Community Reviews

Good and attentive staff

reviewed on: 10/23/2015 by Anonymous

The people that work there are very good and they are attentive. When my Mom was moving in they did not complete a lot of construction items. There seemed to be a lack of communication between the construction staff and the sales team. There is also supposed to be a service where the services of a Nurse Practitioner are offered, but this person never answers voicemails, so that needs to be worked on.

I'm glad I went with The Forum

I don't have experience with a lot of places so it's hard for me to rate The Forum. It could be worse but it could be a little better. There are comments from some of the residents who are quick to criticize and there is the head nurse who threatens to move you to assisted living. The nursing staff is somewhat agressive to make sure you're completely independent. My mother, who had a stroke, wore sneakers into the dining room and it took less than 4 days for someone to criticize her for that. That is not apporpriate. This place had a good reputation and it was quite convenient for my family. We started off with my mom in skilled care and my dad in independent living. My mom was basically sitting by herself in a room with no therapist for 3 days so we moved her to the independent apartment and arranged for our own 24hr care. I think it's very well maintained and they're good people. The mainentance and the front desk people were pleasant and helpful but in delivering the care you might need to be your own advocate. I'm glad I went with The Forum.

This is very much like the community ...

This is very much like the community where she is now in Ohio. This would work, but I think it might be too big.

I Highly Recommend the Forum

reviewed on: 03/29/2015 by Pam Arceneaux

My mother was a resident of the Forum at Memorial Woods for 25 years. She was actually the first resident there. She moved there primarily because of the location but also it appealed to her that there were many levels of care. She moved into the Independent Living in 1990 and lived there until 2013. At that time she moved into the Assisted Living. The director of the facility, Madeleine was amazing. She gave me her cell phone number and took care of any concerns I had. The Assisted Living facility was a lovely place. However, I thought it was a little bit too isolated for my mom. She needed more interaction. That was totally my mistake for not encouraging her to move when she had a little bit more independence. I believe if she had moved there a couple of years earlier she would have been able to get connected easier with the other residents and staff. Her stay at the Assisted Living facility was only for 6 months. Madeleine called a Family meeting and explained to us that my mom needed more care than was offered at the Assisted Living facility. I reluctantly moved her to the 4th Floor of the Memory Care unit. Please note it is always going to be a difficult transition and I HATED leaving Madeline. But she assured me that the Director of the Memory Care would take care of my mom just as well. Her name is Liz and she did not disappoint. Again, she gave me her cell phone and was available to me for any questions or concerns. If you are reading this, you already know that taking care of a loved one and making decisions about care and living arrangements is extremely difficult. However, the ratio in the Memory Care unit is very small and the doors to the rooms are left open (unless the resident prefers them to be closed) At this stage in my mother’s life this was very comforting because she was becoming lonely and afraid. In this unit she had many of the staff members coming and going and staying with her. Please know, I am a little high maintenance, ask many questions, and expect high quality care. My mother was almost completely blind the last years of her life. The director, Liz was extremely kind-hearted, patient, and made sure my mother was always comfortable in her new home. I can honestly say my mom’s stay at The Forum for the entire 25 years was very pleasant. When she could no longer take care of herself, the staff always kept her room clean and her personal hygiene was immaculate. Also, the staff would always encourage my mom to take part in the activities. I would recommend the Forum without hesitation – especially if Madeline and Liz are the Directors.

They have done an excellent job.

They have done an excellent job. It was clean and the staff were very friendly. They were attentive and on top of things, and very good at keeping in touch with me. I was very impressed with The Forum and their memory care. I wish I had him here all along.
