Assisted Living & Memory Care

Nothing can replace home. At Bickford of Portage, 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 and memory care services, we invite you to share your stories with us, to see Bickford as an extension of your home.
