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

My husband was at the Bickford, which was very nice other than it was a little dark inside. The staff was good, and the food was excellent. I was impressed with the fact that they really tried to get people involved in activities, were on top of medications, and kept track of health concerns.

Bickford of Okemos is a nice place. It had a memory unit in the building in a separate wing, but it didn’t seem like they would be able to keep my parents together. My dad would be in one part of the building and my mother in another. They had an apartment where there was a separate bedroom in the living area, but because of the way the building was constructed, one of the rooms didn't have outdoor lighting. When you walk into the living room off the hallway, there'd be a doorway into the bedroom, so the living room didn't have natural lighting, so it felt a little dreary in that respect. The facility seemed a little bit dated to me. They had a very good, qualified staff, and everyone seemed like they knew what they were doing.

Description of Bickford of Okemos


Welcome to Bickford of Okemos, one of Michigan's premier assisted living and memory care communities. Nothing can replace home–the smells that waft through the open door, the tattered edges of the overstuffed chair in the living room, the faded photographs on the mantle, the memories–lifetimes are built on these things and happiness dwells in them. At Bickford of Okemos, we don't ask you to give up your home, your treasures, your memories. Instead, we want you to bring the pieces of the home you love into ours and make it yours.
