HAPPINESS SURVEYS

Copy/Image 1a

At Bickford, your happiness is our measure of success.  We are constantly striving to enrich happiness in the lives of your loved one.  In order to understand whether or not we are achieving this objective, we rely on your consistent feedback through your participation in Happiness Surveys.  Happiness Surveys will be sent to you in two ways:

A comprehensive, multi-questions survey sent out starting September 6th and A one-question text Happiness Survey sent out monthly on the 1st of the month.  Bickford focuses on "Top Box" scores (5's) to differentiate between

happiness and satisfaction.  Bickford is not measuring on resident satisfaction; they measure resident happiness.  So if you and your loved one are highly satisfied (5's) please mark that box!  We appreciate the trust you put in us to take care of your loved one.  Thank you in advance for filling out the survey.  Your participation in these surveys provides us the feedback to ensure our efforts are improving your happiness with Bickford.

**Don't forget your flu shots when you visit your Doctor. Bickford does provide it if you need it and  you would like more information please see Kari or Kaylee.
