Bickford of Suffolk

Assisted Living & Memory Care

Nothing can replace home. At Bickford of Suffolk, 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.

EVMS Geriatric Sit Down Rounds - Great case study today with two medical students. These students presented a case regarding a recent 77 year old patient, with Dementia who lived at home with family, had multiple admissions to the hospital, issues with missing medical history information and no local neurologists. In the audience, were professionals working in the senior care industry to include doctors, PAs, nurses, geriatric care managers, home health/personal care professionals and professionals representing assisted living and memory care communities. The audience was asked to give recommendations that could have possibly changed the discharge outcome for this patient. This study presented an interesting discussion about how more education is necessary to ensure patients are discharge with all of the necessary resources.
