Bickford of Omaha - Hickory

Assisted Living

Nothing can replace home. At Bickford of Omaha Hickory, 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.

Thank you for calling Bickford Assisted Living, this is Candice. How can I help you? Sound familiar? For many of you who call into our Branch this is the voice you hear on the other end of the phone. Candice is our Administrative Assistant who aims to assist! Answering the phone, ordering supplies, trouble-shooting office machines, scheduling applicant interviews, submitting invoices for payment, communicating with Bickford friends and family members are just small pieces of what Candice does each and every day. Candice exemplifies the Bickford Core Quality of CURIOSITY! You’ve heard of the saying “curiosity kills the cat”, well this is our Candice! She diligently keeps at a task until a solution is found. We are so lucky to have her as part of the Bickford Family! MEOW!

Being the Director of Bickford Assisted Living brings so many smiles to my heart! Today, as I was in my office working away, I heard music coming from the livingroom. I peaked my head out to see what was happening. I saw one of our sweet residents (who by the way is 98 years old!) sitting at the piano, and our RN Cindy gathering a few other residents to join in on the impromptu sing-a-long. I never knew Cindy could sing!! It was one of those special enriching happiness moments that reminded me again why I love working at Bickford! Take time each day to stop and enjoy the moments that bring happiness to your heart, and also take time each day to bring happiness to the hearts of others. Hope you have a HAPPY DAY!!
