Happy  New Year Bickford Families!

Copy/Image 1a

Thank you everyone for inviting us into your families!  It is such an honor to care for your loved-one, and I know I can speak for us all when I say, "Yes! It is hard-work and for that, we love every minute of it!"  

In a few days, a new year will begin.  Each month you will get text reminders asking you how satisfied you are with Bickford.  I encourage you to voice your concerns if something needs to be done better; but also let us know when we are really deserving a high-five!

An area we are working on in 2019 is preserving resident privacy, including decongesting the area around the med room.  We look forward to this challenge and have a head start, so we hope you've seen improvements.  

Soon, I will be mailing information about savings you can achieve by sending us friends or families that need assisted living too!  

Your referrals mean so much to us, and there's nothing better than getting a neighbor who's already a friend :)  

Robin :)

Drum roll, please!! We have another exciting announcement! Our sweet, caring and talented Shauna Carroll has been awarded Bickford's Kitchen Manager of 2018! Only two branches receive this admired title! She will attend the company-wide ceremony, called the Family Reunion, in February with Robin, in Kansas City. We are so proud of you Shauna! This is a well-deserved award!

January BFM Spotlight

Copy/Image 3a

A few months ago we mentioned having a new maintenance coordinator, but let us formally introduce you to him! We are pleased to have Andre Usinger as a part of our Bickford Family. Let us share a few tidbits about him with you. 

Some of Andre's favorites include; color-green, food-steak, movie-Star Wars, musical group- Presidents of the USA, and his favorite childhood show was He-Man.

Andre gets inspired by being able to make others happy.

When asked to describe himself in 3 words, he replied; polite, humble & diverse. Andre, we couldn't agree more! His proudest accomplishment is building a cabin in the middle of the woods. A hidden talent of his is being a master gardener, we will keep this in mind when summer approaches!

Andre's favorite thing about Senior Living is, "The interactions I have with residents, the smiles on their faces, the stories they have to tell." 

Make sure you say hello to Andre the next time you stop in!
