Bickford of Davenport

Assisted Living & Memory Care

Nothing can replace home. At Bickford of Davenport, 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.

When someone says "annual Meeting" they might imagine an uncomfortable room with charts and graphs, where attendees are slumped in their chair and un-engaged. But Bickford gives that term a whole new meaning! Because we treat everyone like family, we call our annual meeting, Family Reunion, and it is everything it is cracked up to be! Lots of fun, engaging activities, and of course we do throw in a little learning. Family Reunion is a time of fellowship and engagement, bringing the Bickford Family together for a time of renewal. One of the fun things we do at Family Reunion is celebrate those Bickford Family Members that go above and beyond at the Pearl Ceremony. I am pleased that in my division, this year we have a BFM up for 6 of the 7 categories! Congratulations to Macomb Kitchen Manager of the Year nominee, Shawn Carroll; Marion BFM of the Year nominee Mike Merchant; Burlington RNC of the Year nominee Teddie Rinehart; Iowa City/Marion CRD of the Year nominee Holly Blood; Cedar Falls Director of the Year nominee Natalie Feldman; and the entire team in Cedar Falls for their Branch of the Year nomination. Michelle and I had a lot of fun surprising them all with a "pearlposal" inviting them to the Pearl Ceremony held in February at Family Reunion. Congratulations to all nominees, you all are very deserving!

Whatever it takes! With Snowmaggedon 2018 in full force, your loved one is in good hands! Have no fear, our caregivers have done whatever it takes to drive, ski, or sled in to work. Caregivers across the Midwest prepared for the worst and came to work early, stayed over extra hours, shoveled snow, cooked breakfast, and most importantly kept the branch running smooth and residents safe and warm. We have an assistant director remain at her branch for 42 hours. 2 caregivers came in Sunday morning, and stayed through the day and night to ensure cares were provide. Caregivers have helped others with rides to work. One branch provided air mattresses, blankets and pillows for those stranded at work. Caregivers hitched rides with 4 wheel drives and snow plows. A branch without power moved all of their residents to the living room near the fireplace to stay warm. Doing whatever it takes, happily, for our residents. Stay warm and safe, your loved one is.

Meet our Life Enrichment Coordinator, Amanda!! Amanda grew up in Rock Island, and as soon as she could ran to Iowa to get away from her five younger siblings! While growing up she played ASA softball and traveled around to different tournaments, coming up with creative ways to grab attention and laughter from others around her. Before she found her passion for enriching the lives of others, she worked in sales and customer service. Amanda says she "adopted" her husband, Chris, and settled down in Davenport where she recently added their fur baby Stormi. When Amanda isn't working, she is spending time with her family, enjoying life and the wonderful people around her.

Exciting News!!! We will be going through a complete remodel in the next couple months. This will include paint, new flooring, and new furniture. We have a company coming Monday, August 6th to start the painting. They plan to remove the columns in the dining room, which will open up that area. They are lowering the wall in the sun room, which will be nice to see outside and brighten up that area. Flooring is scheduled in September and the furniture in October. There will also be new window treatments. Please bear with us during this transition.

Pay backs are.....WONDERFUL! As I was sitting in the sun room at the Cedar Falls branch working away, Miss Julianna stopped by and gave me a quick shoulder massage! Boy, did that feel nice! I love sitting in that spot as residents often cut through the courtyard on their way to a meal or activity, so it is a great opportunity to stop and visit, check in with them, or see how their day is. Not to mention an occasional rub down! Of course, I had to offer to pay her back, which she gladly accepted. As the old saying goes....you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours!
