Bickford of Grand Island

Assisted Living

Nothing can replace home. At Bickford of Grand Island, 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.

We are ready for some Spring weather! We painted our clay pots so that we can start planting our seeds for upcoming garden plans. We also have been enjoying getting out, when the weather allows us. Spring fever is here!

The second Tuesday of each month we host a Caregivers Support group here at Bickford. This month our featured speaker was, Ashley Drudik. Ashley gave us many tips on understanding and caring for those with Dementia. Ashley encouraged us to remember that just because your loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's/Dementia, that does NOT mean that great memories can't be made and that the laughter with your loved one is gone. We thank you Ashley for inspiring us to create good times and enjoy our loved ones at any stage of this disease.

With Presidents day coming up, I'd like to ask the question of, who was your President when you were born? I was born in June of 1963, and John F Kennedy was president. I had an opportunity many years ago to visit his grave site at the Arlington National Cemetery. It was an incredibly emotional experience. I was only a few months old when he was assassinated, yet felt such great loss for him. Arlington National Cemetery is an incredible place to pay your respects to those that have served our Great Country and gave the ultimate sacrifice. Watching the changing of the guards is very moving. Come join us on Monday, February 18 at 3 p.m. for Red White and Blue Ice Cream as we celebrate our Presidents!

Fall is upon us.... say what????? where did the summer go??? Having to say goodbye to the beautiful flowers in the garden is so hard for me! Working in the garden is my "Therapy". But as the leaves change colors, and the air is crisp and cool, it prepares us for the things to come. Hay rack rides, carving pumpkins with the grandchildren, the Scarecrow Patch, Decorating with the fall leaves and the smell of cinnamon and cloves ! God gives us each season to embrace, Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. Just like our lives, as a baby, toddler, teenager, young adult, adult and our senior years. God has a plan and a wonderful purpose for each of those seasons as well. My hope for you is that this season that you are in, You see the beauty that God has intended for you! Some seasons are real pretty, but keep your eyes on Jesus and be faithful for His plan for you! Enjoy this Fall and please come in and join us at Bickford for some amazing fun! Blessings to you! Deb

The last day of July! Say what?!?! The older I get the faster time seems to go. This has been an amazing summer so far at Bickford of Grand Island. Crystal and Rebecca and Brittney are gearing up with lots of crafting opportunities so our residents can enter their creations in the State Fair! We had multiple Ribbon winners for the Hall Co. Fair! Did you ever enter any of your projects in the County or State Fair? I did and I remember the joy when I saw the ribbons! I want to wish each of you and your families an amazing August 2018! Mid August will be my 4th year with Bickford and I can't imagine being any where else! Blessings to you all!
