We care for residents in the same way we meet the needs of our loved ones at home. Whether it is cleaning, cooking or caring – we are willing to do whatever it takes. Our family of caregivers brings a great love to whatever it is that we do.

Whatever It Takes

Our Employees are Family

When you think of your personal experience in being a part of a family – what thoughts and feelings arise in you?

Abandonment? Insignificance? Brokenness?
Love? Gratitude? Restoration?

At Bickford, we’re your work family - this is a role we take seriously. Many times people spend just as much (or more) time at work than at home and that is why our family is important. Whatever your experience has been with “family” in the past, we’re committed to making this family what it should be. Just like every family we’re not perfect, but we’ll never give up trying. For in the end, it’s family that matters most.

Our Core Values

Being in the happiness business requires more than just performing our chores. We have found that just meeting residents’ needs is not enough. In fact, how we make people feel while meeting their needs is just as important, actually a bit more important.

We’ve learned that there is a certain set of values and corresponding behaviors that lend themselves to making residents feel good while receiving our services. We call these our Core Values.

Family Culture

Be a part of our family where you're cared for and cared about.

From the beginning our caregivers were chosen by asking ourselves one simple question - “Can I trust you with my mom?”

We still ask this question today as you’re not caring for just anyone, you are caring for someone’s Mary Bickford.
