Description of Bickford of Urbandale
Set in the city of Urbandale, Bickford of Urbandale offers assisted living and memory care for seniors in a laidback, homelike setting. With certified caregivers always on hand, our residents receive the assistance needed to remain active.

Bickford of Urbandale is proud to be a branch on the Bickford Senior Living family tree. At Bickford Senior Living, our operating philosophy is simply to enrich 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.
We believe our residents should feel at home, which is why we encourage them to bring their treasures and furry friends when joining our community. Residents enjoy the privacy of their own apartment, which has the convenience of a kitchenette and the safety of senior-friendly fixtures. Housekeeping and apartment maintenance is handled by us, freeing our residents to spend more time having fun.
Breakfast is made to order and home-cooked meals are always on the menu in The Bread Basket dining room, and for snacks between activities or a gathering over coffee, the Bistro is always open. When needing to host visiting family, residents are welcome to use the private dining room.
At Bickford of Urbandale, residents find every day filled with activities that are designed to nourish the mind, body and soul, whether it is a picnic at the local park, a dance party or an exercise class. But for afternoons when a good book is in order, the relaxing sunroom or library beckons. We also have a landscaped courtyard with walking paths when residents want to enjoy a morning stroll.
Maintaining the health of our residents is a priority, which is why every resident receives an individualized care plan when joining our community. An on-site Registered Nurse coordinates care between third-party providers, relieving our residents and their families of that worry. Supportive services, such as assistance with bathing, grooming and dressing is provided as needed.
Enriching the happiness and well-being of your loved one at Bickford of Urbandale is not just a promise but a guarantee.
