Bickford of Aurora

Assisted Living & Memory Care

Nothing can replace home. At Bickford of Aurora, we don’t ask you to give up your home, your treasures, your memories. Instead, we want you to bring the pieces of the home you love into ours and make it yours. Through personalized assisted living services, we invite you to share your stories with us, to see Bickford as an extension of your home.

Today we are celebrating Apple Betty Day! Apple Betty is a crustless apple pie seasoned with cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar. An apple brown betty is a common variation, which includes layers of sweetened breadcrumbs. We have chosen a variety of our own that INCLUDES CRUST.....because for some of us, (ME), crust is the best part!!! We used our kitchen in Mary B's to bake the delicious pie. It's days like these, when it's cooler and rainy that we don't mind being in the kitchen, we even kind of enjoy it...look at the smiles on these faces!
