating, and are always on top of any issues. Bickford of Peoria truly is a lovely place and we are very thankful for it!

Our choice

nurses were out helping residents, lots of activities.nice room sizes.

It wasn't warm and welcoming.

Bickford is attached to an Alzheimer's wing, and so the doors are locked and there was no easy access. I came a little early for my tour, but the doors were locked when I got there, and there was nobody at the desk, I didn't see any staff around. It was very dark inside, dark wood, and hunter green. It was a newer facility, and the apartments were nice, but it wasn't warm and welcoming.

My Grandmother moved back home on Dec...

My Grandmother moved back home on December 15, 2013. She did not have a good experience at Bickford. She is independent with her knowledge but needs help physically. They treated her as though she was incompetent. As a retired City Treasurer of Peoria, Illinois she did not take this well. We eventually had to call corporate to get her billing and Long Term Care straightened out and she has been home with home care.

Wonderful experience at Bickford.

My mother has Alzheimer's disease and could no longer care for herself. We were able to get her in immediately and the care she receives is outstanding. She loves all the caregivers there and is safe in her own surroundings. I am worrying less and getting more rest knowing she is well cared for.

The facility is nice, but I...

The facility is nice, but I saw no interaction with any of the residents. The rooms were fine, but seemed cheaply made. Prices were much higher than other facilities with less amenities.

So far so good

Our family has been able to visit and I think they liked it a lot. Our loved one had a chance to try a couple of meals while visiting and seemed to like them really well. It seems like a clean place with a friendly staff.

It’s been a very good experience for them.

It’s been a very good experience for them. The staff has been very helpful and supportive. I had a chance to try the food and it is very fine. I think they offer a wide variety of care services. The head nurse is very helpful , arranging tests and doctor’s services.

They are a good community and we are pretty happy with them.

They are a good community and we are pretty happy with them. They are all very expensive and this is about the same. The food is pretty good, but the laundry has come up missing a few times. All in all, other than the laundry, we don't really have any complaints.

Twice as expensive as needed. Very b...

Twice as expensive as needed. Very beautiful and well-staffed.

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.
