At Bickford, we can't "make" someone happy.  But we can create an environment that optimizes their opportunities to choose happiness and adds a richness to their lives.  We do this primarily through our care-giving approach.  Whether we are assisting them with their morning toiletries, taking time to listen to them during an emotional moment or throwing a birthday party for the party-lover, we seek to connect with everyone in ways that are uniquely tailored for them.  It becomes essential for us to know who they are—not because we have to but because we want to.
Everyone has their own unique tale to tell. We recognize the diversity represented by each story and wish to honor each person as truly individual. Yet there exists an element, a commonality among us on this journey. At Bickford, we've taken all of this into account as we've created the services we provide for our residents, our friends of the family.

Independence is as individual as each and every person. While Bickford Independent Living offers a wide-range of services and amenities from personalized apartments to restaurant quality meals, our genuine intent is to create an environment that eliminates the mundane and gives expression to personal choice. We want to know each and every person's unique life story so we can anticipate their desires and requests. Additionally, we provide an atmosphere of community, encouraging everyone to participate in the activities of their personal preference. We also provide the peace of mind that if an unanticipated need arises, we can offer the care required, including Assisted Living, if needed.
