Hello to all our past, current and future Bickford family members! We want to remind you that we are here for you.... whatever it takes!! Did you know we offer respite stays?! We offer short term respite care ideal for seniors in transition who would benefit from personal assistance, dietician overseen meals & active socialization with friends! This could be for you for many reasons - seniors that require additional recovery time, a temporary residence while family is on a vacation, during these most uncertain times we’re dealing with right now or even to “test out” Independent Living, Assisted Living or Memory Care before making a permanent decision. You or your loved one can join our family in a homelike environment that promotes safety, security & peace of mind! We have immediate availability for respite stay! Please contact me (Kelly) at 815-351-1746 for more information today!!

“Happy Opening Day” From Bickford!! Much like this quote from Babe Ruth - our stars (BFM’s) continue to play together!! Truly a Family!! “The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime”. ~ Babe Ruth

Calling all Rosie the Riveters! We have been receiving questions from people on how they can help our Branches. If you have basic sewing skills, you can help out. We've attached instructions to what we believe to be the best masks that an individual can produce. They have four layers of fabric for better protection. By no means are they medical grade or meet industry requirements but they are a good option when supplies are limited. If you are capable to produce some masks, please let us or your local Branch know. We could sure use the help. And if you're up for it ... after making some masks, send us your best Rosie bicep flex!

The process of finding a place for your loved one is hard enough, we’re here to make it easier. To help you navigate this change most effectively we remove the barriers and give you what you really want - pricing first!

Base Rate    +    Care Rate    =    Real Rates

Base Rate

$95 to $260 per day. Range depends on the apartment you choose.

Care Rate

$20 to $100 per day. Range depends on the care and services needed.

Community Fee of $250 per month for ten months.

It’s that easy.

Whether or not our pricing fits in your budget, we ask you to consider 4 things:

  1. Know that there may be financial resources available that you might not be aware of.

    To explore this, take advantage of our complimentary third-party financial concierge service – Elderlife Financial
  2. Know that our rates are all-inclusive*.

    Don’t forget our rates include meals, care, activities, basic utilities, housekeeping, linen and laundry service, and more! All-inclusive details.
  3. Know the affordability of senior living.

    Many families are surprised at the affordability of senior living as compared to what they are currently spending at home. Check out our Expense Worksheet to compare for yourself.
  4. Remember what matters most.

    While there are many things you should buy at a discount, care isn’t one of them.

It is easy to say that we do whatever it takes to make our residents happy, but the real question is – are our current residents actually happy?

Read below to find out how happy our current residents and families really are.
