Holiday Cheer!

Copy/Image 1a

Hello Bickford Family,

I'm Roman, your new

Kitchen Manager. Some

of you may remember

me as the Assistant 

Director from when 

Tinley Park location

opened in 2016. What 

you may not know is I've

also been Kitchen 

Manager for Bickford

over 2 years in the past.

I look forward to putting

out some home cook

meals in the inviting

atmoshere that we

Copy/Image 1b

know as the "Bread 

Basket". I look forward

to rekindling all my 

relationships with past

residents and family

members but also

creating new friendships

and memories with all

the newer residents I

haven't met.

Feel free to stop by the kitchen and provide

feedback of how I can

make the "Bread Basket"

the best experience for

your loved one.

 

Have a wonderful day!

            Providing Toys And Smiles To Children With Cancer

We will be enriching happiness throughout our community this

holiday season by collecting new toys to a very well known charity:

           "The Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest Foundation"

The Treasure Chest Foundation currently serves more than 13,000

children and teens in Children's Cancer Treatment Center's across

the nation.

We are asking resident's, families, friends and Bickford Family Members who would graciously like to donate new unwrapped toys

for children this holiday season. We will be collecting toys up until

December 17th. There will be a collection box by the entrance doors. All donations are greatly appreciated. Thank You!
