Bickford of Carmel
Not Listed
Assisted Living, Memory Care
Bickford of Carmel is a premier assisted living and memory care community that's located across the street from Founders Park. Established by the family of Mary Bickford, the community offers a pet-friendly, homelike environment with compassionate staff who treat residents like family while striving for excellence in professionalism. Residents can enjoy beautiful rooms that feature walk-in closets and walk-in showers, and delicious, chef-prepared meals are made from scratch and served three times daily. This single-story residence surrounds the central courtyard where residents can safely walk laps for exercise at their convenience.
What Residents are Saying:
Reviewers appreciate Bickford of Carmel's simple layout. One writes, "I like the physical layout. ... It was all on a single floor, kind of a rectangle around a central courtyard; so people could walk laps within the facility for exercise. People were more connected in a smaller environment compared to a two or three-story facility."
