Bickford of Urbandale – Reviews
We have been extremely satisfied with the care that Bickford of Urbandale has provided. It is a home atmosphere with a lot of activities for the residents and good communication with the families.
It was a great place they treated my mom great the staff was friendly they asked how we was doing you couldnt ask for a better place
Considering that we had to get my grandmother into memory care on extremely short notice in 2015 and really had no choice as to where she would go at first, we are so grateful that she ended up at Bickford. The staff has been so caring, right up to the end. The food was good, there were lots of activities to engage her and she was loved. A heartfelt thank you to the staff. 🙂
My grandmother is at Bickford of Urbandale for several months now. Theyre great. Its nice and clean. Its welcoming and homey. It was the best out of everything I looked at. The people are always friendly. Care of the elderly especially when they have their mind of their own is difficult, but I think theyre doing a great job. I cant say its perfect, but Im not dissatisfied.
Great staff, great environment, provided Grandmother lots of TLC last 9 years of her life
Bickford of Urbandale was very nice. The rooms looked good. They had a little game going on when we were there. The dining area looked very nice and clean. They had transportation activities, games, and the standard assortment of things that I would expect.
I liked Bickford of Urbandale because it was small and seemed more personable. When I was there, a musician from their generation had died, so they were listening to his music and singing songs from the era. They were talking and discussing current events in the news. The lady who gave the tour was very thorough. She only showed me one room because I think that was all they really had. I didnt stay for lunch, but they told me that everything was handmade.
What wonderful and caring people that I am so confident having chosen this center for my mom! And even more important, she is surrounded by a great group of people that share life stories, photos and happy moments! I am grateful for a facility like Bickford when there are so many others that don't live up to my high standards. I can say that because I own a flower shop and deliver flowers to many facilities where I've witnessed firsthand people languishing in the autumn of their lives without attention and even minimal care. Again, I am grateful to Bickford for their high principles and ethics!
Bickford of Urbandale was an older facility but still very nice. The staff was great, very pleasant and knowledgeable. When I was there, it was lunch time so I could not tell you their activities but I know they have quite a bit of activities. The dining area was very nice. They were doing some remodelling while I was there.
Bickford of Urbandale was the best. It was a very nice place. I liked that as they were giving me a tour, they were saying hello by name to the residents, and everybody seemed to be like a family. The rooms were all nice, but all of them were small. I suggested to my aunt that if she decides to come back here, this place would be a good one. The staff was very friendly, including the manager, the physical therapist, and the janitor. They were all nice people. I saw the dining area, and it was also nice.
We choose Bickford of Urbandale for my parent. Part of the reason is that it has a reasonable price. It has a very homey atmosphere, and the staff seems to be very active. She is there for a couple of months, and they turn out to be a homey community with active and very caring staff. The food seems to be very good. Everything seems to be fine. They have a little beauty shop there. They have everything that she needs, and they have activities.
I visited this facility looking for a place for my mother - soon after I moved her in. I'm so happy I found a place like Bickford for my mom. I know she is safe and happy there. The staff are so responsive and kind. I'm really happy I picked Bickford of Urbandale.
I visited Bickford of Urbandale, and this facility is very, very nice. We liked it. We had a nice lunch there, and the food is good. We saw several different types of rooms, and they were fine. This facility is pretty convenient for us. The staff was very cordial and wanted to know if they could do anything for us. We also had a nice visit with the director. They have activities, and, in fact, they were having a band or something the day we went there. Overall, I think it's very homey.
I had a visit at Bickford, and I like this facility a lot. The place is really clean and the staff are very attentive. They seemed to have really good activities, but it was very expensive. Another thing about this facility is that when my mom's funds run out, she would have to move to another place because they wouldnt accept state or federal funds.
While in Iowa, we stopped in on the spur of the moment to see the Bickford of Urbandale while searching for an assisted living facility for our aunt. The staff was happy to show us around, despite the fact that we didn't have an appointment. The grounds around the main door were nicely kept, with flower beds and nicely manicured grass. The interior was inviting and we could smell fresh flowers. The entire décor was quite nice and fresh. They had many scheduled and non-scheduled things to do - from reading to games, discussions, and other stimulating activities. The dining areas were nicely designed and warm. The food looked deliciously prepared, as well as nutritious. The dietician and chef changes up the menu to keep it interesting and encourage resident to make suggestions. The residents are encouraged to enjoy physical activity as much as possible. They may take exercise classes such as yoga and aerobics, or use the weight training and other equipment. They may also enjoy the outer walk ways around the building and courtyard. The private rooms were decorated tastefully with a homey, light and airy atmosphere. Each unit has nice views of the surrounding area. Bathrooms were designed with safety seats and rails. The seniors here really enjoy living here - that was plain to see. The staff is kind, caring and very attentive to all of their needs, whatever they happened to be.
