Recent reviews of Independent Living in Columbus, OH
Bickford of Worthington
5.0

The community has raised the price twice; one for COVID related and the other one being due to the increasing care of my loved one. On Bickford's website and Facebook page I've been lucky enough to see my loved one engaged in activities. I have a co-worker who I am encouraging to go to Bickford of Worthington for their loved ones.

I’d rate them very. The staff can’t be beat – they’re very friendly. I think they’re a little expensive. The manager of the place will bend over backwards to help people. They do have activities, but I don’t do much with them. It’s a small community. It’s pretty looking and prestigious.
