I personally have not lived at Bickford house but i have visited the elderly that live there. It is a very lovely warm home for the older sect in our Area. I was empressed with the quality of the home. It is so well lit, and clean as well as not intimidating like a lot of senior homes/ The staff is very kind and responsible. I understand the meals are very good, fromtalking to the residents. Of course, there no place like your own homebut this is a close second.
