I would not recommend Bickford of Omaha - Hickory. If your parent doesn't have any issues at all, then it might be fine. They call themselves a memory care unit, but they don’t want to deal with a resident who maybe can’t find his way into his own room and wanders into other rooms. They’re burdened by if you’re parent would have an accident or any case of incontinence. They’re very willing to take in residents because they want them, but then they’re not very engaging with the clients, trying to distract them, or keep them busy. There isn't a full-time nurse on the staff. The rooms were nice, and the food was good. They’re just not equipped to deal with issues that dementia patients have, even though they say they are.
