I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

We selected Bickford of Crystal Lake for my mother-in-law. It's small, homey, only one floor, and only 37 patients, and that's what she likes. The food is fantastic. They're all home-cooked meal. Everything you can think of, they have it there. They have a salon, a spa, manicures, a dining room, fireplace room, outside patio that is gorgeous for fires and barbecue, a sitting room with a big TV, movies for older people like I Love Lucy and generation movies, and a movie room. It's just a really nice place. It's expensive, but that's because it's assisted living. The staff are all just wonderful people. It just fit her perfect. They went to Lexington where my mom was, they talked to her, the nurse came in for the assessment and stayed with her all day, and she just really enjoyed them. She likes her room, she likes where she's at, and she's making the transition well, and I can be there every single day for her. They keep them entertained and they do everything for them. They have outings and ice cream socials. They just love it. What sold me was when I came in to take a look, we had lunch together. Nobody offered lunch or food anywhere else.
