The Bickford Story
Our beloved mother and grandmother, Mary Bickford, had a way of splashing joy about her, spilling it into the lives of everyone she met.
After she was diagnosed with Alzheimers, she needed more assistance than our family could provide.
We were shocked at the lack of suitable options: They all offered too much or too little care,
and nothing felt like home.
We couldnt find anywhere that deserved someone as special as Mary Bickford, so we decided to create that place.
We wanted to give back to her all the life, love, and happiness she had given us.
In November 1992, Bickfords first branch one of the first assisted living residences in Kansas
became Marys new home.
