Each of our Branches becomes a distinct reflection of those who reside there. We invite them to share their stories with us, to see Bickford as an extension of their home. We strive to preserve those precious memories while creating new ones for our friends. We invite you to come by Bickford Assisted Living of Lafayette or call us at 765-477-0770 to schedule a tour.

The Bickford Family Tree A tree is a thing of strength, beauty and life. All that we do and all whose lives have become intertwined in our purpose can be found in the Bickford Family Tree. And every tree begins with a seed. For the Bickford Family Tree, Mary Bickford was the Seed. At the Foundation, our Tree began with our Foundational Belief, "Created to care for our family, devoted to serving yours," Because of her life, we saw the other "Mary's" out there and dedicated our lives to reaching out to them.

Congratulations to Bickford of Lafayette for placing in the top quartile of Bickford’s annual Enriching Happiness Survey! The Enriching Happiness Survey was created to give our Friends of the Family a chance to tell us what they like and what we need to improve on. After each survey, we transform ourselves by working with our families to create an agenda to improve targeted areas together. Bickford focuses on "Top Box" scores to differentiate between happiness and satisfaction. On a typical 5-point satisfaction scale, this means calculating the percentage of those who say they're highly satisfied (5's) instead of showing the overall average score. We compare ourselves to the high standard of Top Box scores, so that we know that we have more than satisfied residents – we have residents whose happiness has been enriched. Congrats to Bickford of Lafayette for enriching our residents happiness!
