The tropical tradewinds are blowing at Bickford today! Several residents and family members joined us for a Hawaiian lunch & Luau party! The weatherman cooperated with Illinois sunshine, and the warm family vibes of Bickford brought thoughts of Hawaii. We had a very tropical menu & coconut beverages, Hawaiian leis, & even played beach volleyball. The addition of ukelele music, combined with Magaritaville on the airwaves made the experience even better! When considering a home your loved one, won't you come check out our social calendar, fun slate of activities, and most importantly our warm family environment?
