Memory Care

Nothing can replace home. At Bickford of Lafayette, 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.

I hope everyone enjoyed Easter Sunday! Especially with the snow! Certainly, Mother Nature does have a sense of humor. Snow on April 1, April Fool's Day!? Welcome to Indiana. I can appreciate the humor, I guess. Over the weekend, our residents kept busy. Jen Hodge, QMA, led a tie-dye t-shirt activity on Saturday. Really, I have not ever had any design luck with the tie-dye technique. But, WOW!! You should see these tie-dye designs!!! The color choices and designs are fashionably unique! Easter cupcakes were creatively made with lots of love, too. Our residents assisted in every task, including adding coconut and green food coloring to the icing, putting the icing on and adding jelly beans to make a nest. Additionally, Jen's family joined our residents and decorated eggs & baskets. Happily, our residents filled plastic eggs with candy and hid them, too. Jen's son, age 2 1/2, hunted for the eggs, with an abundance of energy and excitement! A big THANK YOU to Jen and her family!
