On January 21st, 1948, Pat and Bud said "I do!" We are so happy to have been able to celebrate their 67th anniversary with them. "How did you do it?", I asked. "Love, and communication." Happy Anniversary! We love you, and are so happy to be part of your lives at Bickford!

Tuesday, December 16th we held our annual Family Christmas Party. It was full of food, fellowship, laughter, and tears. We had a marvelous time! I want to give a HUGE shout out to our incredible BFM's (Bickford Family Members) for their service and hard work to help pull off our party. Our job is not limited to provide the basic needs of a loved one's life, but to ENRICH them with love, laughter, and happiness. To give them meaning. And Tuesday was a wonderful way for us to showcase what we are all about. Dancing, hugs, laughter are just a few things we had on Tuesday. Here are pictures to show what an amazing time we had together!
