3 starsreviewed on: 05/18/2015 by Anonymous
I did have one concern. We're finding out that my mother needs meals and they said we have to sign up ahead of time. We realized it wasn't good for us. I wasn't too happy about that. We are going address that to them this week. Other than that, The facility is very clean. The residents are friendly and welcoming. My overall rating of this property is 3 stars. I hope they are able to resolve this concern.
Good facility--a few lessons learnedreviewed on: 08/18/2015 by Anonymous
We had trouble getting the phone connected. AT&T was delayed by several days-but it turned out that Forrest Ridge was the cause of the non-connection. Would recommend that the phone wiring be checked ahead of time if moving a senior into this facility. There seems to be a disconnect in providing 'introductory assistance' to new residences. We were hoping that our Mom would have been guided by either a staff member or a current resident to help her find out the activities and amenities offered here. Maybe offering a DVD showing the facilities and locations within it would be helpful. The room is fine, clean and all appliances were working well. Would recommend having a microwave option for residents. The grounds are well kept and secure. Some of the residents apartments are quite a walk from the dining room and lobby. For people that have trouble or need assistance walking, would recommend the use of cane and walkers.

My loved ones live at the Forest Ridge. They haven't used the services yet but they have been very happy here. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. My overall rating of this property is 4 stars. I rate the cleanliness 4 stars. I rate the friendliness 4 stars. I rate the value 5 stars. The value was the best compared to others. I can't rate the care services or activities yet. It is not applicable. So far so good.

Everything is going fine for my mother so far since her move into forest Ridge. It is still very early to give a good review. The staff has been very nice.
It's clean and the staff is friendly.reviewed on: 08/14/2015 by Anonymous
It's clean and the staff is friendly. They offer a catering service for food. If they added on any more things, a kitchen would be nice, since it's getting bigger and bigger. They could add a few more activities. It's affordable for someone that has a fixed income. I really appreciate that they have a chapel onsite, and offering a spiritual aspect to the community. They have services for different faiths. When I walked in it was an answer to my prayers.
