We had a great time this morning at Ladies Tea Time. We even had Ms. Judy’s sisters joined us. So many interesting women in this group and such good stories they have to share. From Real Estate and teaching to dental hygienist. Some shared travels and experience. They all had something unique to bring to the table! Love this time with them!

Since we ended up in Ft Madison we couldn’t pass up the opportunity for some Halls Ice Cream. The residents really enjoyed this little sweet treat

While out on our journey, we drove by the “new” state penitentiary. Needless to say they called and said we could keep Dean!!

Our trip ended with a short little nap for some. Was it the ice cream, the bus ride on a warm sunny day, my singing? Or could it be the commentary I gave along the way lol

When my mother calls for toilet assistance in the early morning (usually around 4-6 am), she wants just that: toilet assistance and then back to bed. She does NOT want to get up, get dressed and get in her chair. Some of the staff members ignore her and decide it's more convenient for them to do it all at once - no matter the time. I have requested multiple times for this behavior to stop! My mother doesn't go to breakfast and has no reason to be up that early. Furthermore she has difficulty sleeping at night and needs the extra sleep she gets in the morning. This happens so often that she's given up and usually doesn't even ask them anymore to let her go back to sleep. Not only are they disrespecting of her wishes but the additional time in the chair as opposed to the bed is contributing to the recurrence of the bedsores from her hospitalization we've worked so hard to eliminate. Please train all your staff people accordingly and let her sleep!

Bird cage area needs daily monitoring for cleanliness. The card table is frequently dirty and there is often a strong urine smell in the area. On the plus side thank you for making sure Mom has transportation to her volunteer position at the hospital gift shop

Hospice helping!

I feel Dad continues to do well at Bickford. I wish they could be included more with the outside interaction of entertainment whether it be music etc that comes to Bickford.

We have a list of things in recent months....much of which stems from turnover & we know that. The best things recently are (Name Removed) & (Name Removed). Mature. Conscientious. Compassionate. Here is what we see-- Labeled everything as suggested & this far we have lost all socks but 1; a blanket; a pillow; a laundry basket; etc. Aids do not leave footrests on Dad's wheelchair. His shower does not (did not) work. Our fobs have not worked right since we got them & we cannot get out of Mary B's many times. Aids sometimes do not have fobs to get out either & must call for help. You have some very good staff that we dearly appreciate, but some not so much. We feel fortunate to have hospice checking in as an extra set of eyes. We know DAd can be a pill at times, but his attitude has no bearing on any of the items mentioned.

Employees (some) do not show real care for people who need care!

Bickford Not sure what the procedure is to have my dad revealed on his level

Bickford has been good for Dad. I feel he has adjusted to his new area well. I worry though he doesn't drink enough on his own.

Know staffing for the service & hospitality industry is still an issue so can forgive some services like room cleaning being inconsistent, but I don't understand how the kitchen had no bread. No one could run to the nearby Hy-Vee or Walmart for sandwiches before meal service?
