Turn over is terrible. There is not even a director hired. I can't believe you are raising prices again!!! It's gone up 7,000. The past two years. Your already charging way more then the care you are providing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The memory care unit lounge is dark- needs more lighting. I haven't seen any activities being done with residents in memory care this last month. I come to visit once a week & dad is often still in his pajamas around noon, his hair isn't combed & often needs to be shaved. With that said, he has always been dry & staff is courteous to the memory care residents.

My Mother in-law had really bad cellulitis. We should have been notified sooner before she had to go to the hospital. There as also been a lot of turn over of staff.

Bickford is failing to deliver in basics-- like sanitation, meals, and AC on hot days. The staff NEVER came to fix an overflow toilet that was reported at 2:30 pm. We had to fix it ourselves and clean after 9 that night when we found out. Meanwhile my mom was stuck in that stench and no one did a thing. I should report Bickford to human services

Room cleaning issues. Bathroom hadn't been clean for 3 weeks. I had to clean it myself. Talked to staff about it and it was resolved.
