The residents are thoroughly enjoying the Winter Wonderland we have created for them. Our "little" residents have taken over and have found the most comfortable place to rest.
Lots of activity happening here in Muscatine this time of year, we have been welcoming many groups from our community to entertain us with playing the bells and singing Christmas Carols. What a wonderful place we live to experience all the joys of this Holiday Season, we are truly blessed!
We would love to have you visit this week to see the children sing for us!
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here! The residents and staff have been decorating all weekend and we're not done yet! The ladies really enjoyed helping decorate the tree in the dining room!

Great turnout at our Family Council Meeting last night! Our place was full of fun and laughs with new Residents and their families meeting all their new friends. We filled our bellies with chili and yummy pumpkin bars. I am very thankful for the families that always participate and welcome new family members, it sure warms our hearts. Big thanks to our wonderful BFM's who volunteered to help with this event, we appreciate all that you do! Happiness Survey results were discussed and we are happy to say the results showed great improvement!! GO TEAM!
Wow! We are having a wonderful time here at Bickford Muscatine!! We are very busy with all the activities this time of year is bringing. Fall is a beautiful season and we have been taking full advantage of the seasonal activities. Our Residents are enjoying all the decorating and baking.
Halloween brought many ghosts and goblins for trick or treating and parade. The children were a big hit!
We are excited for November and all the festivities we will be hosting. Check back soon for details!!
Stop in and say hello, we would love to visit with you!
