Bickford of Raytown

Assisted Living

Nothing can replace home. At Bickford of Raytown, 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.

Our days have certainly been Merry & Bright this holiday season! We've been busy elves decorating Bickford house for the Holidays, making Christmas wreaths for our doors, visiting the Christmas lights at Longview Lake, and singing with carolers from Cleveland Avenue Baptist Church, the Raytown School district, and VanHorn class of 1990. Thank you to our volunteers and community members who have helped spread the holiday cheer this past week :)

Many got a chance to sing with Christine into the microphone - one resident was so happy to get the chance to sing "Over the Rainbow" she had joyful tears in her eyes! Everyone got various percussion instruments, and got to play right along with the performance - we even got to see some Bickford guests do some awesome swing dancing! Thanks Bobby & Christine, we look forward to jamming again with you in February!

Meet Jake, Bickford of Raytown's new Maintenance Coordinator. He got his start in 2008 during the housing crisis in Scottsdale, AZ. He spent his time there honing his craft before moving back to KC to manage and sell a series of residential properties including apartment complexes in and around the Country Club Plaza. His background in Asset Management and General Construction/Contracting makes him a great addition to our Bickford Family. Jake owns a cat named Hermione and enjoys playing the guitar. If you see him around the branch be sure to give him a hi-five!

April flowers brought May flowers and much much more at Raytown of Bickford! This month we welcomed several new Bickford Family Members to the team who are eager and excited to join the Bickford Family, and serve those we care for. Our residents enjoyed the performances of several talented Kansas City musicians this month including Dennis Bowen, Paul Reynes, Nick Gadbois, and Martha Haelht! We also enjoyed sailing the seven seas with our Cruise Day on April 12th, where we even got to dance with some Polynesian dancers! We're hoping for some warm weather this May so we can enjoy some afternoon strolls, and a weekly gardening club starting this month!
