    Bickford of Peoria was really nice. They allow pets and there's no weight limit. It was a very impressive and lovely place. The people seemed very charming and caring. The gardens were really great, and I think it's neat that they had a resident there that was able to make a garden. I met the chef, they served us desserts and the food was really good.

    I found Bickford for my mom. It's very clean, close to my home, and has everything we need for her. She has done exercise and bingo, and has had her hair done. They get three meals a day, laundry services, and transportation to doctor's appointments. The staff is caring and comes every day to remind her to go to dinner or lunch.

    Bickford of Peoria was good but pricier, and I didn't care for the location. I like that their facility and stays locked 24 hours, so the security was really impressive. I like the rooms and the activities they offered. Everybody I met that day was nice.

    Bickford of Peoria was very clean and very nice. The staff was extremely nice. They gave me a treat bag to bring to my mom, which was really nice. While I was there, they offered me a drink and dessert. They took their time and were really nice. It was a nice place. However, they did not accept Medicare and Medicaid. The dining area was nice and very clean. It was a good place. I enjoyed it.
