Annual Survey's Coming Up!  

Copy/Image 1a

Autumn is rapidly approaching, which also means we are getting closer to our Annual Surveys to be sent out. Be watching your mailboxes and/or e-mail, as surveys will be mailed out within the next few weeks.

Here at Bickford, we strive for all 5's. So please let us know what we may do better to help accomodate your loved ones, so that you are able to give us that score we strive to achieve! If you do have any questions, comments, or concerns, before filling out the surveys, please give our Director, Robin Wike, a call & she

would be happy to meet with you!

Also coming up on the 20th, we will be celebrating our monthly Pearl's Passion Event, Decades Day! Feel free to pop in and see us that afternoon, as we will be having a musical performance by 50s Central Standard Time. I'm also working on putting some old hot-rods together for a small car show that day.

Summer breezed right by us here at Bickford, but I know that many residents, as well as myself are excited for fall. Bring on cool nights, blue jeans & comfy sweatshirts :)

BFM's Receive Black Pearl Awards

Copy/Image 3a

Everyone please join me in congratulating Cheryl McGowan, Megan Dodge and Ashley Stickler on being named this year's Black Pearl's!  

This is a distinguished award, as it highlights those Bickford Family Members who continually go above and beyond each day to enrich happiness.  

This year, we had everyone cast votes for who the best candidates were, and unsurprisingly, we had several BFM's nominated! This tells me we have wonderful team work and comradery.

Cheryl has been with Bickford a little over two years & is known for her caring & her ability to just go wherever the need is!

Megan has been with Bickford almost two years now and is known for her versatility.  She knows the ropes as a caregiver, housekeeper, cook and is now enrolled in the LPN program at SRC.

Ashley has been with Bickford 5 years & shows consistent leadership on the overnight crew and is very eager to be flexible with her schedule to accomodate our residents needs.  

We are so proud to have them here with us!
