Bickford of Grand Island

Assisted Living

Nothing can replace home. At Bickford of Grand Island, 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.

In reading my devotions today, I came across Ephesians 5:19 "Speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord" This reminds me of our philosophy at Bickford... the "Life Song's" of our residents! Each one of us has a Life Song that God has created! We are to be joyful and sing praise! I'm so incredibly thankful God included Bickford, my Bickford Family members and our residents and their families in my life song! Because it brings so much joy to my heart and for that I'm truly thankful!
