I visited this facility
Bickford Senior Living was off the scale, but we couldn't afford them at like $4,000 and up, but it's a beautiful place. Even the type of people there were more middle to upper class. We had the interview with them in a formal dining room, and we were talking, listening, and observing, then they told me the price and how it works. They start at $3,000-4,000. The layout of the community was beautiful, and the workers were great. I saw one person interacting with a group of residents, and the first one I saw was the director. The dining room was beautiful, and it was more like a closed off formal dining room. Maybe it was after their mealtime, but it was not set up that way. It seems they're eating at a particular time. The place looked clean and it was decorated nicely. It's nice.
