Happy Luau Day from Bickford of Urbandale! We started the day by learning how to hula, finished the day with live music by Aaron Shoemaker, and enjoyed fresh fruit smoothies and seated volleyball in-between. Who said retirement is boring? Not us!

Last week was a busy one here at Bickford! Charles tickled the old ivories, Betty and Glada bonded over their love of babies, and we celebrated Hat Day! Even one of our four-legged residents joined in on the fun!

At the Des Moines Aging Consortium this week we learned quite a bit from the Iowa Board of Nursing. Remember to thank our Iowa nurses for all they do!

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

$120 to $180 per day. Range depends on the apartment you choose.

Care Rate

$30 to $130 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.
