Community Reviews

Forwood Manor new resident move in reviewed by his son.

reviewed on: 09/05/2016 by Anonymous

All of the people at the facility are great. In general, my dad's "independent living" apartment on move-in day appeared good, freshly painted and maybe new carpet installed. I did find a couple of "big" things that needed immediate attention due to safety concerns. First, one of the hand rails in the shower/bathtub was actually very loose and the doors into and in the bathroom would significantly stick when closed (my dad almost fell over trying to open the linen closet on move-in day). There were also "little" things that the facility had missed in their final check. They did, however, take care of them right away. The food is great and the landscaping is great for walking my dad's little dog.

Excellent care! I call the staff mom's "Forwood Angels."

My mother has been in Forwood Manor for over 5 years, first in Independent Living and now in Assisted Living. The best thing about Fowood is the staff. My mother absolutely loves them, so of course I do too. I call them her Forwood Angels! Back when I could visit in person I enjoyed meeting the nurses and managers -- they are such caring people, and getting to know them gave me full confidence that mom was in the best of hands. I should add that Mom also LOVES the food. Lots of choices. And when she's too tired to go to the dining room for breakfast they bring it to her -- happily! During the Covid-19 pandemic I have kept in close touch with management and they have been meticulous in keeping mom safe. Of course it's sad that I can't visit her now, but at least I know she's safe and happy, and Forwood has facilitated zoom calls so that we can still see each other from afar. Thank you Forwood Manor for giving me piece of mind!

My review of Forwood Manor (Five Star Senior Living)

reviewed on: 06/30/2021 by anonymous

Our family had a virtual experience and it was a good experience. The team we worked with gave great information, it was down to this community and one other, but our loved one just liked the rooms at the other community more.

Safe but lonely

reviewed on: 08/25/2020 by Anonymous

We chose this community because of the activities provided and the food, but both have been impacted because of the virus. The room sizes are nice, my mother has two nice walk in closets. She ate here once before the shutdown and they served restaurant style. Now because of COVID, they deliver the food to her room. My favorite part about the community so far has been that they really try to create a community environment. They had a parade of antique cars come by and the staff did Christmas in July carols in the hallway. They are making an effort during the restrictions. I would recommend Forwood Manor.

Looked like a nice place!

reviewed on: 01/09/2015 by Anonymous

We toured this community when we were looking into senior living options for a loved one. This seemed like a very nice place, and it received a lot of praise from all of my family members who saw it. It was high end, but also one of the more expensive options that we saw.
