Nothing can replace home. At Bickford of Carmel, we don’t ask you to give up your home, your treasures, you memories. Instead, we want you to bring the pieces of the home you love into ours and make it yours.
Through personalized assisted living and memory care services, we invite you to share your stories with us, to see Bickford as an extension of your home. Bickford Assisted Living is designed for individuals who require assistance with the activities of daily living such as meal preparation, medication management, dressing and bathing. As a unique person, you deserve an individual approach to your care. You should be given choices based on your needs and desires. We encourage independence as much as possible, giving you the freedom to express your preferences.
You deserve to be treated with dignity and respect in regards to every aspect of your care, including protecting your privacy and nurturing your unique spirit. We don’t do care to you but for you and with you so that as your core needs are met, our compassionate care helps you to sustain the highest level of individuality possible. When we hear talk about memory care, generally the focus falls on the memory loss of the individual.
The reality, however, lies more in the loss of the individual. Lost somewhere inside the disease, too many beautiful people become disconnected with their life, their loved ones and themselves. Through our personal experience with Mary Bickford, we know firsthand the confusion memory loss creates in relationships with loved ones.
Because of the nature of memory loss, the moment becomes the pivotal factor in assisting our memory care residents. With Bickford Connections, through one moment at a time, we reconnect with them as an individual and we celebrate as we see them reconnect with life.
Nothing brings us more joy than helping them reconnect in their relationships to others and themselves. Every activity is intentional and personally driven by each individual’s life story.
Memory Care costs tend to be 20-40% higher than typical Assisted Living costs. $4,051 is the national monthly average cost of Assisted Living, as quoted by the 2019 Genworth Cost of Care Survey
