Description of Bickford of Wabash
Providing a welcoming place for Indiana seniors in need of assisted living services, Bickford of Wabash is committed to helping elderly residents retain their individuality and independence. Our small-town location just an hour outside of Fort Wayne offers a peaceful oasis close to retail, parks, medical facilities and the Wabash Country Club.
Bickford of Wabash is proud to be a branch on the Bickford Senior Living family tree. At Bickford, our operating philosophy is simply: enrich the happiness in the lives of our residents and create a workplace where our employees are recognized for providing exemplary care. With communities in nine states throughout the Midwest, we pride ourselves on being trusted by families to care for their loved ones.
True to our philosophy of enriching happiness, we offer a robust daily activities program to stimulate the mind, body and soul. Residents can make new friends during our happy hour, let loose at one of our dance parties or enjoy a rousing game of bingo. Our “Bickford Angels” volunteer program also allows seniors to make use of their unique talents, such as leading a yoga class, making music or greeting new residents.
We are also pleased to partner with Marketplace Ministries to provide complimentary, 24-hour chaplain services. Our full-time, non-denominational chaplain is on-site to lead regular church services, Bible Study groups and other spiritual activities. The chaplain is also available at any time to visit with residents in times of crisis.
At Bickford of Wabash, we want our residents to spend more time enjoying life and less time doing chores. This is why our staff take care of the housekeeping, linen changing, meal service, snow removal, landscaping, maintenance, security, and transportation to medical appointments and group outings. We can also arrange for pet care and laundering of personal clothing items.
Our certified caregivers are also available and on-site 24/7 to assist residents with daily life activities such as dressing, grooming, toileting, mobility and even managing medications. A full-time Registered Nurse is also on staff to oversee all care plans, monitor resident health and coordinate outside medical services, which includes access to a 24-hour pharmacy with daily delivery.
Seniors are invited to join us here at Bickford of Wabash and become a part of the Bickford family tree.
