I visited this facility
Bickford of Rockford was very nice. Their room was the biggest we saw out of any of the facilities we visited. It was laid out really nicely. It would be perfect for my parents. They had a movie and some activities upstairs when I was there. There's plenty to do. The staff was very experienced and there for quite a while. It's a nice environment and the employees seemed happy.
I visited this facility
Bickford of Rockford was very dark. The entrance itself was not very inviting. However, the lady who did the tour was extremely nice. She was a lovely person, and she did a very nice job. I found the whole residence to be very dated. It was clean but not tidy. The dining room was on the inside of the building and it didn't have any windows. I didn't like that. The one-bedroom apartment was quite small, dated, and not very inviting. The staff also showed me a two-bedroom apartment. Basically, the footprint was very nice. It would work very well for us; however, it was not clean and was very cluttered.

I Visited This Facility
Bickford of Rockford was too fancy for my mother. It was a gorgeous place, and I have nothing bad to say about it. The staff was very friendly, outgoing, and seemed very helpful. The apartments were very nice with a big living area that's separate from the kitchen. Most of the residents were in their rooms, and I did not see a lot of socializing.
